Putting Power Into Practice as a Staff+ Engineer

The power of a Staff+ engineer can be used for many things, such as: surfacing interesting work, clarifying your team’s priorities, promoting a sustainable work/life balance, and helping the engineers around you to grow into larger roles.

In this talk, I’ll discuss a multitude of ways that you can use your power to improve your organization’s culture and feel good about the work you are doing.

You will leave this talk with knowledge on:

  • Powerful behaviors: techniques to guide situations toward your goals
  • Powerful phrases: words to help you guide interactions toward a positive outcome
  • Mentoring and leadership techniques: actions and words to help your colleagues grow into the best version of themselves
