As young scientists you often take on first leadership tasks after graduating with a PhD or already supervise students and/or non-academic staff during your doctoral phase. In order to successfully manage initial leadership situations and at the same time advance your own doctorate, solid knowledge of central leadership instruments and practical experience are helpful to fulfil the tasks and to shape your new role.The online workshop "Leadership Starter Kit" will support you in mastering these first leadership steps. You will learn and experience in which areas your own leadership skills are already developed, and you will deepen your skills and knowledge in areas in which you have little or no experience.The techniques introduced in this workshop can be used in a variety of contexts ranging from leading a team on a day-to-day basis to enhancing the team’s long-term productivity. Particular emphasis is placed upon enabling prospective leaders to become aware of key dynamics within a team and to adjust leadership strategies accordingly. Seminar contents:• Leadership practice: Reflection on previous experience - Leadership tasks / tools - Psychology of leadership • Successful leadership: Communication and conflict resolution - Creating incentives & motivation - Conducting talks - Dealing with conflictive issues• Delegation, assignment, supervision: - Setting goals - Evaluate and control by means of transparent criteria.Please note: Our training programme is designed for the interaction of the participants. Comparable to classroom seminars, we ask you to turn on your camera during online events for an exchange at eye level.
