All too often, professionals are given the opportunity to take on management responsibilities based on the strength of their technical skills. Managerial roles, however, depend on achieving results through others—which requires a significantly different skill set.
Subject matter experts (SMEs) are valuable players on any team, but managing individuals who know more than you do about a particular subject can be challenging. In this course, learn how to identify the mindset and specific needs of the experts on your team, so that you can meet their expectations and provide them with the support they need to grow and excel.
Having the right technical talent is the key to competitive edge. Companies rely on technical professionals such as IT experts, developers, engineers, and data scientists to produce products and services, analyze information, and effectively communicate with vendors and customers. Knowing how to manage and motivate these technical professionals is critical for business success.
An organization’s talent is vital to its success. As a result, it’s crucial that companies provide their employees with the support they need to grow professionally. When managers and HR professionals ensure that their employees receive meaningful feedback from a variety of sources, they can help to spark positive change within their organization.
