Much of the training EMs should consider is already part of our onboarding. As time progresses, we may add additional things, so a periodic review of development department, people manager, and becoming a gitlab manager onboarding activities for new actions is valuable.
Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging is one of GitLab's 6 values. It's what we believe distinguishes us from other companies. Engineering Managers should take DIB Training which reviews key sections of our handbook and a learning path. We all need to work on making sure we are inclusive as we work together to build some really great things.
Besides normal onboarding training with various tools and processes. Engineering Managers should also take the Iteration Training. Engineering Managers can start the process of training by following the steps in this template. Iteration is a important value of GitLab and not easily learned. Working with other Engineering Managers and Product Managers during this exercise is encouraged to further enhance the experience.
