Introduction to Leadership (JRs only)
This leadership course is intended for junior researchers who have recently taken on leadership tasks - with or without formal leadership responsibilities, for example in a new research group or as PI on a project.
Leadership skills are required in order to establish and ensure well-functioning research groups and project teams. This interactive course introduces the participants to essential leadership elements. The specific course objectives are:
- To ensure that junior researchers are aware of their personal identity as leaders versus their identity as experts within a specific field
- To learn about and practice different types of communication
- To support their career development as leaders in either academia or in business and industry
Instructor(s):The course instructors are Michael Martini and Louise Tornøe Johnsen, Leadership Development Consultants at Development and Work Environment, AU HR, as well as a guest instructor.
