Scientists often climb the leadership ladder through their scientific achievements and technical abilities. But few are prepared with the leadership skills necessary to develop and manage a best practice scientific team. In order to maximise performance in the laboratory and other settings, principal scientists must employ a number of skills including strong communication, emotional intelligence and authenticity.
Continuous funding cuts often cause tension and disengagement in the workplace. As a leader, it is imperative to motivate and engage your team in challenging circumstances, whilst addressing conflict simultaneously. In order to achieve an inspired and ambitious team, scientific leaders must create a work environment conducive to innovation and Creativity.
Through various communication avenues and tactical relationship building, scientists can drive productivity and positive change whilst creating a strong supportive network for their team. In this workshop, you will explore the leadership skills demanded of scientific professionals to increase team performance and fast-track research outcomes, in a real-time decision-making environment.
