Engineering Leadership – Becoming a More Effective Leader
April 18-20 or October 3-5, 2017 at Notre Dame Stayer Center for Executive Education or November 14-16, 2017 at the Notre Dame Chicago campus at 224 South Michigan Ave. 



One of the most critical career transitions for engineers and technical professionals is the move from individual contributor to manager and leader.  Whether that is in a formal management role or as a project leader, strong interpersonal and leadership skills can determine future opportunities.


Notre Dame’s College of Engineering and Mendoza College of Business have combined resources to present a professional development opportunity for technical professionals who are either preparing for this transition or have already begun to move into a leadership role.  On April 18,19 and 20th, 2017,  Engineering Leadership – becoming a more effective leader will be presented at the Stayer Center for Executive Education.  The program will also be presented at the Stayer Center again on October 3,4, and 5th at the Notre Dame location in Chicago on November 14,15 and 16th, 2017.

Notre Dame’s Engineering Leadership program is designed to provide participants with a proven way to become effective leaders and managers – and to remain strong and productive performers.  During the program they will:

  • Learn to be consciously competent managers with effective leadership and managerial skills,  including performance development and team leadership.
  • Develop interpersonal skills and awareness that will improve performance – both their own and that of  their employees.
  • Design a specific plan to become successful leaders within their own organizations.

This hands-on workshop challenges the participants to assess their own leadership styles, understand how to motivate employees and help those employees reach their full potential, develop skills in the areas of constructive feedback, conflict resolution and problem solving, and better understand how to meet the difficult challenges of managing people, instead of data or things!

Who Should Attend:
This program is designed for technical professionals who have managerial or leadership responsibilities – Team Leaders, Project Leaders, Section Heads, Supervisors, Department Heads, Managers, etc.   It also includes any managers who do not have strong technical backgrounds, but now find themselves leading people with technical training and responsibilities.

The program is approved to award 15 PDH (Professional Development Hours) for Professional Engineers (P.E.) toward their continuing education requirement.
