Leading a Technical Team: Approaches to managing specialist staff

Leading technical teams can be challenging when you do not share the same background. This regional workshop offers insights into how leaders from the public and private sectors manage specialist staff in areas such as engineering and programming.

Speakers will touch on:

  • Effective behaviours and influencing skills used in technical leadership - key approaches that have and have not worked well
  • Achieving successful delivery through others and creating the right environment 
  • How leaders promote the team vision and build team credibility 
  • What techniques are effective in helping the team deliver and achieve successful outcomes when you are not technical yourself
  • Developing an environment of trust and respect
  • Balancing multiple needs as a leader in a technical environment

The event will be jointly delivered by speakers from both public and private sector organisations.
