After the Warming up we go to the SPC Training. In 90-minute workshops you can improve your future skills.

Do you want to rethink leadership and collaboration and acquire digital tools for future-oriented leadership? Would you like to learn and try out how you can build up your networks despite virtual conferences? Would you like to get ideas on how to meet challenges with inner strength and calmness? Then train your skills in one of our three workshops.

Digital leadership – Culture change and innovation in virtual leadership (GER/ENG)

Due to the current turbulent times, many things are being questioned. This presents an opportunity to rethink leadership and collaboration and to test new things in the scientific landscape.

The workshop will discuss the following topics:

  •     What culture does virtual or hybrid team collaboration need - Principles of value-based leadership.
  •     What interactive formats are needed to generate co-creation and engagement?
  •     Which digital tools are suitable for future-oriented leadership?

In the short workshop, suggestions will be given and new things will also be tried out interactively.

Virtual networking: Reaching out through th the digital barrier (ENG)

The corona crisis has accelerated a trend that was already growing: Virtual conferences and Symposia. Whilst this is certainly good for the environment, we need new techniques to develop our networks and new skills and approaches are called for when communicating primarily on a digital basis.

We will examine:

  • Best practice for 21st Century Networking
  • What everyone is looking for
  • Making contact at virtual conferences and symposia
  • Introducing yourself to a networking target via e-mail
  • Managing your online profile
  • How do we replace the 'coffee-break' chat?

Be prepared to practice your networking and online communication techniques.

Resilience - Inner strength and balance in turbulent times (GER/ENG)

Resilience means mastering challenges through inner strength and calmness and emerging stronger from crises. The last year was particularly challenging for all of us and marked by uncertainty and change. In this workshop, we look back and into the future: What sources of strength could I draw on last year? What was particularly challenging? Which proven strategies can help me build resilience and regenerate? The workshop offers many suggestions for discovering personal solutions, reflecting on the personal handling of challenging situations, and space for questions and exchange.
