Dealing with Power and Dynamics: Discover Your Leadership Style and Influence Stakeholders (edX)
Learn to lead teams and manage stakeholders effectively and strategically to encourage cooperation and successful performance. Engineers have unique skills that give them the potential to be highly competent business leaders. As leaders, engineers have clear advantages: they are analytical, technically skilled, project-based, good with numbers and well-used to problem-solving. However, engineers cannot rely on this skillset alone when exercising leadership in today’s world. Problems have to be solved within complex networks of stakeholders, each with their own dynamics, interests, perspectives and power.
