During the Project & Beyond

Three colleagues discuss their project at a communal table.


Treat your partner as a true collaborator:​

  • Involve your partner fully in the project, throughout its entire lifecycle​

  • Be consistent with your level of engagement; continue with frequent, consistent communication​

  • Remain actively involved, even if your trainee handles the day-to-day of the project​

Continue building upon the relationship:​

  • Seek feedback from your partner, and remain curious in your questioning​

  • Foster new relationships within the organization or group​

  • Think beyond the project and your own research, so that the project is the start of a larger opportunity​

  • Support your students and postdocs in engaging meaningfully with your partner​
