Event Details

Probationers: Choice Session for those on a Research and Teaching contract (priority will be offered to probationers, if the session proves very popular).
Highly recommended for: Anyone managing researchers or ready to start managing researchers
Of interest to: Researchers who support students and informally supervise

As you gain independence in your research and a reputation in your field, you will find yourself increasingly required to manage or supervise research staff and students, as well as taking various kinds of responsibility (formal or informal) for colleagues and collaborators, who may be in different universities and countries. How do you position yourself in this context? And how do you work to enable others to develop and do their best work?

This interactive workshop will provide a toolkit of skills, techniques, and support. It focuses on some of the crucial behaviours required for managing and leading people in challenging situations.

 Intended learning outcomes

 After this online workshop you will have:

  • explored the critical areas that influence colleagues and collaborators
  • focused on developing an understanding of motivation and how to respond to differing needs
  • learnt strategies for dealing with effective feedback and delegation

Please note: for those not on probation, a record of attendance will be uploaded to iTrent for staff development purposes. Please indicate in the ‘Specific Requirements’ box when booking if you do NOT wish for your attendance to be uploaded to iTrent.
