In this session of The Engineering Career Coach Podcast, I am going to provide an engineer who has a goal of becoming a partner, with some strategies he can use to overcome some challenges he is facing. His challenges include some of the typical daily struggles that all engineers face, trying to be productive yet maintain a high-quality engineering product, and spending his time on things that matter most.
Effective time management is critical with such a lofty goal of becoming a partner in an engineering company. During today’s session, I will walk my guest through a process to identify where his time should be spent and then help him prepare a plan to achieve that goal.
As always, I will also provide a career-changing tip at the end of the show. This week’s tip will provide you with a strategy that will help you to move towards your goals every day.
