One of the toughest challenges you face as an engineering leader is staying current while preparing yourself and your teams for change.

There's a requirement to understand the technical issues facing engineers day-to-day and the responsibility to help them navigate an uncertain future.

So, how do you stay in the loop? And how can you ensure your decisions are not just reactive but proactive, shaping the future rather than merely responding to it?

This talk is about how to overcome this challenge and we’ll discuss:

  • Strategies to develop a proactive mindset by tapping into your experience, intuition, and awareness to anticipate future events and trends.
  • Tools to identify areas you need to be up to date by exploring the three areas you need relevant knowledge about.
  • How to effectively navigate situations where current knowledge is lacking, or intuition is outdated by leveraging your 'leadership stack'.
