Objective

Build the awareness and habits of effective engineering managers

Before this cohort
You feel uncertain about your performance, and unsure how to approach interactions with your direct reports (and your manager). Your team relies heavily on your output and you feel like you’re doing multiple jobs at once.
After this cohort
You get energy from knowing what your team members want or need, and by figuring out how to support them to achieve the best possible results for themselves and your company. Your team works with trust, autonomy, and focus.
