Leadership training in the life sciences industry is more important and challenging than ever before. While the core needs and competencies of leadership development programs may be similar to those of the past, the changing workforce and market landscape require new capabilities and skills.

Watch the recording of this 30-minute Life Sciences Trainers & Educators Network webinar that CMR Institute hosted on May 16, 2023, to understand the importance of ongoing leadership development training to the success of life sciences organizations.

In our current environment, where people we lead are far more diverse, connecting with employees, dealing with constant changes, and engaging and motivating in remote and hybrid workplaces are some of the top challenges today’s leaders face.

From this conversation, Terry Herring, Chief Commercial Officer of Synergistix and Sharon Lustig, Senior Vice President, Client Solutions of CMR Institute, will help you learn the following:

  1. Things you need to do to enable leadership success
  2. Evolving competencies that should be a part of any core leadership program
  3. How to evolve your leadership training to adapt to the diverse needs and changing backgrounds of life sciences professionals
  4. Best practices and attributes of successful leadership development programs

You will see a range of new skills that need to be developed and go through the structure of an emerging leader program along with a sample learning pathway.
