5. A Day of Lab Dynamics

Essential Skills for Science Managers and Leaders

Full day workshop

This is a highly interactive two-part day long workshop based upon Dr Cohen’s popular book “Lab Dynamics: Management and Leadership Skills for Scientists.” The morning session consists of a condensed version of  our full day Workshop 1,  "Difficult conversations in the research workplace: Fundamentals of negotiation" and the afternoon session is either Workshop 2,  "Leading scientific team and project meetings" or Workshop 3, "Managing your science team:Setting goals, giving feedback and evaluating scientists." This is not a generic workshop – it is specifically focused on interactions which scientists have every day — discussing data, negotiating budgets or project plans, receiving and giving scientific criticism and dealing with interpersonal conflicts in the lab.
