Topic Summary: As we enter the GIS profession, we largely focus our education on the technical skills we need to create maps, perform analysis, write scripts and so on. During the early parts of our career this makes sense and keeps our fundamental skills sharp. However as we advance in career, we will start to find ourselves in positions to lead teams, manage projects, work directly with clients, present findings in meetings and more. Our technical education does not really prepare us for this part of our career. This short presentation will talk about some of the skills I have found are critical to being a successful leader that my college and continuing education did not provide. Hopefully this will provide you with some ideas on what soft skills you should focus on and how to avoid some of the pit falls I have encountered.
