MAINZ Workshop:

Leadership and Management Skills

Professional Development for Young Scientists (ProDYS)


Intensive 3 day workshop

Exercise based learning

16 participants maximum

May 05th – 7th 2014

09:00 a.m. until 5.00 p.m.


We believe that leadership skills, essential for today's challenges in scientific work, can be acquired and developed. Our goal is to enable scientists to productively deal with challenges related to interpersonal aspects of doing science.


In this practical course, designed specifically for Grad Students, you will learn how to:

  • Work in teams more productively
  • Establish and maintain collaboration
  • Negotiate better (e.g. authorship)
  • Deal with conflicts more professionally
  • Manage your boss relationship
  • Organise your work better by: setting goals, setting priorities, delegating
  • Design a competence portfolio of transferable skills for future career


What makes it important?
Why should be leadership relevant to grad students?

Leadership skills are typically connected to hierarchical positions, which is undeniably true. We deem, however, leadership skills to be a prerequisite for success in a multitude of professional situations such as attending/leading meetings, attending/leading projects, working in collaborations and not to forget the area of self-management. Mastering those areas is key to success.


This will be major topics during the Workshop

  • Setting the frame
  • Professional roles
  • Key communication skills
  • Dealing with different personalities
  • Setting good goals
  • Setting priorities
  • Solving conflicts
  • Negotiation skills
  • Designing a competence portfolio


How you will be working during the Workshop - Workshop Framework

Short theoretical inputs are followed by extensive exercises. Our goal is to increase the impact of the training by allowing you to immediately apply the concepts we teach in partner work, case studies or group discussion.


Who should attend?

This workshop adresses grad students of the MAINZ program.

This size of the group is strictly limited to 16 people.
