Transferable Skills Seminar – Step Up to Leadership

Event | June 14, 2017

Finished Jun 14 2017

This seminar is for international researchers, and will be conducted in English. It is run by Dale Carnegie Training Japan.

Teamwork is an integral part of your research activities regardless of the scale of your project. Postdoc and PhD researchers are the senior members in your lab and that would put you in a leadership position one way or another. If you know the basics of “how to be a leader,” you can practice and brush up your leadership skills while conducting your research activities in your team. Even if you are an independent contributor or stand-alone player, knowing the fundamentals of leadership will make you aware of how to be a good team-player. Dale Carnegie Training has been giving management training for executives of major corporations around the world for more than 100 years. Don’t miss this golden opportunity for you to step up to leadership.

Being a senior in your lab or conducting a research project involves multiple members, so you may realize that you are in a leadership position in the organization. If you want to make such an opportunity a practice ground for your future career, this seminar will give you the basics to be a leader. You will learn the basics of leadership like delegation, time management, and performance appraisal techniques. You’ll also collaborate with others in similar roles, gaining insights into the more advanced aspects of leadership so you can better inspire and motivate your team.

Open Innovation is a new trend in the industry that involves many team members and partners to accomplish research objectives. Irrespective of the scale or objective of the team, or even if you are conducting the research by yourself, learning about leadership is beneficial because it deals with:

  • Vision setting as a common goal
  • Task breakdown and delegation
  • Time management of multiple tasks and individuals
  • Conflict management
  • PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Action) cycle
  • Performance appraisal and moral building
  • Most importantly, self management as a leader
