FSK-8003 Leadership skills: why and how


Leaders come in different shades, from excellent to ruthless or even scary. Leadership is not an exact science, and how the task is solved depends on the situation, time and the employees. What is a good leader and what kind of leader could you become?

Recommended for PhD candidates in their third or fourth year.
