Seminars & Workshops
Managing Yourself Before Managing Others

Is your team working together effectively?

The success of all organizations depends upon how well members work. As research becomes more interdisciplinary, skills that promote collaboration are at a premium; but few of us have the time or opportunity to develop the skills necessary for successful teamwork, such as:

  • Delegation
  • Collaboration
  • Speaking clearly/succinctly
  • Engaging in conflict constructively
  • Listening
  • Prioritizing work
  • Creating focus
  • Building relationships

Take a break from your busy schedule to reflect on your own challenges with respect to working on a team. Give yourself the time to improve your non-technical skills and gain actionable information for making real change. Join Tufts CTSI for Managing Yourself Before Managing Others, a half-day workshop that will provide you with a self-assessment tool and peer feedback on an adaptive skill you hope to acquire or further develop.

Led by Cheryl D. Vaughan, PhD, EdM, Managing Director of Boston Biomedical Innovation Center (B-BIC) Skills Development Center, this workshop is customized to support the development of team science skills at Tufts CTSI and its partners. It was offered previousl¬y at the Science of Team Science (SciTS) Conference.

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Compare biological immunity to behavioral immunity
  • Describe the Immunity to Change (ITC) method and how it works
  • Identify factors that hinder progress toward a self-improvement goal
  • Consider the challenges faced by teams trying to make meaningful change

Open to all faculty (academic or physician scientists) and their senior staff.
Limited to 20 participants. Participants must be able to attend the entire session.
