Are you losing your technical talent when you should be keeping it?

Technology leaders can struggle with who is best suited to move into management. Individual contributors grapple with whether they must go into management to advance and how to not lose cred and keep their skills fresh if they decide to take that path. The mental models and motivations of technologists are often misunderstood - leaving them feeling isolated and frustrated. Greg Lems, CTO of Placeable, will share insights that he's learned as a leader of technologists for the past two decades about how technologists can be coached to understand differing viewpoints, learn from one another, collaborate effectively, find their next opportunity, and ultimately grow their careers.
