Clinical investigators are challenged to balance many tensions in their work, including how to best meet the institutional requirements for a clinic while building a research practice, and the most effective way to fundraise for the future while effectively accomplishing the work of today. This four-day program offers clinical investigators and their administrative team leaders a chance to build a foundation of research-tested management and leadership skills that can be applied to the business side of science.
Led by Kellogg faculty in an interactive classroom setting, participants will learn practical and effective approaches to topics including organizational culture, strategic time management, finance, fundraising and influence strategies. Equipped with new tools and frameworks, you’ll leave with a better sense for how to leverage your personal leadership strengths to build collaborative work teams and navigate competing demands in your work.
