CoachingPLUS—Career goal professorship
Postdoctoral researchers perform excellently in both research and training. At the same time, they want to shape the next career steps deliberately in order to achieve their professional goals. In addition to a high scientific expertise, this also requires leadership and management skills as well as a well-conceived research strategy.
What does CoachingPLUS offer?
CoachingPLUS combines a seminar with individual coaching. Led by a trainer who knows the rules in academic life and the respective specialist culture, the exclusive, full-day seminar extends the participants’ personal range of action. The seminar is followed by a 60 to 90-minute individual coaching session tailored to the individual situation of our postdoctoral researchers. Alternatively, it is possible to have the individual interview via phone upon request. The personal exchange with an experienced coach offers the possibility of reflecting on current professional challenges and initiating processes of change.
The topics of the coaching sessions are not predetermined and can be individually chosen by the participants. Possible coaching topics are, for example:
- Define and achieve career goals
- Preparation for appointments
- Preparation for a leading position in science and research
- Dealing with hierarchical structures in universities
- Cooperation in international teams—challenges and opportunities
- Finding creative solutions
- Dealing with difficult professional situations
- Work-life-balance: compatibility of family and career
- (Self-)Presentation at conferences, meetings and in everyday university life
