Scientific Leadership Coaching for Biopharma Organizations
What if you could have the eyes and ears of a seasoned biotech executive who works with you to train and coach your employees to higher productivity and engagement?
And what if that person had themselves been a scientist, had made the transition from the academic to the business world, and who deeply understood both the strengths and the blind spots of scientific/technical training?
Your company may be facing:
A new leader (including the CEO and CSO) whose role stretches them beyond their training and experience
Scientists who are incredibly smart, technically excellent but don’t yet know how to manage people or participate in or lead a cross-functional team
The (ever present!) need to effectively communicate data to non-experts
Scientific Leadership Coaching Services
Personalized scientific leadership coaching
Are there high-potential scientists in your organization who would benefit from a boost to get to the next level?
Maybe a new leader who is unfamiliar with roles that involve people and process as well as data?
Scientific leadership coaching can help them tap into their potential in non-technical areas, becoming more effective managers, team leaders, and cross-functional collaborators.
You may be aware of areas for growth and development across your organization, or across your cohort of high-potential future leaders.
Many scientific organizations benefit from training in communication to non-experts, collaboration across functional areas, and leading teams. I offer tailored learning sessions for large or small groups to work on these skills, and many others.
Because I understand the typical mindset of a scientist, and I take the time to explain the “why” of the topics as well as just the skills, these sessions are approachable and enjoyable, even for technical experts who are unenthusiastic about training.
Start off with an evaluation
Any coaching or training engagement can begin with an assessment of the organization’s strengths and areas for growth. Through interviewing and observation of team dynamics (such as a leadership team) I can recommend what coaching topics and training areas to prioritize.
These offerings can be combined: start with an evaluation, identify a cohort for scientific leadership coaching, and plan training to cover topics that would benefit multiple participants.
All offerings can be done remotely, with the option for San Francisco Bay Area clients for in person.

Many coaches and trainers do not have the technical knowledge and experience in business roles that I have. This knowledge and experience allows me to quickly grasp the objectives of your business and to relate to what scientists and other technical experts face.
