Engineers today start their careers with excellent technical skills and subject-matter expertise. However, they are often less able to cope with the people, procedures and pressures of the real world. This one-hour webinar discusses the 12 most important soft skills engineers need to be more effective in work and in life. Using straight talk and down-to-earth examples, skills covered include: decision-making, setting priorities and managing time, running meetings, working in teams, better understanding of yourself and others (like co-workers, clients and your manager!), leadership skills, negotiating, getting feedback, dealing with stress and having fun, and, of course, improving speaking, writing and listening. Selinger’s book is Stuff You Don’t Learn in Engineering School: Skills for Success in the Real World (Wiley-IEEE Press, 2004).
