Engineers commonly take an interest in things such as technology, electrical, or structural concerns, to name a few. Inner concerns, such as feeling frustrated, angry, and interpersonal issues such as conflict and cooperation are not things learned in school. But making decisions and creating solutions without the necessary emotional facts is ultimately doomed to fail. We need not live a life so conflicted. Soft skills for engineers are simply the blueprint or underlying code that makes life glide.
You’re ambitious and why not when you’ve got the talent to back up your dreams. But when life is pulling you in every direction but the one you’d like for yourself, things just get worse rather than better. When you feel disappointed because you know you’re not working as hard as you know you could, talk with someone who might just understand. Learn to finesse your life and feel happy, as you know you should.
Engineering Leadership. As a successful managing engineer you need to be “on” when you’re at work. Although you have always found a way to do this, you’re feeling consistently angry and you have for a long time. Should you focus on anger management or are there underlying mechanisms that you can address? Confidential counseling with a Psychologist or an in-depth coaching program will assist you to answer these questions and to take action that’s really dialed in.
Interpersonal Conflict & Office Politics
An Issue of Engineering Leadership. It might be somewhat disconcerting to admit that despite how capable and successful you have been up till the present moment, that you now find yourself embroiled in conflict. You are definitely not feeling corporate support. It’s almost bizarre, but you feel their pressure as if you have somehow slipped out of favor and are no longer seen as the high performer you’ve always been. Believing in continued personal and professional development, you connect with your Psychologist.
Personal Issues at Home
Engineers do have a personal life. Work seems to be going well, however, stress and tense relations at home are causing you to withdraw. You realize that you’re not being attentive. Truthfully, intimacy has waned. If generalizing work-related skills to your home life is a challenge, maybe we can smooth out the transition, together.
You don’t feel acknowledged, or understood. What you have to say seems to get glossed over without due consideration. In general terms, you’re feeling unhappy and dissatisfied. You find yourself considering options you don’t really want for yourself or your family. Engage a 3-month coaching program for yourself, or secure 2 – 3 individual sessions before you decide.
