Workshop description:

On the first day, participants are guided through a series of steps to

  • identify which leadership strategies might best suit the needs of the team
  • understand the different roles that individuals might play within a team
  • enhance their communication skills
  • address those issues that might influence the quality of supervision.

On the second day, participants will join the workshop one at the time for a tailor-made session with the trainer. Within this context, participants will have the opportunity to discuss the individual challenges that they are facing and to employ the skills learnt on the first day. By investing one day working with their colleagues on the first day and engaging in a one-to-one session with the trainer on the second day, participants will gain new and invaluable tools to address the challenges that late-stage PhD students and early-stage post-doctoral researchers inevitably face.
