Technical Leadership Masterclass with Pat Kua
Join us for an immersive and enlightening Technical Leadership Masterclass with renowned expert Pat Kua. During this masterclass, Pat Kua will share his invaluable insights and experiences in technical leadership, understanding how you can make the shift from maker to multiplier regardless of what your current role is.
This course is split into four different areas where we will take a broad overview of what it means to be a technical leader and understand more about the mindset shift of technical leadership. Then we’ll delve into what to focus on when you’re leading tech to minimise complexity. Leading a team means leading other people and that can be really hard. We’ll explore different techniques and strategies to appreciate, motivate and grow people before understanding ways you can lead yourself more effectively. Learn practical ways you can better manage and prioritise your time, deal with the stress and uncertainty of leadership and find ways you do not have to feel alone as a leader.
Gain a deeper understanding of the skills and strategies, apply those skills with interactive exercises and connect and learn from industry peers as well.
