December 1, 2021 @ 9:00 am - December 31, 2021 @ 5:00 pm CET






This 2 day comprehensive course will introduce you to the core concepts of what makes an excellent and exceptional leader in the life sciences sector, specifically within the biopharma and pharma industries– and how to apply different approaches of leadership to managing your team to maximise results. You will become competent and familiar with a range of well-recognised leadership techniques that are relevant and currently in use across these industries. This course will also approach best-practice leadership forms that should be adopted to support, manage and coach team-members in a more agile and human-centric way.
