Leadership: The Stakes Are High and You Weren't Trained For This

This event is part of series:

July 21, 2022 - 9:00am to 12:00pm
On Campus
Dr. Jennifer M. Heemstra

If your future career goals include leading a research lab, then the quality of your leadership will have a major impact on the success and well-being of those who you lead. And you likely weren’t trained for this. No pressure, right?

The good news is that you can learn from the examples you’ve seen (both good and bad) and those who are experts in organizational leadership. And with some intentionality, you can create a culture and environment in your lab that fosters inclusion and supports the success of each member of your group.

This workshop will focus on practical approaches to leading yourself and others, with work products including plans to create your desired lab culture and a start to drafting lab policies for mental health or other important topics.
