Becoming T-Shaped: A Professionals Development Boot Camp


T-Shaped professional development consists of three competencies, developing the whole self, building the "five-stack" of professional/business skills and defining and managing your professional expertise. The "top of the T" consists of the whole self and professional/business skills. The "bottom of the T" is your professional expertise.

For the past three decades we've consistently focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) skill development, putting a great deal of energy around "bottom of the T" development. This model is failing us in the face of rapid change and disruption. A professional can no longer base their entire career on a "bottom of the T" skill set which may be disrupted in six years. Disruption breeds complexity which introduces chaos if an organization doesn't have the skills to work through the complexity as a team. In this two-day training, you will dive deep into the concepts necessary for moving from an I-shaped to a T-shaped professional.

  • How to recognize, understand, define and determine T-Shapeness in yourself and others
  • Evaluate and learn the essential skills and competencies of a T-Shaped leader / knowledge worker
  • Experience the value T-Shaped skills and competencies bring to your work
  • The three main components of a T-Shaped leader / knowledge worker and how to utilize them
  • Learn the whole self-concepts like brain development, cognitive biases, negative self-talk and stress management
  • How to build new neuropathways and become a cognitively diverse thinker
  • The 5 Core Professional Skills Competencies
  • Baseline, Assess and Rank Current State Expertise in Whole Self and Professional Skills
  • Discover, Learn and Interact with peers on Business Skills Competencies
  • Explore how to better plan and adapt your technical expertise in the face of chaotic change, so you are prepared when disruption hits your selected technical fields
