In 2009, when my child was two, I suddenly became a Tech Comm manager again. In the past ten years, I’ve thought many times that managing a Tech Comm team was just like being a parent – I’m using the same negotiation, leadership, and sometimes counselling skills for these two areas of my life. I want to share these similarities with you.
In this session, attendee’s will learn:
- A different way to consider manager-team interactions and dynamics.
- How to apply skills learned from parenting when managing and leading a team.
- The kinds of skills you need to succeed (or at least, not go bonkers) in both management and parenting.
- You will *not* learn about how to become a parent.
