GerBI-GMB Core Facility Leadership and Management Course, 27-30 June 2022, Duesseldorf, Germany

Concept

We are pleased to announce the 2022 Core Facility Leadership and Management Course by GerBI-GMB and hfp consulting. The concept of core facilities, central hubs for demanding technical and analytics services, is rapidly changing how science is carried out at many research institutions. Core facility managers, often academically trained scientists, find themselves in a variety of different roles that demand a broad set of skills they traditionally haven’t been taught in their career. Managing budgets, structuring the facility to work most productively, recruiting the right people, negotiating with partners, clients and vendors, dealing with hierarchy and addressing role conflicts are some of the challenges core facility managers typically face. GerBI-GMB in collaboration with hfp consulting, a group specialised in supporting scientists to improve their leadership and management skills, have developed an intense, interactive and highly specialised workshop that addresses these challenges. For more details, please have a look at this 2014 event report, published in Imaging & Microscopy.

Course description

In this practical course, designed specifically for core facility managers in the life sciences, you will learn how to:

  • Balance your different roles
  • Build a productive team culture
  • Deal with conflicts constructively
  • Manage your time better
  • Delegate tasks more effectively
  • Deal with different personalities in the team
  • Position your facility in your organisation strategically
  • Negotiate more effectively
  • Hire the right people
  • Manage your budget

We approach these topics practically. Short theoretical inputs are followed by extensive exercises. Our goal is to increase the impact of the training by immediately applying the concepts we teach in partner exercises, case studies, and simulations during the workshop. The course language is English.
