The 10 Major Career Pitfalls

for Technical Professionals

How YOU think about…

  • Your “Ideas”
  • Delegation
  • Always having the right answer
  • Technical Interests
  • The idea that “Data Rules”
  • Non-Technical People
  • Handling Difficult Conversations
  • Teams and Systems
  • Professionalism
  • The Role of Past Success


 …is affecting your ability to advance in your Company.

 You and Your Company DESERVE BETTER

  A Great Opportunity to...

  • Address behavioral gaps in your performance
  • Learn what your company really wants from you
  • Improve your performance and communication skills
  • Achieve your full potential…


You are a technical professional and an individual contributor. Fantastic! You have skills that were difficult to acquire. You are smart and you do good technical work. But your organization requires more from you. They want you to use your technical knowledge to support others and to work in teams.  Your ideas are not the only ideas that are important.  You are struggling because college didn’t prepare you for this shift in perspective.  Often decisions are not made based on logic or data and you push for what is “right”.  And maybe, you are experiencing this not just in the early stages of your career, but throughout most of your career, and you have been fighting this organizational push.  And now you seem to be left out of the really interesting projects and you don’t understand why.


This ASME webinar will address 10 of the major pitfalls that most engineers experience in their careers and how to get around them.  These pitfalls represent the behavioral “gaps” between what college taught you and what most engineering organizations ultimately want from you, long-term.

Who Should Attend:

Engineers, Early Career Engineers, Entrepreneurs, Technical Professionals,

Technical Supervisors, Faculty, Engineering Students, and Engineering Managers.

This event is targeted for engineers and technical professionals at all stages of their career.
