A Message from Terry
Do you still love being an engineer, but want to take it to the next level?
Are you happy with your relationships – personal and professional – and are you happy with yourself?
Do you feel like you are making a meaningful contribution to the world?
Too many engineers answer “No” to questions like these. Too many engineers feel frustrated with the direction their lives and careers have taken. Too many engineers lack the confidence – and skills – to take the next step forward and upward.
We all know and live with the stereotype: insecure, introverted, nerdy, restrained, and narrowly focused – as well as sartorially challenged (pocket protectors, high-water pants, mixed plaids, and all ). As engineers, we are analytical and logical in our thinking, which some interpret as slow, boring, and insular, with little potential for advancement.
However, the reality is, some of the most interesting, funny, creative – and well-dressed – people out there are engineers. Almost everything we see and use was developed by some type of engineer. We are the builders, creators, and fixers. Frankly, the world benefits when we are at our best.
It’s time to accept our role as innovators, movers, and shakers – as the managers and executives who can lead the way to imaginative solutions to complex human problems – rather than solving soulless, abstract technological dilemmas.
It’s time to set aside your calculator and develop effective people skills and leadership tools, like:
I believe we can, and should, use our training and skills to continue building a better world, and helping to guide others to do the same, while also finding balance, joy, and happiness in our own professional and personal lives.
That’s where I come in. As a long-time professional engineer myself, as well as America’s Premier Engineer’s Coach, my goal is to help you develop critical leadership skills. Along with the focus, confidence, and clarity of purpose that you will find, my coaching will enable you to move beyond the design table to the management or executive position where you can make a difference, and achieve the professional goals you may have believed were out of reach for an engineer.

For Women… Women engineers face unique challenges in the workplace and in management positions. Click here to learn more about Leadership Coaching for Women Engineers.
I also work with companies to improve their management teams, helping individuals transition from technical roles into leaders, which involves very different skill sets. Not only does this reduce the failure rate from promoting engineers who are not quite ready to make the leap to management, it will also save your business time, energy, and money.
