10. Our Most Popular Two-Day Workshop Sequences

We offer the following two day workshop sequences, both of which provide a comprehensive "crash course" in management skills for scientists.

Sequence 1

This two-day management and leadership sequence consists of our three most popular workshop offerings.

Day 1 : Difficult Conversations in the Research Workplace: Fundamentals of Negotiation. (Full-day version of Workshop 1). 

Day 2 Morning: Leading Scientific Team and Project Meetings (Workshop 2)

Day 2 Afternoon: Managing Your Science Team: Setting Goals, Giving Feedback and Evaluating Scientists (Workshop 3). 

This sequence is ideal for organizations seeking to bring their scientists "up to speed" in the core skills associated with successful interactions, collaborations and team membership and management. The two workshop days can be done in succession or separated by weeks or months. 

 

Sequence 2

Starting in the Spring of 2017 we are introducing a new two day sequence that covers the most important elements of running a research lab.  The sequence is:

Day 1 Morning: Difficult Conversations in the Research Workplace: Fundamentals of Negotiation (half-day version of Workshop 1). 

Day 1 Afternoon: Leading Scientific Team and Project Meetings (Workshop 2).

Day 2 Morning: Hiring and Retaining Your Science Team (Workshop 9).

Day 2 Afternoon: Managing Your Science Team: Setting Goals, Giving Feedback and Evaluating Scientists (Workshop 3).

This workshop sequence provides a comprehensive introduction to the essential tools needed to manage a research lab. The workshops can be customized to reflect a basic research (or academic) environment, or an applied (or pharma, biotech, private sector) environment.   This two day series can be offered as two  days in a row or with a gap of days or weeks in between.
