Building Leadership Skills in Research Groups.

Stefanie Robel

Curr Protoc 2022 Jun;2(6):e451

Department of Cell, Developmental and Integrative Biology, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL, United States.

The academic research enterprise currently suffers from a culture of "academic bullying" and an unprecedented worldwide mental health crisis among trainees and faculty. These struggles, in part, result from a lack of leadership skills. Mental health, well-being, intrinsic motivation, and engagement at work are linked to three fundamental needs of self-determination: autonomy, competence, and relatedness. Read More
