Leadership for Innovative Team Science (LITeS)

Leadership for Innovative Team Science (LITeS) is a year-long program designed for senior and mid-career faculty and academic administrators (typically at the rank of Associate Professor or higher) who aspire to improve their management and leadership skills. This program provides professional and executive training tailored to the needs of academics in the biomedical, clinical, and health sciences. An important goal of the program is to create and sustain a strong network of colleagues who, in addition to their own work, will train the next generation of clinical and translational scientists at the University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus.

The LITeS workshops are highly interactive and small group projects will be a cornerstone of the program. Executive coaching will also be available, on a limited basis, to address individual leadership challenges.
