Improving Influence and Increasing Impact: Essential Skills for Industry Statisticians
Slough , UK
Andy Grieve, Gemma Hodgson, Margaret Jones (& external speaker tbc)
The landscape is changing across the pharma industry and as statisticians, in order to continually add value, we must make sure we adapt. This course will focus on what this means for statisticians outside the technical aspects of their role. Of critical importance is self-awareness during our interactions, working effectively in teams, influencing, being customer focussed and understanding our own consulting and leadership styles.
Now more than ever we need to be creative and influential thinkers with business acumen who can work with our colleagues from other disciplines, not just be technical experts - we need to be proactive partners with strong communication skills.
This course will lead participants, in a non-threatening and encouraging atmosphere, through the process of understanding their own strengths and weaknesses and what this means when working as a strategic partner or as part of a larger team. It will include workshops to practice the skills and behaviours discussed.
This course is aimed at statisticians who want to improve their consultancy style interactions within their internal project teams and/or with external customers and understand the impact of their own behaviours and interaction preferences. The following topics will be covered:
- Myer-Briggs profiling and interactions preferences
- Effective Team working
- What does it mean to be a consultant?
- Questioning styles
- Effective Communication Skills
- Owning your own development
Course runs from: 10:00 - 17:00 (registration from 09:30)
