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

This seminar can be offered to a wide range of target groups (PhD students to PIs). However, there should be a focus in the target group, e.g. a course for young scientists without prior formal leadership experience or for more experienced ones, who have already experienced this situation.
This course can be combined with How to get research funding from industry to give the integrated 4-day programme Leading your own group.
