Free Productivity Guide
Need more time in your week? My free guide, Finding the 6th Day An Engineer's Quick Guide to Making More Time Now is a productivity guide built specifically for engineers to create 8 hours of productive time this week.
In this episode, I discuss impostor syndrome with Jeff Perry from morethan-engineering.com. We dig in to what it is, how it affects engineers, and how to manage it if you're ever faced with it in your own career.
In this episode, I discuss the the importance of recognition, how it can influence your engineering team for the better, the risks of not recognizing your engineers, and simple - yet effective - ways to recognize people, even during a pandemic.
In this episode, I discuss the value of disconnecting and getting away. Disrupting your normal work habits to make time and space to think deeply can yield wonderful results in terms of generating new and innovative ideas. Everyone needs time away from the office.
In this episode, I explore the importance of saying no in order to focus your attention on what's most important - your goals. Effective work - work that actually helps you achieve your goals - is reliant on being able to say no to things that don't line up with those goals. The episode also gives some concrete advice on how to deliver a "no" while still being professional.
