11: Professional development systems to sustain growth – Anthony Fasano, Engineering Management Institute

Share post:

Anthony Fasano is the founder of the Engineering Management Institute. Like many engineers, he aimed to become a high-level executive in my engineering organization.  When observing the leaders in my company, it is evident that they possessed skills in addition to their technical skills, namely excellent people management or ‘soft’ skills.  So, he set out to develop my ‘soft skills,’ a move that not only rapidly advanced my career, but led to me becoming an internal coach and trainer for my company, and ultimately inspired me to leave my engineering career behind to spend more time helping engineers become more effective managers and leaders.

Most AE consulting firms are too busy to focus on attracting, developing, and retaining talented professionals, making it hard to grow. Through his work at the EngineeringManagement Institute, Fasano utilizes a proven framework to help firms build professional development plans, programs, and tools that help them attract, build, maintain strong teams and grow sustainably. In addition to assisting firms in these areas, Fasano has written a bestselling book entitled engineers Your Own Success(byIEEE-Wiley Press), and under his stewardship, EMI has built a massive content platform including 5 active podcasts, 3 YouTube channels, and a popular blog dedicated to helping AE professionals become better managers and leaders.

Do you know how much you could be saving on your building structure costs?

We help developers save an average of $800,000 in structure costs per project.

How is that possible? Structure costs are not something structural engineers typically measure, making it impossible for them – and you – to understand the cost implications of each design decision.

Seemingly insignificant design decisions greatly impact the bottom line.
