New Researcher Developement: Leadership & Teamworking

Leadership & Teamworking

New Researcher Development Workshop

Leadership & Team-working Workshop 

Friday 19th May 2017

This half day workshop is designed specifically for postgraduates who are interested in further developing their skillset in order to enhance their employment prospects beyond graduation. When hiring new team members, the professional environment is now increasingly choosing individuals with transferable skills such as leadership, team-working, strong communication, negotiation and cooperative working. How an individual perceives their own working style, what their preferences are and how they interact with and manage others is a key part of this, and researchers can benefit from exploring their own personal method of working.

Learning outcomes

On completion of this course:

  • the leadership case study will help students to recognise and relate to specific leadership practices and employ these in their own work;
  • participants will be able to apply the knowledge from the workshop to the development of their own personal leadership style;
  • participants will be introduced to team roles and will be able to identify their own personal preferences based on the Belbin SPI evaluation;
  • each participant will emerge with a personal action plan for their own professional development;
  • participants will be able to draw on the leadership and teamwork experience they gain at the workshop and apply this knowledge to real world environments.

 Course structure

  • An introduction to different organisational cultures.
  • An introduction to leadership: what is leadership? The different types and styles of leadership, finding leadership opportunities, leadership case study (or studies).
  • Team roles – Belbin SPI overview and group exercise. (**optional)
  • Group exercise – solve a problem, requires participation from all group members, negotiation skills, cooperation and competition with another group.
  • Design a personal action plan for professional development using action plan cards.
