When it comes to being promoted through the ranks in the field of Engineering, Shelley Row, has seen new managers struggle in one common area: leadership. While they have the technical skills and experience needed to do the job, they lack foundational leadership skills. Shelley grew up in an industry where she was told there was no place for emotions in the workplace.
