My career in experimental physics led me to manage technical staff consisting of engineers, technicians, and scientists. When I first started, my approach was that of a project manager who expected everyone to bring their own motivation and manage their relationships with the team. As time progressed I picked up skills to better manage individuals and select new employees. As I researched and implemented the best practices to build and maintain effective teams I did my own experimenting with the goal to further improve my team’s satisfaction and capability. With 20 years of management experience, I want to share what I’ve learned and also leverage the power of community to crowd-source new methods and define best practices.
