Announcing the Next EL SIG Meeting, May 17, 2012 [Robert Lasater]

The next meeting of the Engineering Leadership SIG will be held on May 17 in SAP Building 2 (3412 Hillview Avenue, Palo Alto, CA), in the Baltic/Caribbean rooms, starting at 7:00 PM. Doors open at 6:30 PM. The speaker is Camille Smith, Founder/President, Work In Progress Coaching, and her topic is "Take the Mystery out of People Issues with Analytics - Using Data & Dialogue to Develop People."

Leaders: Until you know what’s going on with your people, you won’t really know what’s going on with your team or company. Knowing how individuals make decisions, prefer to communicate and deal with change can make the difference between a team that’s awesome and one that’s awe-shucks. In this interactive session, we’ll use case studies (perhaps one from the EL SIG community!) and explore talent metrics that take the mystery out of people issues, focus developmental efforts and inform career path choices. If you’re interested in impacting performance, yours and those you manage, join us.

Speaker Mini-bio: Camille Smith combines her business experience in start-ups and Fortune 500 companies with her exceptional skills as a communicator and leadership consultant to help leaders and their teams be effective in a world of change. Work In Progress Coaching names her company and her philosophy: “Each of us is a ‘work in progress’, figuring out how to contribute, be satisfied and produce results worthy of who we are.” Her coaching produces business-critical results by building authentic relationships based on values, commitment, accountability and trust. She is a founding member of the Global Women's Leadership Network and has served as an executive coach for Warren Bennis’ Global Institute for Leadership Development. She lives with her family in Aptos.
