Building high-performing interdisciplinary teams
Online course

Our half day courses are the most popular, but we can also provide most courses as 1 hour, 90 minute and 2 hour stand-alone courses, or connect these together into a series of sessions running over a few weeks or months. Set up a call to discuss how we can adapt this course to your needs.

Our online courses are just as interactive as any face-to-face training. They are specially designed so you get more engagement in ways that are not possible when everyone is in the same room together. Online courses are a great way to keep colleagues connected and inspired.

Since it was introduced in 2013, this course has become the most widely used resource to train researchers in impact around the world, having been used by over 200 institutions in 55 countries to date. 



Course Description

Learn how to build high-performing interdisciplinary teams with a Principal Investigator who has led tens of interdisciplinary teams in projects worth many millions that have led to highly cited papers and internationally important impacts. This highly interactive session challenges conventional wisdom which focuses on research interests and skills but leads to highly qualified but ultimately dysfunctional teams. Instead, consider the deep dynamics of interdisciplinary team building, considering how personalities, ways of knowing (“epistemologies”) and values interact to produce teams of people who work effectively and enjoyably together. As part of the session, you will receive a PDF and audio book version of Prof Reed’s book, Impact Culture.

Key benefits:

  • Explore the deep dynamics of high-performing interdisciplinary teams through a series of paired, individual and group exercises

  • Gain practical skills in the development of interdisciplinary writing circles

  • Learn methods to build more compassionate team cultures

At the end of the workshop:

  • Receive slides and links to free resources to help you embed impact in your research

  • Have the option to make a commitment to an action based on the course, and receive a follow-up email from Prof Reed to check in and help as necessary after a month.


Prof Reed continues to answer all questions from participants via email after the course, guaranteeing a response to all questions within one week.
