Emerging Leaders Navigate Their Career Path

SPE has actively participated in the Emerging Leaders Alliance (ELA) since its inception. The alliance allows partnering societies to nominate delegates who come together to expand their leadership skills through a multiday event using direct teaching, group work, and self-study exercises. Attendees are primarily early career professional society leaders from the eight engineering partner societies who are currently interested in improving their management skills. More than 80 SPE young professional members have had the opportunity to attend the event so far.

The 2016 ELA conference focused on a variety of topics, including performance management, emotional quotient, and technical-to-management transitions. The interviewees featured in this article span a range of experience levels: a young professional, an experienced professional in a technical position, and an experienced professional in a management position. Each illustrates the relevance and application of the event’s chosen leadership topics despite one’s career path.
