Having technical knowledge and experience is one thing – being able to impart it to your staff is another. Too often, engineers and technical managers have trouble delegating tasks and responsibilities – which leads to staffers returning to dump multiple "fires" or problems back on their managers' desks ... while they lean back and wait on their firefighting manager for next steps.

Your employees will never realize their potential as long they can rely on you to do their firefighting for them.

This much-needed session explores this problem in detail and will give you the understanding and tools you need to get out of the firefighting business. Topics include:

  • Why managers become firefighters
  • The detrimental effect your firefighting has on the professional development of your staff
  • Specific steps to train your people to fight their own fires
  • The two most important things a manager must do and how they relate to firefighting
  • How firefighting and coaching are different
  • How proper delegation gets rid of the firefighting syndrome

Assessment of Learning Outcomes: 

Attendees will also have their commitment to ending departmental firefighting measured over a three-month period with a short True/False quiz.

Who Should Attend: 

Managers and other employees responsible for the performance of other staff, including staff engineers, department or division managers, project managers, and the firm's executive team.
