HMS is looking for faculty who have been mentoring for 3+ years who can commit to attending the entire 7 sessions (or a minimum of 5 sessions). Participation in this program would lead to HMS Certification of Leadership in Mentoring. If interested please contact Dr. Ellen McCarthy, Assistant Dean for Development and Diversity, at Ellen_McCarthy@hms.harvard.edu.

3. Managing Yourself Before Managing Others-
    Sponsored by the B-BIC Skills Development Center

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, 4-hour 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.

Facilitator: Cheryl Vaughan PhD, EdM, Managing Director, Skills Development Center

Date: Thursday, November 2, 2017
Time: 2:00 to 6:00 pm
Location: MGH Main Campus, details provided upon registration
