PI Colloquium

Topic: Managing Research Teams

As member of the PI Colloquium for arts, humanities and social sciences, we would like to invite you to a new development programme for managers of research teams. The programme is called Leadership Essentials for Academics and is a three-hour programme suitable for PIs with responsibilities for the work, behaviour and development of others, for example their research group and support staff. It aims to help refresh and build skills and experience in this area and is also suitable for those aspiring to group leader positions. As well as clarifying key responsibilities, it focuses on critical areas that can be more difficult, such as giving and receiving feedback effectively and handling challenging situations. It incorporates tutor input, opportunities for discussion, reflection and sharing of good practice with others with similar responsibilities.

The programme runs on Friday 8 December, 9.30am to 12.30pm (followed by lunch to allow for further exchanges and networking) at 17 Mill Lane, Seminar Room B (first floor).

Spaces for the Leadership Essentials Programme are limited to 16. Please register your interest below. Please add if you would not like to attend the lunch afterwards. Should there be more interest than places we could arrange another session for later in the academic year.
