In this workshop you will train how to effectively communicate with colleagues and supervisors as well as how to prevent and manage conflicts.
We begin by increasing our level of empathy through analyzing the different layers of communication and separating the distinct sides of a message. Understanding conflicts, often originated in miscommunication, can be achieved through changing perspectives. Using roleplays, we sensitize ourselves for possible sources of conflicts. You will learn about strategies to prevent conflicts and further how to minimize their negative outcome if they occur. Effective communication can be considered as the key leadership skill, and we interactively train communication in both top-down as well as bottom-up leadership scenarios. Here, special emphasis is also put on giving and receiving feedback. As part of conflict resolution strategies, you will learn using empathy strategically and we will further practice negotiation techniques, such as the Harvard principles. The work ethics in science and academia are given by Good Scientific Practice. You will learn about the essential – and in Germany also compulsory – DFG rules for Good Scientific Practice. Finally, we train applying these to resolve conflicts via example study cases.
This workshop is highly interactive and builds on experience-based learning: we use short roleplays, group discussions and study cases.
