Engineering Management Institute (EMI) President Anthony Fasano, P.E. was recently featured in an American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Interchange Video entitled From Civil Engineer to Manager. ASCE Interchange is a multi-part series of educational videos on important issues in the engineering community produced by ASCE.
In each monthly 6- to 7-minute segment, Casey Dinges, ASCE’s senior managing director of public affairs, membership, and marketing, engages experts and other leading voices in interviews from the studios of LAI Video in Washington, DC.
Here is Fasano’s full October 2018 ASCE Interchange video…
In this video Fasano answers the following questions:
- Civil engineers at most firms, usually early in their careers, must decide whether they want to take the technical path or the management path. How does an engineer decide or know which way they should go?
- If the civil engineer has decided they want to take the management path, what are some ways the engineer can show their boss they are ready to manage?
- What skills do you think a civil engineer must have to be a manager? Of those, which three skill do you think are the most important?
- If they don’t have these skills, how can they develop these skills?
- What’s the difference between a manager and a leader?
- Are there any good books or podcasts you’d recommend that provide more insight into managing?
This is Fasano’s second ASCE Interchange Video. His first, which published in January of 2016 here, covered recruiting and hiring trends in civil engineering and has had over 11,000 views to date.
