Ms. Teresa P J Armstrong
Introduction to "Soft Skills" Leadership & Professional Development
Professional Derailment: Lessons for Staying on Track
April 19, 2017 6:00pm Networking and Dinner, 7:00pm Lecture
Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory Building 1 (Lecture in Parsons Auditorium)
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).
