Equality at the CRC

Have you ever struggled with a team member, who doesn’t seem motivated? Do you sometimes wonder how to lead without formal authority? Or do you feel "stuck in the middle" between your boss and the team you are leading as a postdoc?

Leading teams in the academic context is a challenging task. It can be inspiring and stressful at times. Some insights into communication and leadership skills can make a difference, for you personally and for your team.

This one and a half day training was designed to support those in prospective leadership positions with some insights and helpful leadership approaches to expand their skill set and gain suggestions for concrete situations at hand. Some of the topics that will be covered are:

  • Understanding structural aspects of leading from a "sandwich" position
  • Defining and clarifying one’s role and mandate as well as expectations
  • Leadership styles and Situational Leadership
  • Understanding social systems and team-development
  • Building a network and support system
  • Handling tricky situations from real life examples

The training will consist of short inputs, lots of practical exercises and experience sharing. We strongly recommend that participants come prepared with some real life situations and questions that will serve as a basis for practice and discussions.

Participation in both days is required.
