The Challenges of Transitioning to Lab Management
For this week's Teach Me in 10 video, we're joined by Scott Hanton, Editorial Director at Lab Manager, who discusses the Lab Manager Academy which is helping lab professionals lead with more success and confidence.
Lab management and leadership is a difficult role for which many scientists are unprepared. Most new lab managers learn from their predecessors and on their own.
The Lab Manager Academy courses help to combat this by providing essential knowledge and training to lab managers. In the online training curriculum, you can take individual lab management courses, or sign up for track-level certificates that will sharpen your existing leadership and management skills and either prepare you for taking on a lab manager role or improve your ability to succeed in your current lab manager role.
