Industry Program – Leading & Managing: The People Side of Technology & Manufacturing Teams in Bioscience

Posted: 19 October 2021
Program: 3 + 31 March 2022

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.

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


In this workshop participants will gain a solid experience-based foundation in leading & managing technical and scientific staff. The workshop provides highly practical tools, techniques and tips that can be immediately applied in the workplace on return.  It emphasises learning by doing and includes group problem solving and skills development elements. Participants will have the opportunity to share their leadership experiences and challenges with peers from industry and to receive feedback and guidance.
