Leadership in Research
Learn to lead research teams and projects with confidence. Leadership is an emergent characteristic that brings together different skills and competences to effectively navigate change and manage people and organizations. These skills and competences can be acquired and developed. In Academia, most team leaders have grown into leadership roles without a proper education or training focused on excelling in that role. This course aims to fill this gap and endow participants with the tools needed to advance their leadership skills.
