Career Skills Toolkit: Leadership, Management, and Team Building
In addition to subject-matter expertise, skills such as leadership, management, and team building are crucial for navigating increasingly complex jobs and research collaboration opportunities in neuroscience.
To help you develop these critical capabilities, SfN has created a toolkit that can be shared with an audience or used to improve your own leadership, management, and team building skills.
Explore the toolkit’s ready-to-use presentation for:
- Ways to assess current leadership, management, and team building skills
- Common leadership and management styles
- Characteristics of great managers and high-performing teams
- Key take-away messages for applying what you’ve learned
Then, review the background notes under each slide and this supplemental list of leadership resources to help you prepare for the presentation.
This presentation is the first part of SfN’s Career Skills Toolkit series, aimed at helping neuroscientists develop the nonscientific skills they need to excel. Explore the second part, Career Skills Toolkit: Designing Effective Science Presentations.
