Every Principal Investigator wants to build and maintain a lab that attracts and retains outstanding staff members so that your science will be excellent. Juggling this endeavor with all else the PI must do – writing papers, teaching, mentoring, gaining and maintaining funding, creating collaborative and productive relationships with other PIs – can be challenging at best. This 1.5-day course will help you learn to manage people with a focus on the particular needs of running a lab. This new course will be led by Jennifer Crosby-Meurisse and Rachel Dresbeck, PhD, both from the Office of the Vice President for Research.
When: Friday, October 4, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday, October 5, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Location: Biomedical Research Building room 703
In this course you will learn:
- Strategies for approaching the role of “coach” in the lab – developing your leadership style
- Recruitment and retention strategies – Building (and maintaining) the best team for your lab
- Steps to take when coaching doesn’t work – Performance management in the lab
- Resources that are available to you to support you and your lab staff
