For the scientifically trained, moving up typically means moving out of the research environment and into new work environments that require stronger interpersonal skills for clear communication, collaboration, leadership and management. Managing Yourself before Managing Others is intended for academic scientists who are anticipating a transition or have already taken on new roles that require additional skillsets. This small group coaching session will provide actionable information to help you move toward a self-improvement goal that you feel is both important, and has proven difficult to achieve.
In this 4-hour session, participants will begin with their improvement goal and employ the Immunity to Change (ITC) method to build an understanding of why the goal is difficult and build their own path toward improvement. ITC was created by Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey, and is grounded in more than 30 years of research on adult development. It is the foundation for several books and two companies: Minds at Work, and Way to Grow, Inc. ITC is currently used worldwide by leaders, managers, and executive teams to support personal and professional growth. Read more about ITC from the Harvard Business Review:
