Necessary Bridges: Public Speaking and Storytelling for Project Managers and Engineers
by Rashid N. Kapadia
Question: "What are the qualities of a Great Engineering Leader?"
Answer: To be a great engineering (or any other field) leader, one must be a good allrounder, and more important, one must be--at the very least--a good enough communicator.
Every project manager and engineer
can be a better project manager and engineer
by becoming a better / expert public speaker and storyteller
I had this epiphany years ago, after a conversation with a 360 degree evaluation / feedback facilitator.
I went on to write a book evangelizing public speaking to project managers, engineers, IT professionals, and all STEM professionals. www.NecessaryBridges.com
Here (https://youtu.be/02LhRONZ7YI) I make the case to an audience of project managers and engineers.
Engineers: Unless you are content to remain an "individual contributor" for your complete professional life, you ignore the power of public speaking at your own professional peril.
