A workshop series to help you achieve leadership success through superior education and values formation.
Presented jointly by ACEC Minnesota and the University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business
Effectively managing and leading project teams is crucial to successfully delivering engineering projects; however, the skills necessary 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 transplantation of 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 tailored for 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.
