Description

Leadership has changed- in parallel with our work environments. Flatter hierarchies, project work in a matrix structure and more rapid changes in assignments, locations and colleagues are but some of the new challenges we scientists face. Interpersonal skills become ever more critical when leading a team or a project: for motivation, conflict resolution or work delegation.

 

In this course you´ll learn about:

 

Situational leadership

  • Can we find a leadership style that addresses the heterogeneity of our team?
  • Who to delegate to in your diverse team and how?
  • Staff development

 

Hire for quality! Staff selection

  • How to get the best team and not just clones of yourself
  • Overcoming biases in staff selection and other work processes

 

Feedback and other one-on-ones

  • Giving and receiving critical feedback
  • Feedback in the international context: how (in-) direct can I be?

 

Conflict management

  • Prevent conflicts by your lab set-up: communication and practicalities
  • Deescalate and resolve conflicts by mediation and through fair negotiations
  • Escalate professionally if necessary

All participants receive a script of the course in PDF format for offline and future use so that they can work through the material offline as well as after the course.
