Debugging your Career: How to increase your ability to win as a manager
12:00 PM - 12:30 PM, October 15 (PDT)


Most managers were previously individual contributors that transitioned to management without any coaching on critical leadership capabilities: what should they optimize for, how executives evaluate them, or how to accurately assess (and fix) gaps in their skill sets, etc. As such, they eventually reach a point where they don't understand how to advance to the next level and stall their careers. Research shows 60 percent of new managers fail within the first 24 months and 40% of new Executives fail within 18 months. Even more become walking dead, stuck in current (or similar) positions, doing enough to not be fired but clearly not enough to progress. Stalled careers turn into an atrophied careers and lead to increasingly less interesting roles. Grand Rounds CTO and SVP of Engineering, Wade Chambers, will draw from 25 years of experience in Silicon Valley to walk through rubrics developed over time, first hand experiences (often learned the hard way), and leading research to help you optimize your management career.
