Purpose and Background

This webinar offers information and actionable steps to help you navigate the uncertainty that naturally comes with the transition from engineer to manager.


Master the interpersonal, communication, and management strategies you need to successfully transition from technical expert to manager. In this webinar you will learn to manage your time, communicate effectively, and build resilient teams.

The reward is confident teams who demonstrate their ability to work well independently and together as a group to realize goals.

Purpose and Background

This webinar offers insight and practical steps to help you earn trust and be effective in your new role.


Starting a position as a new engineering manager can be overwhelming or stressful at the least, even for the most seasoned professional. Perhaps you have been promoted to management within your current organization or you have joined a new organization. Either way, new expectations can be a source of pressure for new managers. Many managers tend to rely on their experience, education, and other credentials or recommendations to support them in their new role. That’s fine, to a point. Every new opportunity is just that—a clean slate where professionals can essentially start over and re-position themselves for greater impact and levels of success. A New Engineering Manager’s First 90 Days provides insight and action steps to help both new and experienced managers position themselves and their teams for peak performance.
