Creative individuals often work on innovative and cutting-edge projects, which require them to think outside the box and challenge the status quo. They tend to have different perspectives on problem-solving and may be more willing to take risks and explore unconventional ideas.
Understanding and appreciating their unique skills and perspectives is essential while providing them with the necessary resources and support to succeed.
The workshop will focus on the pragmatics of managing creative people and building innovative organizations. It does not focus on technical management but rather on the range of skills a researcher or technical staff member needs to be both successful and fulfilled.
These include building relationships, addressing the common challenges of managing independent and creative staff, hiring for success in the organizational context, engaging people with widely varying motivations, approaches to mentoring, and helping people to manage their career paths.
