Info about event

AU Career PhD & JR

The course is only for Postdocs and Assistant Professors.

When and where: The course consists of two sessions:

About: While leading others is often part of advancing our career, whether inside or outside of academia, often those in leadership positions do not receive training in how to lead. This two-day, practical, pragmatic and participatory course introduces participants to four essential ‘elements’ of leadership. In the process of doing so, it explores what leadership is and offers practical tools and strategies to help you begin to lead others more effectively.
