The Ascending Leaders in Tech course will feature six sessions. Each session will focus on a different aspect of the leadership skillset.
During the sessions, participants will work with advisors: well-established, successful tech industry leaders who will share their expertise and insights from their leadership journey.
Day 1: Orientation
Get to know your fellow attendees, advisors — and yourself. Participants will meet their new colleagues and conduct personal strength assessments to better define their leadership goals.
Day 2: Building Relationships
No leader succeeds alone. From hiring strategies to managing conflicts to developing culture, participants will learn how to maximize their most important assets — their people.
Day 3: Finance & Budgeting
Whether you like it or not, every tech leader is judged on the bottom line. Attendees will learn the fundamentals of budgeting, forecasting, revenue recognition and vendor management.
Day 4: Mental Resilience
Leadership requires sustained excellence. No one can escape burnout, but our advisors will discuss strategies to identify and mitigate burnout in themselves and colleagues while discovering resources that help build healthy work habits.
Day 5: The Executive Mindset
Tech leaders have to be versatile and plugged in. This session will help participants master the finer elements of leadership, from cybersecurity best practices to CRM management to public speaking.
Day 6: Leadership Impact
Emerging leaders have the potential to expand New Hampshire’s growing tech footprint. Our final session will cover how participants can contribute to a more connected and robust tech industry that benefits the entire state.
