Google’s Secrets to Becoming a Great Manager

Lori Krein, Training Specialist at Google   

When: Thursday, March 3rd 2016 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PST)

Venue: AMD Commons Building

In 2002, Google ran an uncontrolled “experiment” by simply getting rid of all managers. It didn’t go well. So in 2008 a team of researchers set out to prove what some at Google suspected – that managers don’t matter. But the team discovered quite the opposite. Managers matter a lot.

The research effort, called Project Oxygen, refocused to figure out exactly what makes for a great manager at Google. The guiding question shifted from “Do managers matter?” to “What if every Googler had an awesome manager?” Project Oxygen identified a set of common behaviors among the best managers and those behaviors now guide our management development program.

Lori will review the highlights of this program, which helps managers get better at coaching, empowering teams, managing team energy, staying results-oriented, communicating, developing teams, and sharing a vision.

Lori Krein is currently a Training Specialist at Google where she co-facilitates their New Manager Training program. Lori received her Masters in Organization Development from Johns Hopkins University, and has facilitated and designed technical and management training programs for PG&E, AT&T, Lam Research, VolunteerSpot.com, and many other companies over the past 20 years.  Lori, who grew up in NJ, lives in Campbell.
