27-28 March 2018

 This event has now closed 

The challenge of science leadership (CSL) training course was custom-made for scientists, academics and professionals working in the environment sector. It was highly interactive and provided a source of practical skills and methods linking knowledge with action. The course enabled attendees to develop skills as a leader to support effective innovation, communication and collaboration. It provided a set of tools and interactive learning experiences with a focus on three key areas:

  • How to influence others? - Practical leadership tools and strategies for effective communication with people inside and outside your organisation.
  • Thinking creatively and strategically - Encouraging individuals and to think more creatively and strategically about key opportunities.
  • Enabling action - Tools for the development of effective strategies and networks around your own big ideas, opportunities and projects.

The CSL tool kit was used on attendees' own ideas and material during the course and could be put to work immediately after the course had finished. Previous course participants had really valued the time to think and gain greater clarity about their work and career.

There were 20 spaces available on the course which was delivered by Barefoot Thinking Company.

Overnight accommodation was provided on 27 March 2018.
