Personnel Management for Principal Investigators **

R. Kevin Grigsby, DSW, Senior Director, Member Organizational Development
Association of American Medical Colleges

Description: Principal Investigators (PIs) are highly trained scientists. They are subject matter and technical experts on aspects of scientific inquiry. Their laboratories serve as the site of their efforts. They are not alone: laboratories need highly skilled technicians and serve as the site for advanced scientific training for postdoctoral scholars and graduate students. The typical PI has not been trained in personnel management. In fact, the only experience they have with managing people comes from on-the-job experiences during their days as graduate students and postdocs. As science becomes more collaborative and the pressure to produce scholarship grows, managing people competently is crucial. Participants in this workshop will learn basic human resource and personnel management that will help them to improve the efficiency of their laboratories. Topics covered include recruiting and hiring staff, evaluating workplace performance, management of interpersonal conflict, and negotiation.

Potential participants may not be aware of some of the resources that will help them to be successful. They can start by going to http://LabManager.com and reviewing the helpful tips related to managing a lab.
