2020 Virtual Research Administration Day

Pre-Conference Workshops

Workshop 1

REMOTE WORK BEST PRACTICE: KEY SOFT SKILLS TEAM BUILDING, COMMUNICATION, RECRUITMENT, RETENTION, ACCOUNTABILITY AND DEVELOPMENT

Saiqa Anne
Manager of Analysis Team, Contracts and Grants Accounting, University of California-San Francisco

 
As remote work is the new normal, and remains so, for many indefinitely, we need to focus away from the transitional phase and into the skills needed in the long term. As we consider what is needed beyond equipment and cloud based drives, we focus on the key soft skills to support and build a team, ensure communication and continue to develop and train within research administration.

What can the Seven Dwarfs from Snow White teach us about our profession? If you said, “nothing”, you could be wrong! It’s off to work we go with Doc, Dopey, Bashful, Grumpy, Sneezy, Sleepy, and Happy as they teach pre-award administrators about their profession, careers, colleagues, and personalities. Maybe you will recognize yourself or others or others in these fairytales characters… just don’t show up grumpy or bashful.

September 25

 
Research Administration is a real career – we even have an official day (September 25) to celebrate and recognize the significant contributions we make to the research enterprise at our institutions. Most of us come from varied and diverse backgrounds and bring a unique skill set to the table. And, as Dr. Seuss wrote, “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose!” This session will highlight how to capitalize on your strengths and grow your career in research administration. The presenters will provide real examples of how other were ready for their next career step by continually building their knowledge, skills and attitude, while keeping an eye on emerging opportunities.
