Work more effectively with academics to motivate and equip them to generate impact, whilst shaping the impact culture of your institution.

About this Event

This course will help you work more effectively with academics to motivate and equip them to generate impact from their research, whilst shaping the impact culture of your institution.

You will:

• Learn how to motivate academics from any discipline to engage more deeply with impact

• Be empowered to lead transformational conversations and workshops with academics around impact, and be able to deal with difficult individuals and situations with confidence

• Be equipped with tools you can use easily with academics, and that busy academics can use themselves to fast track their impact

• Have an opportunity to think deeply about the impact culture of different groups in your institution and consider ways in which you can shape that culture to inspire and draw researchers to impact, whilst equipping them with the skills and confidence they need
