Leadership for Innovative Team Science (LITeS)

Leadership for Innovative Team Science (LITeS) is a year-long program designed for senior and mid-career faculty and academic administrators who aspire to improve their management and leadership skills. Sponsored by the Education, Training and Career Development (ETCD) Core of the CCTSI, this program provides professional and executive training tailored to the needs of academics in the biomedical, clinical, and health sciences. An important goal of the program is to create and sustain at Anschutz and UCD a strong network of colleagues who, in addition to their own work, will train the next generation of clinical and translational scientists

Meetings for the 2014-15 cohort will take place quarterly from 8AM-4PM on the following dates: October 9 & 10, 2014: December 11 & 12, 2014; February 12 & 13, 2015; April 16 & 17, 2015. LITeS participants must commit to attend all sessions. Among this year’s planned seminar topics are: leadership and management styles, building effective teams, conflict management and dealing with difficult people, mentoring, coaching and thriving in our multi-generational workplace. The workshops are highly interactive and small group projects will be a cornerstone. Executive coaching will be available on a limited basis to address your individual leadership challenges.
