April 19, 2017 6:00pm Networking and Dinner, 7:00pm Lecture

Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory Building 1 (Lecture in Parsons Auditorium)

Teresa Armstrong 19 April 2017

Presentation: Once an engineer achieves technical skills they must also have other skills. The challenges and complexity we face in our professional lives and our organizations can be compounded by the lack of self-awareness and the reality that “soft skills” matter.  A “derailer” is a weakness that requires improvement if we are to realize our potential. The presenter will explore four categories of “derailers” that leaders and professionals risk in their career journey.   Walk away with an action plan on how you will integrate “soft skills” into your professional career tool kit. 

This action plan can be further developed and fine-tuned by attending the follow-on Workshop on Saturday, 22 April.
Space is Limited so Register Early (Separate Registration Required)

Speaker: Over the last 20 years Ms. Teresa Armstrong has presented this subject at various national conferences including the Women of Color (WOC) , Black Engineer of the Year Awards (BEYA), and National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE). Her current and past consulting/coaching clients include AHC Inc., Maryland Paving, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Marriott International, and the USO.


Advance Registration $20 for Members, $25 for Non-members, and Students Free. Payments received after April 16th, add $5.

I attended this session and after 20 minutes I was kicked out and I do not know why.
I use these sessions for my INOCSE PDUs. Since I was kicked out of this session, am I not going to get credit for attending virtually?
I also would like to know why I was kicked out of the session.

Hi Kathryn,
I am not sure why you were kicked out of the session. We were at a different location (back to Building 1) after a long period in Building 200. Not an excuse but something could have gone wrong. I truly apologize. I do not know the guidelines for PDUs with virtual training but I do know that for a 1 hour session you would need to attend 75% of the session or 40 minutes out of the 1 hour. The session is also available on youtube (search INCOSE Chesapeake Chapter). Again, I am, sorry this happened.
