    CSPE Virtual Lunch Break

    Feb 23, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (PT)

    Next CSPE Virtual Lunch Break on February 23 @ 12:00 noon

    Join us for our next CSPE Virtual Lunch Break, where you'll have the chance to virtually network in real time with California Engineers from across the state and discuss issues important to PEs in California.

    For February, we'll start the first of our three part discussion series on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Engineering Ethics. Last year, we introduced the role of machine learning in engineering and for our next three discussions, we'll be discussing AI more broadly, talking about its possible impacts to how PEs conduct their work.

    Register

    First time joining a CSPE Lunch Break? No problem! We'll be logged into the system 30 minutes early to help with any setup questions.

    The High Demand for Social Skills in Engineering

    Mar 14, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (ET)

    Engineers with a balanced set of technical and social skills earn more, are promoted faster, and are highly sought by employers. As the pace of technology increases, so does the demand for social skills in the workplace. This webinar explains why a singular, technology-based skill-set is insufficient to satisfy industry expectations transformed by innovation and technology. Finally, this webinar illuminates why engineers with highly developed social skills are more engaged and efficient, better at collaboration and problem solving, experience higher customer loyalty, and become indispensable members of their organizations.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. The rapid pace of technological change and the effects on the engineering industry;
    2. The importance of social skills in the rapidly changing technology-based workplace;
    3. Why engineers who possess a balanced set of technical and social skills earn more and get promoted faster; and
    4. Rules of thumb to develop social skill competencies.

    Speaker: Randy P. Wall, P.E., MPA
    Speaker bio: Randy P. Wall, P.E., MPA is the president of the Engineering Leadership Institute and is a values-based leadership consultant grounded in a 33-year career in engineering, business, political science, and entrepreneurial mastery. Wall received his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of California at Davis, his Master of Public Administration from Montana State University in Bozeman, and is currently a PhD candidate in the American Studies program at MSU, with a dissertation in Leadership in the American Engineering Industry.
