Chip has been coaching and mentoring younger architects, engineers and other professionals for decades. From this background he has collected and assembled a process that he uses for personal development. This process identifies the career stage of the professional, identifies their goals and expectations, and provides a list of skills and values that are important at this and future career stages. This provides valuable insight for coaching and mentoring as well as self-development.
Chip has put this together in a book he named Learning Leadership. This book guides the professional through the common stages of development and identifies the perspectives and skill sets that can be valuable at each of these career stages. The book also identifies high-level business perspectives and the value and means of coaching skills and behaviors.
