Leadership and Management Skills SL

leadership and management skills for senior leaders

Being the head of a department or a research institute – apart from the leader of a research group – is challenging, not only because of the number of organisational roles that a single person needs to joggle with but also because of the constant pressure associated with fulfilling all those jobs. In an interactive style we will discuss about these and other challenges and find common solutions.

Follow up course

We strongly believe that professional and personal growth needs continuous effort. We know from experience we’ve had with numerous workshop groups that impact and sustainability are highly increased if the participants are exposed to a follow up training. This is why we offer this advanced course to group leaders who attended one of our previous LMSC workshop. Participants will get together to further extend their knowledge with new subjects and work on specific case studies.
