HGS-HIRe & Helmoltz Soft Skills Training - Basic Course II: Leading Teams in a Research Environment (B2 online)

The second course in the structered HGS-HIRe series of transferable skills training will build on the key aspects of the first course and will focus more on leadership and the challenges of leading teams, particularly those in the research environment. This advanced course will focus on three aspects: Leading Self, Leading Others and Leading Projects. Activities will be built around a range of interactions working in different groups and teams. The course will also revisit and refine aspects of presentation skills covered in the program of the first (beginners) course.
