Leadership at the Bench: Effective Communications for Technical Managers
Leaders, managers, PI’s and anyone responsible for leading and developing people in a technical field to achieve optimal results with limited resources while attaining high performance in teams of researchers and scientists.
This workshop will develop the importance of lab leadership to develop and grow bench workers: analysts, chemists, graduate and post-doctoral students. Lab directors and managers face a daily challenge of providing results while being conscious of the need to develop “rising stars” and raw talent in the laboratory. This workshop will develop techniques and present tips for having successful discussions, coaching sessions and mentoring, while providing practical communications techniques that make a manager’s life easier when dealing with complex issues. Gender specific issues will be addressed in a segment on mentoring.
