On November 7, 2017, the UBC CSCE welcomed Greg Nichvalodoff, a local business coach specializing in organizational and leadership development, to the UBC campus. Greg provided a presentation on the topic of leadership, in particular how young engineers entering the industry can apply the concepts of effective leadership in their entry level roles. The workshop emphasized the universally applicable concepts of leadership that may be considered as only necessary to higher level positions, but actually have a large impact at all tiers of an organization. Greg’s use of anecdotes and analogies made the workshop as entertaining as it was helpful, and he touched on many practicable actions and attitudes that can contribute to stronger leadership. For further details on the topics covered in the workshop, Greg recommends the following reading:
- The Leadership Challenge
- The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team
- Difficult Conversations
- Crucial Conversation
- Work Types
- Effective Coaching
The UBC CSCE would like to thank Greg Nichvalodoff and Inscape Consulting Group for the insightful workshop. For further information about Greg and Inscape Consulting Group, visit the webpage or follow him on LinkedIn.
