Leadership in Scientific Practice Consulting, Coaching, Challenging This course engages Associate and Full Professors at the University of St.Gallen in a dialogue on leadership in scientific practice. The full-day workshop includes inputs on the state of the art in organizational psychology and provides ample space for an intense exchange of experience among participants. Being responsible for and guiding scientists is triggering quite a variety of capabilities and competences, both on a strategical as well as on operational level. We focus on three core leadership activities specifically relevant in science: consulting, coaching, and challenging. With this focus, the course will provide an overview of a series of methodologies and tools. The full-day course will be complemented by a half-day follow-up session (about three months after the one-day course) which will provide opportunities to reflect on experiences made when applying learnings from the seminar.
