Developing Tomorrow's Managers

850 Northwest 13th Avenue
Portland, OR 97209, US (map)



Join us the afternoon of November 7th for a session that will help guide stellar individual contributors who now find themselves leading a team of peers. As our tech community thrives and grows at lightning speed, keeping talent happy and giving them development opportunities is an important way to stay above the hiring competition. As individual employs excel, promotions are an obvious next step, but what happens when you promote a high performing individual contributor to lead a team without the tools to manage?

Tech Leaders - give your high performers more than a raise and title change and encourage their attendance at this event where they can chat among peers and thought leaders as they venture into the new (to them) realm of management. Consider attending yourself as well to guide your future staff promotions with the tools they need to succeed.

New or Developing Managers - join us for this session and a chance to network with others who are moving through similar pain points of the individual contributor who is now the team lead. Our suggested topics will evolve based on attendee feedback, so please leave comments on areas you’d like to discuss at this event upon registering.

Sample discussions planned for this session:

--fielding personality conflicts within teams dealing with difficult conversations among employees -managing your manager -shifting your development focus from product to people
