Wednesday, October 17, 2018

  • 9:30 AM – 5:30 PM
  • Conference Chicago at University Centre, 525 S.State Street, Chicago IL 60605

There’s a lot more to open source and automation than the code. The Selenium Project values leadership, empathy, and communication (and more!) to build a welcoming, inclusive community. We want to offer a workshop that is vital to every OSS community or automation team, and ultimately, success.

Inspired by the iconic warrior of peace, Dr. Patty Evans will discuss how five basic Wonder Woman principles can be the key to successful Community Leadership.

Those with high emotional intelligence can quickly read a room, clue into subterfuge, and more easily show respect and empathy. Dr. Evans will teach how leaders can develop their emotional intelligence and use it to their advantage to manage their team to greater success.
