CAS Future Leaders: On the trail toward scientific leadership

Celebrating its 10th year, the CAS Future Leaders program awards early-career scientists with essential scientific, business and leadership training and a trip to the ACS National Meeting & Exposition.

Celebrating its 10th year, the CAS Future Leaders program awards early-career scientists with essential scientific, business and leadership training and a trip to the ACS National Meeting & Exposition. This year, 29 participants from 16 countries took part in programming related to five leadership themes (Storytelling, Insights, Strategies, Perspectives and Impacts), all designed to help them advance their careers and make meaningful impacts in science.

Now that the 2019 program has come to a close, we look back on all that happened during their stay. And who better to share the experience (in tweets!) than the CAS Future Leaders themselves.

Storytelling

Storytelling is rarely taught during scientific training. But narratives can be more successful in generating interest and engagement with a topic, improving comprehension, and influencing real-world beliefs. On Monday morning, participants learned the essential leadership skill of storytelling in an interactive workshop with The Story Collider.

In the afternoon, they reflected on what they learned as they presented their research to fellow Future Leaders and the scientists, technologists, marketers and administrators who work for CAS and ACS Publications.

Insights

Successful leaders are results oriented. Whether you need to deliver published manuscripts, funded grants or completed projects, having deep insights into the research process can help you succeed at every step. On Tuesday morning, participants explored the process by which their research is published, indexed and delivered to scientists around the world by CAS.

In the afternoon, they saw first-hand how the advanced chemistry relevance engine in SciFindern can help them quickly find actionable results and deliver on their next big research project.

Strategies

Collaboration is essential to scientific progress. Successful leaders inspire the best performance from their collaborators, research teams and others by using a number of coaching techniques, such as building trust, clarifying their vision, respectfully challenging and celebrating success. On Wednesday, participants learned how to apply science-based coaching strategies to help them lead high-performing teams and productive collaborations in an interactive, full-day workshop with scitrain.

Perspectives

Successful leaders drive understanding and acceptance of their research not only in the published literature, but also with science-policy makers, the media, industry stakeholders and funding organizations. They know the importance of adapting their communication style for their audience and have a broad understanding of the scientific enterprise as a whole. On Thursday, our line-up of science-industry thought leaders shared their perspectives to inspire our participants to make meaningful impacts in the lab and beyond.

Impacts

Research matters. Whether it leads to innovation in healthcare or technology, or supports a greener Earth, it’s important that leaders recognize the impacts of their research and strive for real-world solutions. On Friday, participants visited with physicians, researchers and cancer survivors at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center (OSUCCC – James), one of only 50 NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers in the nation.
