Research Team Leadership is a two-day programme designed to develop an individual's skills as a research team leader, at a time when they may be new to leadership.
Over the two-day programme, participants will take part in a series of interactive and practical sessions aimed at developing their team leadership skills. Participants will look at different approaches to:
- Leadership in a research context;
- Team building;
- Running effective team meetings; and
- Resolving conflicts, vision and action planning.
In this programme you will consider different ways to address and resolve the sometimes conflicting demands of research, teaching and administration. The programme allows you to reflect upon your personal vision for your research career in terms of the role of a Research Team Leader. You will review what it means to take on a team leadership role and practice relevant skills such as listening. By the end of the programme you will have considered and prepared an action plan that will enable you to implement your learning to enhance research activity.
