Your organization pays a lot of money for technical talent, both salaries and certification/technical classes.  With career emphasis on coding instead of people, you may have very talented technologists who struggle to work with others. Unfamiliar with emotional intelligence and people protocol, your talented technical people may be in trouble for speaking harshly to customers and peers. It’s critical that these valuable people learn to communicate, influence and connect. You can teach that!

After attending this webinar, you’ll learn how to:
  • Identify learning objectives and outcomes for growing the people skills of your technical talent.
  • What’s Agile got to do with it?
  • Go where they are: leverage games and competitions to ease them into new perspectives.
  • Learn to combine technical and non-technical staff to collaborate over real issues in the business AND grow respectful relationships.
