BIST is organising a new edition of its programme Leadership in Action, designed by using VITAE’s framework, and thinking in our postdoctoral researchers. It will offer you the opportunity to focus on developing skills for successful self-management and development to progress in your professional career. You will learn to develop clear objectives, and plan and manage your time and your resources to be efficient. The importance of communicate effectively, manage your tasks and deciding witch type of leader you want to be will also be covered. These are interactive and practical workshops, so come prepared with your leadership challenges, your professional ambitions and a willingness to experiment.

The course is offered to postdoctoral researchers currently working at BIST research centres (CRG, IBEC, ICFO, ICIQ, ICN2, IFAE, IRB Barcelona), but is also open to external postdoctoral community.
