Working With Humans: Emotional Intelligence for Empowered Developers

Provided by: Compassionate Coding

To unlock our full potential as developers, we need more than just coding skills. Communication skills, for example, are essential when we’re convincing our team to adopt a new tool, negotiating tradeoffs with a product manager, or providing feedback in a code review. Even in the actual code, activities like choosing variable names and designing APIs require empathy for other developers. On an individual level, motivating ourselves and managing stress are also important professional skills.

Emotional intelligence is the key to developing all of these skills. This course will offer a set of practical techniques for developing emotional intelligence and provide hands-on experience using them, ultimately empowering participants to become more effective—and happier—developers.

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Better manage stress and avoid burnout
  • Use persuasive arguments to influence technical decisions
  • Understand coworkers’ confusing behavior in order to navigate conflicts more effectively
  • Develop leadership skills—whether that’s for leading people, projects, or just a rewarding career
  • Use personal retrospectives to facilitate continuous professional development
