The progression from being an individual scientist or technician to leading & managing a team can be for many a challenging transition.

Recruiting high performers, inspiring, and motivating staff, maintaining performance levels, establishing a culture of creativity & innovation, keeping people engaged and highly productive, building team collaborations and even running effective meetings all rise in importance. You need to think more strategically, to build strong relationships outside your unit with internal stakeholders and customers. You need to learn new skills in coaching staff, giving feedback, handling conflict, managing new competing demands on time, communicating to different audiences, and influencing others.

Program design

  • The program is structured as 2 x one day modules with 4-6 weeks in between to enable application of learning.
  • Group size is kept small allowing individual attention.
  • Additional individual coaching sessions are also available by request.
  • We have found that small groups of attendees from the same organisation report benefits of being able to support one another on return. The program can also be run in-house by request.
