Postdoc Academy Workshop: Team Dynamics in Action

Tue 23 Jul 2024


Because research is a collaborative endeavour, conducted within and across groups, team dynamics can have a big impact on your research output.

In order to achieve your own goals, it can be helpful to understand what factors contribute to the behaviour of a group of colleagues, how you can best navigate these dynamics, and which elements of team dynamics are key to successfully leading a research group. This is your chance to learn and practice!

In this highly interactive workshop, you will experience different aspects of team dynamics through a series of situation-based activities. Each activity will be followed by reflection and discussion so that you can make connections with your own professional experience.

This workshop will give you the opportunity to:

  • understand the diversity of perspectives and why groups behave they way they do
  • identify points of convergence and divergence between your own and others’ interest
  • be a better team player
  • become a better team leader

We recommend also attending our workshop on group dynamics and effective teams as this session will provide a great opportunity to practice what you have learned there.
