Leadership for Innovative Team Science (LITeS)


Leadership for Innovative Team Science (LITeS) is offered annually to a cohort of 20-30 University of Colorado senior and emerging leaders.  Structured as a year-long experience, individuals attend a quarterly series of 2-day workshops focused on building leadership skills. LITeS fosters team science by:
  • Creating a network of colleagues.
  • Expanding opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration.
  • Ensuring that the next generation of clinical and translational scientists receives the highest quality training for leadership.
The LITeS program addresses three key leadership domains:
  • Individual leadership styles and behaviors.
  • Interpersonal and team skills for leading, managing, and working with people.
  • Process skills for increasing quality and efficiency in the work of academic leadership. 
Participants will:
  • Complete a 360 degree evaluation process.
  • Choose a professional development goal and complete a plan for its achievement.
  • Receive guidance from university leaders in putting the plan to work.
    Beginning in 2017-18, LITeS will also enroll intact teams on an annual or biennial basis.

Nominations are now being accepted for LITeS 2018 - 2019
