“Motivating aspiring academics? Is that really necessary?”

Postdocs are often asked to supervise PhD candidates and graduates. In this role it is imperative to be aware of and be able to deal with your own expectations and those of others – a skill which sometimes needs to be acquired first. The workshop teaches leadership tools for situations from the academic and non-academic fields on a general basis and in the context of individual experiences. These help to create a picture of the principal leadership elements and an understanding of how to use them.

expertise and leadership

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.
