Success and Learning Patterns for First Time Managers

First Session: 

Hosted by Sridhar Ramakrishnan

Senior Director of Engineering, Developer Experience and Productivity at Slack

As a former engineer who has gone through the transition to engineering manager, I have personally navigated many of the challenges and successes that first time managers face. I'm excited to share my experiences, lessons learned, and provide insight through this Circle which I have designed to help participants better understand and apply successful learning patterns. I'm confident that the sessions I have prepared will empower participants to become better leaders as they start their journey into management.

Circle Description

This Circle will help first time managers (Engineering Managers with less than 2 years experience in management) to understand the success and learning patterns for success in their role. The Circle is composed of four online sessions and will be held by a mentor. The mentor will introduce the participants to the topic, allow them to get to know each other and provide an opportunity to ask questions and discuss challenges.

What people are saying about Sridhar

Sridhar has that rare ability to listens intently and then pause before giving you an answer that somehow gives you exactly what you're looking for. I often asked questions where Sridhar was able to go a step deeper into what I was asking and uncover the root of the challenge I was facing. He has a strong understanding of the unique challenges that each organisation provides and tailors his answers to focus on principles and frameworks.

Every session with Sridhar is incredibly productive and I always walk out with actionable items and a plan for what to do moving forward. His experience and expertise come through time and time again.

Tania Asimionesei - Engineering Manager @ Checkout.com

My first Plato session and I was lucky enough to select an incredible mentor who has conducted over 100 session. He answered all my questions and opened my eyes to how different engineering orgs are when it comes to communication, knowledge management and guiding principles.
