Whether you are creating a team from the ground up, revamping a team through a new initiative, or looking for a team to join, our time together will provide you with the tools to be successful. Take away practical solutions and helpful hints about leadership, communication, and team management from leading scientists in industry, academia, government, field work, and research. The workshop will be divided into three main sections, followed by a panel discussion moderated by the presenter. We invite scientists of all experience levels to join what will be an interesting and useful conversation.
