I’m a software engineer with 9+ years of experience. I have and am still a super hands-on person. However I realised I need to work on my communication (both speaking and writing) skills to be a good leader and lead a team.

Can someone recommend me some digital courses that have worked for you. Google search is giving way too many options

LinkedIn learning has fantastic courses.
Lead with Emotional intelligence.

All the very best.

If it's a matter of "soft skills" I'd consider charisma university.
But It depends on what you mean by communication skills.
What kind of feedback have you gotten before? Is it about clarity? Timing? Do people perceive you as rude? Or is it a matter of language itself?

Are you currently communicating effectively within your team? Or are you just lacking those leadership qualities that would help you transition into bigger roles?

It's better to narrow down your potential weaknesses and identify your goals to get some recommendations rather than just randomly enrolling into a course.

I am contracted employee in a company . I am assigned POC work .No design or document, just my manager sent a video of youtube saying that we have create similar feature . Since there is no proper documentation still manager is forcing to complete it by next week end. There are many hit and trials I am trying and giving him daily report of what I have tried and what worked and not worked. Still giving pressure.
He says "I don't bother you work for 1 hour or 10 hour per day". What should I do?

I’m a mid level engineer and my team is overwhelmed. There’s more work than we can complete in the timelines that leadership/product has committed to, which is causing leadership to override technical decisions seemingly to meet those deadlines. An example would be routing all live traffic to a feature which was not fully tested, instead of waiting until testing is complete or having that change be dormant and the feature enabled later. Has anyone dealt with this type of issue?

How do you feel about your job? Either your current position right now or your general role as a SWE - do you genuinely enjoy it and have a passion for it, tolerate it and collect the paycheck, or hate it? Does the industry you’re in have an impact on your answer - e.g. FAANG vs. fintech vs. ed tech? Personally after switching companies I’ve gone from hating to tolerance, but I feel like I’m never going to be excited about what I’m doing.
