Challenge of Science Leadership
Barefoot Thinking Group
The “Challenge of Science Leadership” course is instructed as an intensive workshop over three consecutive full days. The curriculum was designed by the UK-based Barefoot Thinking Group and focuses on effective tools and techniques that early career science professionals can employ to enhance individual effectiveness as leaders within their diverse collaborative and individual professional endeavors.
The highly interactive course draws on individual's unique experiences to unlock effective tactics for: thinking strategically (from engaging different thinking styles, to creative thinking around around scoping, scoping, analyzing, visioning, and innovating); influencing behavior (from leadership styles and giving feedback); and enabling action (from time tactics to visualizing networks, to action planning around big ideas).
