No research program can be stronger than its weakest component. In this workshop, we will reflect on the triple responsibility of any principal investigator: to our research, to our trainees, and to our team, such that these three basic elements are strong and aligned. We will consider how successful teams are essential to a robust research program, how to go about developing, maintaining, and adapting your team in an ever-changing environment. We will discuss the importance of mission-based job descriptions and performance evaluations, how your team fits in the larger organizational culture and climate, and how to encourage and support creativity by supporting connections and well-being within your team. Join us for a discussion on this ever evolving topic, and share with the group your experience with barriers to and tips for of a successful team.
