Leadership Skills Clinics and Digital Badging
Engineering Leadership Skills Clinics are action-oriented, short-term classes that build your confidence and capabilities in engineering teamwork and leadership. Each Clinic comprises two interactive workshops separated by an Action Interval in which you will experiment with new skills and analyze the results.
Engineering Leadership Skills Clinics offered for the second-half of the Fall ’22 semester:
ENGRG 4805 – Positive Team Culture
Building a Positive Team Culture teaches any team member (not just the leaders!) how to shape norms, expectations, and behaviors to support the team’s goals. You’ll learn tools to align members with the mission of the team and elicit high performance from everyone. During the action interval, you’ll apply these skills in real-world situations and reflect on your experience. The second and final workshop is dedicated to sharing your ‘lessons learned’ and forming a plan to continue to practice the skill of building a positive team culture.
Class will meet Thursday, October 20 & Thursday, November 3
5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
ENGRG 4830 – Giving Feedback
Giving Feedback will give you a framework, method, and language for giving others feedback they can use. You’ll learn how to take the sting out of critical feedback and be more comfortable offering feedback for the sake of team success. During the action interval, you’ll apply these skills in real-world situations and reflect on your experience. The second and final workshop is dedicated to sharing your ‘lessons learned’ and forming a plan to continue to practice the skill of giving effective feedback.
Class will meet Tuesday, October 18 & Tuesday, November 1
4:45 p.m. – 7:45 p.m.
In addition to learning a new skill, each clinic will carry a 0.5 credit and a digital microcredential; complete six of them and earn a digital Mastery Badge in Engineering Leadership Fundamentals to display on your resume, LinkedIn, and social media pages. Total time commitment is 10-12 hours over 3-4 weeks. Each semester Clinics on several topics will be offered.
Earn Engineering Leadership Fundamentals Badges
Our mission is to prepare all Cornell Engineers with the professional skills they need to succeed in their careers and in the world. Potential employers already know you will be ready with your technical prowess. What makes the difference is how well you manage relationships, collaborate, communicate, and lead.
Digital badges are an established way to show the world that you have mastered these skills. You will earn a digital credential for each Skills Clinic you complete to a high standard of excellence. Upon earning six credentials, you will be awarded the Mastery Badge in Engineering Leadership Fundamentals. Display your badges on your resume, on LinkedIn, in your portfolios, and on your social media platforms. Get an edge. Show your potential employers that you are prepared to lead.
