what it takes to be a manager

Technical experts: Do you have what it takes to be a manager? Find out here

Hey there, technical expert. I’m one of you. I’m an engineer who made the leap into management and leadership…and it didn’t always go well. In fact, I’d never have won the “boss-of-the-year” award. So, what went wrong? That’s easy. I didn’t fully appreciate the gap between technical skills and management skills (much less leadership skills). I thought I only needed to know the work technically, run a good meeting, make a compelling presentation, and present myself as a professional. All that stuff is necessary but it’s not nearly sufficient. What was missing?

I’ve spent years seeking the answer to that question. After dozens of interviews with leaders and years of personal experience I found a way to uncover the answer and help others better understand, what I call, The Gap. And I developed this process into a program. It’s become one of my most popular programs because of the insight revealed. That insight is too good to keep quiet. That’s why I’m offering this virtual workshop for FREE…. but only twice

Now you can discover for yourself the breadth of The Gap between where you are and where you need to be as a manager. Within 60-minutes, you will have more clarity on the gap YOU need to bridge to make the leap into management (more successfully than I did). And it doesn’t cost anything but an hour of your time.

So, what’s the catch?

On one hand, there isn’t one. You see, I believe the world needs more technical professionals in management and leadership positions. After all, wouldn’t we all benefit from rational, logical decision-making? To realize that vision, we tech experts must enhance our management prowess. This free webinar (offered on two dates) is my personal effort to jump start the process. It all begins with awareness of the gap we need to bridge. 

Of course, it’s not possible to close the gap in one 60-minute virtual workshop. That’s why we also developed a program series, the 60-Day Blue Fjord Leadership Challenge, to assist you in growing those skills you need to close the gap. We’ll mention more at the end of the webinar and provide a discount code if you want to accept the challenge. But you don’t have to take advantage of the 60-Day Blue Fjord Leadership Challenge to benefit from the free webinar. If you want to go deeper, you can. If you don’t, there’s no obligation. Do what’s right for you.  Join us to learn what you need to know to move up AND be a respected, sought-after manager. 

Register here for the 60-minute virtual workshop. Two dates to choose from!

April 20th at 3pm ET

April 22nd at 7pm ET

I look forward to seeing you (a future manager and leader) then.
