A Message from Terry:

Attention Engineers Who Dream of More!

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.

Life & Career Coaching for Engineers

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:

  • Improved Communication Skills
  • Learning How to Motivate People
  • Developing Team Building Skills
  • Discovering How to Promote Employee Engagement
  • Learning How to Think Positively and Encourage Positivity in Others
  • Creative Problem Solving
  • Confidence to Pursue and Excel in New Roles

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.

Leadership and Professional Coaching for Individuals & Corporations

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.

Dear Terry: As you know, when we first talked with you last fall, we were experiencing some serious problems within our management team. There was a great deal of distrust and morale was dropping. Certain managers were acting in a heavy-handed manner with their people. We were also losing employees who were giving us negative reviews during exit interviews. I personally used to dread coming to work because of all the turmoil. With these concerns in mind, you came in and partnered with us to develop a program that would address the specific issues that we were facing. Your commitment to stay with us until the problems were resolved was especially appreciated, as was the personal interest you took in helping us deal with and improve our situation. The fact that you have an engineering background was a major selling point since you would be dealing with highly technical employees. Your ability to “speak the language” was a big asset. Since the program, the transformation in our staff has been tremendous. Attitudes in general are better, there is a great level of trust among the management team and we now have a much more pleasant work environment. Even better, we have had several of our ex-employees return and all are commenting on the positive changes they see. With results this good, we fully intend to bring you back to work with more of our employees in the near future. We want to continue to build on the progress that has been made while reinforcing the positive changes that have already occurred. Once again, thank you for your time and commitment to the staff here at Noltex.
Randy Boeding, Senior Vice President, Noltex
