SAVE THE DATE: December 3, NICHD Leadership Course
Leadership and Management Course for NICHD Fellows
Wednesday, December 3, 9 am to 12 noon
David M. Dilts, PhD, MBA, CPA, CMA
Professor of Management at the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU)
Designed for early career individuals, this half-day, highly interactive course will introduce the essence of leadership and management and discuss how to be both a good manager and a good leader. One key type of management—project management—will be reviewed to show how learning this skill can greatly enhance project success.
The four learning objectives for the course are:
- Understanding the differences between leadership and management
- Understanding the need to lead and manage
- Knowing the difference between a team and a committee
- Identifying the key elements of managing projects in a team environment
We have 30 slots for fellows, and there will be time for you to ask one-on-one questions at the end of the course. Please register with Dr. Yvette Pittman at firstname.lastname@example.org
