Empowered Technical Leaders

Lead With Confidence

  Enroll in Course

As a 23-year Air Force Physicist, JJ learned the hard way that being a great scientist does not automatically mean being a great leader: Leadership is a skill that must be learned, especially when leading interdisciplinary and multi-generational teams.

Empowered Technical Leaders Bootcamp is a 90-Day Bootcamp designed to help YOU get promoted, communicate effectively, and lead with confidence.

You’ll complete a DISC assessment that equips you to understand what your behavior says to others, and you’ll get world-class leadership, speaking, and coaching lessons from John Maxwell Team Executive Director, JJ Conway.


Have you ever wondered why there are so many unqualified people in leadership positions?

Have you ever wondered why there are so many underqualified people in leadership positions?

It’s not because they’re better or smarter than you (they’re not). They’re better at building key relationships and communicating value.

The most skillful and effective way to communicate the value of your work and advocate for your team with non-technical leaders who control resources is through stories that evoke emotion, not data.

You'll learn time-tested public and professional speaking tips from the John Maxwell Team that will immeiately increase your effeciveness both preofessianally and personally.


This bootcamp grew out of JJ Conway’s lesson for her technical military leaders called “Don't Lead Like a Physicist.”

JJ explains how technical leaders can get more done, free up their time, and increase their team’s respect of, and confidence in, them as leaders with the practice of coaching.

Coaching can be defined as helping an individual develop his or her ability to solve his or her own problems through the realization that he or she already possesses the answer. One of the greatest benefits to coaching is that, even if the employee develops what may not be the “best” answer through a coaching session, the process of thinking through coaching questions helps the employee become more self-sufficient. This is why coaching is a foundational practice of High Performing Teams. This introductory session teaches simple coaching strategies that can immediately be implemented in any organization.

Because the field of coaching is unregulated and has attracted a large number of coaches with little training who confuse coaching with mentoring, training, consulting, or even counseling behaviors, there is also a section on what to look for in implementing a more formal coaching program.
