Once the hiring round is done, your most important job begins: managing and coaching engineers through their careers. In a highly competitive talent landscape, how do you develop and retain your engineers for the long-haul? First, dig deep to understand what motivates each individual on your team, even when they may not know the answers themselves. Look beyond the career ladder, and consider how you can make your team feel seen and understood as individuals. Then, design a plan to help each of them paint and navigate the narrative arc of their own careers.

This session will share real-world experiences that will help attendees with practical questions and tips for building nuanced pictures of their team members. It will also offer a coaching framework to help attendees thoughtfully develop and guide direct reports so they can find fulfilling experiences that keep them in your organization over the long term.
