"The company can appoint you the manager, but only your team can appoint you their Leader."

This presentation is intended to demonstrate to Professional Engineers that the leadership skills that you develop during your career will assist you greatly in being a successful manager of engineers, technical staff and administrative staff. It will demonstrate the requirement for professionals to be team builders. Examples will be given that will demonstrate good and not-so-good leadership skills. The goal is to provide the audience with the basic skills of good leadership.


Participants should learn that good leadership skills will make you a better team leader and a better manager of people in the future. The recognition that being a manager with good leadership skills will be a valuable asset.


Presenter: James (Jim) R. Inch, FEC, P.Eng.

In my professional career, I have developed what has been said was excellent leadership skills, which assisted me in my role as Manager of Transportation Engineering for the Ottawa office of a prominent engineering firm in Canada. I was also a member of the National Traffic Committee of the Canadian Institute of Transportation Engineers. My experience as a Project Manager for the Ottawa Light Rail project and a subsequent Construction Manager for that project allowed for the successful completion of a phase of the project.
