Being a leader has its own challenges. It takes good communication skills, the ability to give and receive feedback, some courage and trust in the own strengths as well as empathy and motivation. All these characteristics can be learned and developed. This workshop is tailor-made for female academics who want to learn self-management and team-leading. In addition to general leadership topics, we will discuss gender-specific aspects.
