Course Description

Professional leadership and teamwork are essential for scientific excellence. This seminar will introduce to you fundamental, theory-based principles of successful leadership and teamwork and will provide you with practical strategies. Furthermore it introduces to you research management as one career opportunity.

Central questions are:

  • How do I lead myself, my followers and my supervisor?
  • How do I improve my own communication, as well as our team communication?
  • How can we cooperate and resolve conflicts in our team productively?


In the first part of the workshop you will get insights into the basics of effective leadership in academia and also get an overview about relevant criteria for a career in research management. The seminar provides an overview of the main theories and models of professional leadership and we analyze your role as a leader (e.g., your interaction with student assistants or master students). In the second part you are getting presented the main theories and methods of communication and cooperation and also successful conflict resolution in teams.

Additionally, we develop important strategies for an effective cooperation with your supervisor. In both parts of the workshop, a combination of theoretical concepts and specific practical tools is provided. You will have the opportunity to exchange views on your individual experiences and your individual concerns in a moderated and practice-oriented discussion. Through role-playing, discussions and continuous cross-referencing between application and theory, you will gain helpful insights for improving your own behavior.
