“Closing Keynote: What Humans Need at Work“ - Lara Hogan, Coach and Trainer
Our core needs at work are exactly that: needs that must be met in order for us to feel safe and secure. That means our work as managers is incredibly important: to help our teammates (and ourselves) navigate surprising emotions, work through challenges and change, and develop a healthier and more stable state for our team.
Lara is an author, public speaker, and coach for managers and leaders across the tech industry. As a founder of Wherewithall, Lara and her team run workshops, roundtables, and trainings on core management skills like delivering great feedback and setting clear expectations. Before Wherewithall, Lara spent a decade growing emerging leaders as the VP of Engineering at Kickstarter and an Engineering Director at Etsy. She champions management as a practice, building fast websites, and celebrating your achievements with donuts (and sometimes sushi). Her latest book, Resilient Management, is here to help those who find themselves responsible for supporting a team of people.
Calibrate was a conference for new engineering leaders hosted by seasoned engineering leaders. Organized and hosted by Sharethrough, it was conducted yearly in September, from 2015-2019 in San Francisco, California.
