How to Drive Your Team to Deliver on Time without Driving them Nuts: Leadership, Deadlines, and Schedules, oh my

Leading stellar engineers is not the same as leading ordinary engineers.  Learn the differences, and learn how to lead your team to produce brilliant results.

Leaders have the opportunity to work with some very talented employees.  And some of those talented employees might be prima donnas.  How can you lead teams with highly gifted people to deliver game-changing results (or even just plain awesome results)?

In this fast-paced talk, you'll learn why "the difference between not-so-great leaders and great leaders is the ability to manage stars."  And you'll get some tips on just how to do that!

Many leaders, when faced with slipping project schedules, want to tweak the schedule, hire a herd of consultants. Or they blame the difficult star performer for being disruptive, and they want to know how to "fix" him or her.  Learn why neither of these is the right approach.

Leadership skills will define your career.  Those who practice the skills defined in this lecture take their careers to the highest levels.


Leslie Martinich is an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer who works with leaders around the globe who want to improve their ability to deliver innovative products.
