2.26 Leadership Skills for Women in Science

How to lead and motivate a team and plan efficiently

Did you know that your leadership style and the quality of team communication have a huge impact on motivation and performance? That team dynamics can either become an obstacle or lead to a success story. Performance and results depend on the quality of teamwork, on established communication and cooperation structures and on effective task management. And last but not least on your confidence (!) and ability to integrate and get every team member aboard. If you want to enhance your leadership and self-management skills and at the same time have fun with group exercises and role-playing games, this workshop is for you!
You will reflect on your own role and strengths and learn how to implement effective tools right
from the beginning in order to save you from common pitfalls. The workshop provides you with basic aspects of team roles, phases, useful meeting structures and task management elements. Here you will explore powerful communication tools such as the art of listening, creative pro- blem solving and implementing a constructive feedback culture. Furthermore we will discuss ele- ments of motivating leadership and how to build trust and encourage teams towards the realization of goals.
These new-found leadership skills will help you motivate and inspire a team, leverage teamwork
i.e., initiate and maintain a positive team spirit and successful collaboration.
