Professional engineer Stu Walesh wants to release the leader within you. A multidimensional and honored career has enabled him to do just that. Drawing on experience from his work in the public, private, and academic sectors, and from tenures as a project manager, department head, marketer, legal expert, professor, and college engineering dean, Stu has always called on engineers to team their technical side with the skills for leadership success. Stu is currently active as an independent consultant providing leadership, management, engineering, education/training, and marketing services. Stu’s latest book, Introduction to Creativity and Innovation for Engineers, argues for a “whole-brain” approach to the study of engineering.
