Corporate Research Engagement 101 (Interactive Seminar)

November 6, 2018, 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.

Many factors are driving an increase in engagement between universities and industry; including increased competition for redirected and/or declining governmental research investments and the creation of products and markets that require a workforce with new skills. As University researchers navigate these dynamics it is important to understand the extent to which successful relationships are dependent on an understanding of corporate decision making, the ability to manage expectations, and taking a holistic approach to finding win-win value propositions on the industry/university engagement continuum. Strategic partnerships in this domain merge the discovery-driven culture of the university with the innovation-driven environment of the company. To make the chemistry work, each side must overcome the cultural and communications differences that often impair industry/university partnerships of all types and undercut their potential. This seminar led by the Industry Liaison Office addresses the industry-university opportunities by providing researchers with a fundamental understanding of the value of industry engagement and the engagement continuum, tools for rapidly vetting and solidifying industrial opportunities, and knowledge of the support resources at OSU that are key to helping secure and nurture industrial relationships.

Leadership Compass

November 15, 2018 | 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

“If knowing yourself and being yourself were as easy to do as to talk about, there wouldn't be nearly so many people walking around in borrowed postures, spouting secondhand ideas, trying desperately to fit in rather than to stand out.” - Warren G. Bennis

How well do you know yourself, what defines you as a leader? Knowing yourself is essential to being a good leader. When you understand who you are; your talents, beliefs, and skills, you are better prepared to not only lead yourself, but others too. When individuals know their qualities, they become a stronger team member, as they know exactly what and how they can contribute to team success.

The Leadership Compass draws from the Native American Indian tradition of the Medicine Wheel or the Four-Fold Way. In the Four-Fold Way, the four directions are described as warrior (north), healer (south), teacher (west), and visionary (east). All directions have profound strengths and potential weaknesses, and every person is seen as capable of growing in each direction. Each person can learn the gifts associated with each direction -- through practice and self-awareness.

Team Strengths

December 6, 2018 | 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

As a leader it is important to know what talents you possess, that you bring to the leadership table. Do you know what strengths you possess? Every leader possesses her/his own unique set of talents. According to the Gallup Organization, "we spend too much time focusing on our weaknesses, trying to make them stronger rather than recognizing our strengths." When you focus on your weaknesses, you miss out on utilizing what you do best for your organization.

This strengths-based workshop will help teams go further in understanding how their strengths help the team achieve success. Our individual talents help influence how a team cooperates and communicates to reach success. The more that teams collaborate and utilize the partnerships when strengths are combined can move a good team to a great one.

No one person works in a silo, therefore, we need to together, by tapping into each person’s strengths. Finding teammates who have strengths that complement yours, and you can team up together, you will accomplish more than if you work independently.
