(34a) Yay! I'm a Manager...Now What?


Jurgens-Kowal, T. A. - Presenter, Global NP Solutions
You’ve just been promoted to your first supervisory role, but the landscape feels strange. You are spending more time with people than with technical issues. It seems like there are no “right” answers and you thought you’d be working less hours with more recognition!

The reality is that managers need different skills to be successful than we’ve learned in our traditional chemical engineering education. As managers, we need to learn delegation, negotiation, and conflict and time management to be successful. In this presentation, you will learn tips and techniques to identify the severity of team conflicts and how to utilize creative conflict to improve team performance.

If you’re a new or seasoned manager or faculty member, you will want to attend this presentation to learn what drives conflict and how to build trust on your teams for increasing innovation. These skills are vital for new managers transitioning from a technical role to leading people.
