We’re launching a new leadership course next year and in this episode, we go into some key questions about statisticians and leadership.
We cover the following topics:
- What is a good definition for leadership?
- Why should technical statisticians worry about developing leadership skills?
- What happens, if you have limitations in the leadership skills?
- What should the mindset of a statistical leader be?
- When should statisticians start thinking about developing their leadership skills?
About Gary Sullivan
I worked in and around the field of statistical science in both technical (13 years) and management roles (15 years) for Eli Lilly and Company, a major pharmaceutical manufacturer in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Couple this experience with my leadership study – almost 10 years creating, implementing and instructing leadership programs. The result is a perspective from all sides: the employee, the manager and the leadership expert.
This allows me to understand what will be helpful and insightful to any person or group seeking to improve their leadership.
