Eng Managing vs Directing: Key Skills for making the move

First Session: 

Hosted by Shannon Vettes

Product & Engineering Leadership Coach at ImpalaPM.com

I am relevant to mentor this Circle because I have personally made the transition from Eng Manager to Director and have also coached others through the same change. With my experience in managing both roles, I am well-equipped to guide participants through their own journey. Through interactive sessions, I am excited to share key skills and insights that will help individuals make a successful move to the director position.
