This full-day workshop will focus on the critical interpersonal aspects of leading a group of scientists, integrating techniques for communication, feedback, conflict resolution, and negotiation. It’s designed to complement the SLAM seminar series by providing highly interactive, participatory experiences. You’ll get hands-on practice with the relationship skills that are key to being a great group leader. You’ll be better equipped to work with challenging people and situations. Even more importantly, you’ll learn how to get the most out of your future experiences and use them to become a better leader and manager over time.
