In this episode, we’re kicking off a series where we will be diving into the four key drivers of great engineering managers. I talk to Seth D. Scheilz, Professional Engineer at Black & Veatch in Kansas City, about the first of these four key drivers: providing your team members with engineering career growth opportunities. Seth tells us about the things that he has done to facilitate the growth of the teams he has managed in his career.
The four key drivers of successful engineering managers, based on research we have conducted at the Engineering Management Institute, through the design of an diagnostic tool we are building called the CMAP (Current Management Ability Potential) Diagnostic Tool include:
