• Venue: Capital Factory, Austin, TX
  • November 7, 2019

We're facilitating full-day workshops for technical leaders before the conference. The sessions are a fantastic way to dive into leadership and management principles and supercharge your toolkit ready for the office.

Please note, the workshop tickets are sold separately from the conference and the workshop takes place at a different venue on the day before the conference.

Demystifying Management

When you switch from an individual contributor role to a manager role, you might find yourself floating in a sea of uncertainty. What does success look like as a manager? How do you know if you’re doing a good job or not, with such a long feedback loop between your actions and their outcome? How do you set the right tone and expectations for your team?

Building Alignment

What if you could get at the heart of what was important to your coworkers and stakeholders? What if you could navigate difficult conversations and get buy-in on the things you cared about? You'd be able to break through the friction and miscommunication that slow everything down. You'd be able to build alignment on shared goals, even when there's conflict. You'd be able to lead, even without authority.

Leadership through Visibility

Visible tech leaders are great for their companies and their communities: their conference talks inspire peers (and help company recruitment!), their internal presentations influence stakeholders and team culture, and their blog posts sometimes even spur industry innovation. But many of tech’s best ideas never get shared—because we get too overwhelmed, nervous, or self-critical to start. Let’s change that. Join us and learn how to find and own your unique expertise, and communicate your ideas to any audience.
