This full-day workshop will focus on the critical interpersonal aspects of leading a group of scientists, integrating techniques for communication, feedback, conflict resolution and negotiation. It’s designed to complement the SLAM seminar series by providing highly interactive, participatory experiences. You’ll get hands-on practice with the relationship skills that are key to being a great group leader. You’ll be better equipped to work with challenging people and situations. Even more importantly, you’ll learn how to get the most out of your future experiences and use them to become a better leader and manager over time.
The material will be targeted to science and engineering graduate students, post-docs and visiting scholars who are pursuing future scientific leadership positions (including academia, industry, and governmental positions), but students in other disciplines will certainly benefit as well.
The workshop is ADA accessible–if you need special accommodation to fully participate in this workshop, please contact the workshop organizers with your name and contact information. The workshop will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with breakfast, lunch and light refreshments included in the cost of registration. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
