Reinforcing the Backbone

Speaker

Abstract

It is commonly recognized that technicians are the backbone of a successful animal research program. Unfortunately, the invisible contributions that they make as well as the valuable high level contributions they could make are often missed. In addition, ambitious and talented technicians can feel trapped in a position that limits their contributions and mobility. This paradigm can be broken by focusing on team development, continuing scientific education, communication training, and leadership skills. Actual case studies and development progressions will be used to present strategies for the technician to advance their skills and make themselves more valuable both as technical experts and leaders. Additionally, leadership tips will be offered for managers and scientists to fully develop the potential of their technicians and learn from them as well.
