Be a brilliant people developer

Tutor: Meri Williams (CTO, Monzo)

People are hard, so why are they called “soft skills”? Much like technical skills, there is both science and art, theory and experience, to becoming good at leading, managing, coaching, mentoring & developing people. In this workshop we’ll look at some of that theory, share experiences and boost your ability to develop yourself and others.

Tech Lead Skills for Developers

Tutor: Pat Kua (Seasoned Tech Leader, patkua.com)

Congratulations! You’re now a Tech Lead? But what are you supposed to do differently than when you were just a software engineer? Many companies do not prepare people for the transition into a new role, that demands new skills. In this course, we will explore the definition of a Tech Lead, understand the different skills required to be an effective Tech Lead and learn some tools that you can immediately apply in your own team.

Demystifying Management

Tutor: Lara Hogan (Co-founder, Wherewithall)

As a manager, you may find yourself floating in a sea of uncertainty.

  • What does success look like?
  • How do you know if you’re doing a good job or not, with such a long feedback loop between your actions and their outcome?
  • How do you set the right tone and expectations for your team?

In this full-day workshop by Wherewithall, led by Lara Hogan, you will learn how to answer those questions and successfully navigate these uncertain waters.

Managing Growth: Upskilling Yourself to Scale Your Teams

Tutors: Cathy Chen (Founder, Capriole Consulting) and Whitney Greer (CEO, RebelMind Communications)

Growing your teams is one of the hardest things you have to do as a manager, but you can’t grow a team without nurturing your own skills as a leader. In this workshop, we will focus on the personal mindset changes that need to occur from when you’re managing a small team, to when you’re growing and managing larger ones.
