Event Description:
Effectively managing and leading project teams is crucial to successfully delivering engineering projects; however, the skills neccessary to accomplish this are rarely taught in a traditional engineering education. This workshop series aims to provide participants with the knowledge and tools to improve their abilities to delegate, oversee the work of others, and budget resources to promote efficient team performance. Hands on activities and role playing will be incorporated in the sessions to facilitate the transplantationof new skills to the workplace. Enterprise level topics including strategic planning, finances, and human resources will also be covered to help participants understand how they can positively impact global firm operations.

This leadership program is targeted towards engineers who are gaining responsibility for managing projects and leading small teams. Participants will be expected to attend all sessions and embrace a collaborative commitment to improving leadership in the engineering community.

Courses will be taught by University of St. Thomas  professors including the series' main instructor, Dr. Nicole Zwieg Daly. As Director for Education & Programming at the Center for Etical Organizations at the
