Structured soft skills (not only) for Technical Leaders.

You are not a born leader. You haven't been prepared to be one but you were chosen to be. And then everything changed. Now you should be a good communicator, negotiator, mediator, facilitator, motivator. You have heard that you should be a servant leader, should prefer collaboration over contract negotiation, people over processes but … you think: „What the heck should I exactly do?“ Most of the leadership hints are general, fuzzy and unstructured. If it sounds familiar to you, this is a talk for you.

We will talk about fundamental soft skills in a structured way. You will see a lot of schemas, diagrams, algorithms, dependencies you weren't aware of before. This way misty soft world will become familiar and easier to understand for left-brainers (people loving to think in an analytical way).

What we will talk about?

  • How to resolve tough (conflict) situations.
  • How to find a problem solution.
  • How to conduct effective meetings in a way nobody told you about earlier.

Who will benefit from this?

  • Technical leaders, team leaders, any other kind of leaders working dealing with software development.
  • Leaders and all technical folks interested in developing their soft skills.
  • Technical guys (developers, testers, ux designers) at least having clue that soft skills might be really important in their work.
