Professional Training for future group leaders: how to cultivate a productive team environment– Barry Schwartz (Visiting Professor in Management of Organizations, Haas School of Business; former Professor of Psychology, Swarthmore College)

177 LSA, **12:30-1:30pm**.  Note our new time.

Dear fellow MCB postdocs,

Please join us Friday, October 18th to join a discussion with Barry Schwartz (Visiting Professor, Haas School of Business; former Professor of Psychology, Swarthmore College) on what makes work good for people - how can we as future group leaders develop happy and productive team environments?

As always, (free) lunch will be provided during this opportunity to learn in an informal Q&A format from the experience of our invited speakers and to network with departmental postdocs as we navigate career trajectories together.

PDLC is a great opportunity to get to know and network with your fellow MCB postdocs and to learn and discuss about topics relevant for you and your career inside and outside academia in an informal environment with FREE lunch. We usually have one or two guest speakers, who share their insider knowledge on a given topic ranging from the grant and faculty applications, to different career paths in industry and consulting. Attending events is a way for postdocs to leverage career connections via the MCB department to perform group informational interviews and get in touch with faculty and professionals for the next stages of our collective professional lives.
