Event Details

For grad students and postdocs in any stage of your academic career, understanding your own perceptions of leadership can impact how you teach, how you work within departments, how you mentor, and more. In this workshop, we will explore implicit leadership theories (ILT), the cognitive structures that people use to evaluate leadership characteristics and behaviors in others. Understanding your own ILTs can help you unpack your own experiences around leadership, bring clarity to the formal and informal ways others may look to you as a leader, and shape how your interact with others: your students, your peers, your PIs, and more.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
*Recognize how others (your mentees, your undergrad students) may view you as leaders and authority figures
*Explore personal ILTs to clarify your beliefs about leadership and how those beliefs impact how you might act in your various roles (teacher, TA, mentor)
*Create your own personal leadership philosophy to articulate your own expectations for yourself as a leader

This event is hosted by the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL) and is designed for graduate students and faculty mentors.
