From Engineer to Corporate Leader
When: Friday, October 29th
Where: Watt Family Innovation Center Auditorium
Who: Open to Everyone
Join us on Friday, October 29th from 2:00-3:00 in the Watt Auditorium for a conversation with highly successful C-suite leaders—all Clemson alumni—in technical fields to learn more about their experiences, philosophies, and advice on how to prepare to be a leader in your field.
Many students who enter engineering and technical majors in college lack exposure or learnings on leadership skills. There is a need to help engineers get these critical life skills early in their careers. The concept for Engineering Leadership (www.engineering-leadership.com) was created with an emphasis on an engineering-minded framework that teaches five key elements at the heart of leadership: Optimism, Trust, Courage, Humility and Love. Surrounding that are four components with three subsets, for a total of 17 aspects, or constants, of successful leadership to create a full leadership spectrum.
The premise of this Engineering Leadership mindset is that despite the complexity of leadership, it can be broken down into fundamentals that provide a framework to lead effectively. We believe leaders are built, not born. By focusing on the constants, we can build strong technically-focused leaders who are prepared for future success.
This event is sponsored by the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences (CECAS) in partnership with Engineering Leadership (www.engineering-leadership.com).
