Academic Leadership for Women: Module II
When: Fri, 03.09.2021 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM
Module II - The immediate work environment: Leading in academia - The art of supervising others and delegating tasks
Delegation is central to effectively leading others, whether upward (i.e. leading your boss), laterally (i.e. leading your peers/colleagues) and downward (i.e. leading subordinates). This workshop is designed to be relevant to scientists who need to delegate to others, whether their supervisor, their colleagues or to the people who work for them. A basic premise of this workshop is that, beyond common preconceptions, a broad array of skills is needed to lead others, no matter in what direction, effectively.
This workshop is designed in two parts:
Part I: Self-assessment and online short course to introduce the topics – to be completed on your own time, prior to the live workshop
Part II: Live workshop (online or in person on 3 September 2021) – focus on application of the topics introduced in the selfassessment and online course
• Develop a personal leadership, supervisory style
• Learn how to influence others (without authority)
• Learn how to delegate tasks to others
Dr. Brooke A. Gazdag is an Assistant Professor at the University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam Business School. After completing her PhD in Organizational Behavior and Management at the State University of New York at Buffalo, she took a position as Post Doc at the Technical University of Munich as part of a project on the “Selection and Evaluation of Leaders in Academia and Industry.” Afterwards she worked at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich in the Munich School of Business until 2020. Her research and training interests center around leadership, negotiations and diversity and the intersection of these three topics. In the last year, Dr. Gazdag has fully embraced the rapid digitization of the working world and adapted not only her own leadership and training to the context, but also seeks to help others do the same.
Note: A few weeks before the workshop, smaller tasks will be sent via e-mail, which the participants should work on individually and send back to the trainer. These serve as targeted preparation for the workshop and as an introduction to the topic.
