Motivating Scientists: Best Practices in Leading People

60 Minute On-Demand Webinar. Available in CD, MP3 or PDF Transcript

Getting the most out of your staff is critical to your research.

Developing, and maintaining, a high level of motivation in your lab is critical to your research success. Don't let laziness, overwhelming egos, and troublesome scientists get in the way. Learn how to lead with confidence and get the most out of your research project.

You are the leader. It is time for more effective leadership!

Your lab will, at some point, get thrown into turmoil. Personality conflicts will undermine teamwork, discrimination will isolate group members, and the creativity essential to great work will vanish. Effective leadership will make your research a success. Are you prepared?

Walk away with evidence-based best practices.

We've teamed up with author Alice Sapienza to give you first-hand case studies and best practices from the lab. Alice has written extensively on the topic and knows exactly the frustration you're experiencing, and will offer proven methods to motivate your scientists.
