Your transition from academia to industry will require an upgrade in your communication competencies.  Every leadership and job performance analysis places communications in the top 3 required competencies to be successful in industry. You are about to transition from a small close-knit and independent work group to a complex array of hundreds of interdependent professionals that are all focused on achieving common as well as individual goals. Successful Communications as a Scientist is designed to get you thinking beyond the technical content of your communications and begin to use your entire brain; the logical data-driven thinking dimensions, the affective and emotional engagement dimensions and the socially attuned and shared ownership dimensions.  The four competency levels of communications (1. technical literacy, 2. style flexibility, 3. emotional intelligence and 4. social intelligence) are unique to the SciPhD communications model.  It is important to demonstrate a “Ask Questions When You Know the Answer” behavior as we will be using this technique throughout the course. Learn six techniques that expand your influence, persuade, gain agreement, and create advocates and select which two for mastery.

Behavioral Objectives

  • Effectively communicate complex science to ANY audience
  • Ability to adjust your communications style to that of your audience to promote productive discussion
  • Ability to maintain control of your emotions to remain positive
  • Effectively adjust your communications content and style to reflect the social role of your audience to demonstrate your value

    How to expand your network to advance your job search and gain advocates to help you get a job.  Building relationships is the key to personal and business success.  Having a strong network of diverse contacts provides you with access to a tremendous amount of information that can give you a competitive advantage in launching and advancing your career.  Understanding how businesses operate can provide you with insightful questions and responses in demonstrating your value to new contacts.  Applying the four aspects of communications (technical literacy, style flexibility, emotional intelligence, and social intelligence) allow you to establish and develop strong relationships. All the skills and accomplishments related to these areas can be put in play in developing strong relationships and building a powerful network.  Just remember to bring your m&ms!

    SPECIAL NOTE:  One of the 90 min sessions is an actual SciPhD virtual VIP networking event. Participants will have the opportunity to meet, listen, ask questions and network with alumni from the hosting institution as well as SciPhD graduates – all with jobs!
