Developer First: A New Leadership MindsetNew
Developer First Leadership is the drive to focus on the growth and advancement of your team members before yourself. Kate Wardin will demonstrate how developer-first leadership can translate directly to the daily lives of technical leaders. Participants will leave with tactical methods to truly embrace the human side of software development and serve your teams as intentional, respectable, and inspiring leaders. Participants will be required to step outside their comfort zones as they share personal experiences and discuss challenging topics such as: giving feedback, working with different communication styles, facilitating effective (non-awkward) 1:1s, practicing authenticity, empowering developers to reach their full potential, and establishing powerful and bullet-proof morning routines to maximize your busy schedules. Be prepared to challenge your preexisting perspectives of technical leadership as we explore non-traditional approaches and techniques in these immersive, hands-on workshops and presentations.
