If you want to be an inclusive leader, you need to know yourself. What are your qualities, your pitfalls, your habitual behaviour, the behaviour you would like to develop? What skills are you lacking, which communicative behaviour has your preference? Only then can you value what another has to bring, how other people complement you, and how you need others to reach sustainable results. Forming an inclusive team is a prerequisite for having all the skills, opinions and qualities you need for your research. It is not easy, as we often prefer people who are like ourselves, people we easily communicate with. But a team of clones, will fail to bring you anywhere!
During this interactive workshop you will discuss these issues from a personal perspective and reflect on the leader you want to be.
