There are a few basic skills that get you 80% of the way to being a great tech leader. Learn and practise the key skills that will elevate your team.

Effective 1-on-1s

Do you want to learn what truly motivates others and why they behave in certain ways?
Have you ever had a 1on1 with a team member and felt like they’re holding back?

There’s a big difference between a conversation that gets at important truths, and one that just skates on the surface.

Learn how to listen and draw out what’s really happening so your team knows that they can count on you. An effective team trusts each other and a great 1-on-1 conversation is one of the best ways to build trust.

Giving Feedback

Do you get nervous when you think about giving someone negative feedback, worried how they might react? Are you tired of giving the same feedback over and over and not seeing any change in behaviour?

Learn how to give feedback that changes behaviour and reduces the chance of a negative reaction. Using a simple and concrete model, you’ll get a chance to practice delivering that feedback, and yes you’ll get feedback on your feedback.

Managing Conflict

The biggest problem in any software effort is getting the team to work together effectively. Learn how to manage disagreements and tensions on your team and get your team moving and delivering.

Disagreements and tensions will happen. Practice the key conversational skills to defuse and keep the team on track.

Who We Are

UpSpark is a team of experienced technology leaders who have built, led and coached teams at leading software companies like FreshBooks, Bitstrips and PagerDuty, among many others. We have come together to create an intense learning experience for tech team leads.
