Taking the lead for PhD candidates

Dauer: 2 Tage // Sprache: englisch // Auch als Online-Workshop verfügbar
Themenfeld: Führung & Teamentwicklung // Zielgruppe: Doktorand:innen

“Leading a team of employees… Is this something I would like to do?”

As a PhD candidate, the opportunities to become responsible for other members of staff are rather slim. During later phases of career development however, leadership skills are often on the list of job requirements. This workshop will give you an overview of the basic elements and tools of successful leadership. At the same time, interactive exercises will give you the chance to not only gather but also reflect upon initial leadership experiences.

Supervising PhD candidates

expertise and leadership

1-2 Tage  |  englisch  |  Auch als Online-Workshop verfügbar
Prof. Dr. Anja Frohnen

Disappointment, misunderstandings, conflicting roles… Even though the working relationship between supervisor and PhD candidate seems to be fairly straightforward, there can be pitfalls along the way. A supervisor must combine discussing issues on an expert level with the role of technical supervisor, which comes with different expectations and demands. This role is often hard to define, because it does not entail disciplinary responsibility. The workshop will show you how to avoid becoming caught between different roles and position yourself in the right way vis-à-vis all actors in your working environment. To this end, we will look at typical conflict scenarios and identify adequate communication strategies.
