The Dao of Tech Leadership


Duration: 50 mins
Kate Wardin
Senior Engineering Manager, Target Corporation

Effectively managing humans requires a certain level of self-awareness. Therefore, understanding your WHY and what drives you is vitally important to lead and influence people in tech.

In this session, Kate Wardin will lead participants through a few powerful activities to discover their own purpose and understand how it drives their actions, decisions, and in their daily lives. Participants will capture their learnings along the way into a file that should resonate with all technologists - a manager README.
