Want to immediately make an impact on your leadership and communication capabilities? Whether you are a software engineer or a team leader, this course will help you be effective at teamwork as well as leading and managing people.
Leading and managing even a small team is no easy task, especially when you're a software engineer that's used to technical assignments. It takes great communication (written and verbal) and leadership. This course, Leadership and Communication Skills for Software Engineers, will teach you these two skills. First, you'll go over communication techniques that are essential for meeting with your internal/external customers, interviewing them, making presentations, and so much more. Next, you'll learn how to grow and cultivate a team of software engineers, interview candidates, hire, determine training needs, and develop the processes and standards for the team. Finally, you'll determine just how to lead, motivate, and manage your new team towards the business goals identified in your customer meetings and your manager's expectations. By the end of this course, you will be able to apply your leadership and communication skills, methods, tools and techniques to support your activities and responsibilities of a team leader.
