Collaboration & Communication Skills for Managers

Designed for new and seasoned managers working in an aspect of the pharmaceutical sciences, sessions will cover:

The art and science of managing up
Relationship building with your management peers
“Reading” the members of your team in order to better handle difficult conversations
Interview skills for mid-career job changes
Communicating with search firms
Leading in a global organization today and tomorrow

Expect lively sessions where you’ll interact with the speaker and others while exploring the issues that affect you at work. Select speakers will also offer intimate conversations following their presentations, where you can ask questions and get advice on the challenges you are facing at work.
