How much difference is good for me? Breaking the german squareness (Friday, June 22, 2018, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. )
Your group leader is always busy, practically never present in the lab, and you wonder how the hell you will be able to lead the team?
In your research project, your advancement heavily depends on the collaboration with others but as colleagues you cannot get them to deliver what needs to be delivered in time. Your partner and you rarely talk about YOUR personal plans for your shared life but you think, as a woman, you have to adjust to your partner’s career, especially when kids come into play.
If you recognize yourself in one of these scenarios you may have a lot of questions about:
- The secrets of good leadership
- Making binding decisions and enforcing them
- Interpersonal dynamics in mixed teams (e.g., gender, age, nationality, language)
- Self-acceptance, Self-staging, and power plays
- Female and male strengths in different cultures
In this workshop, we combine an exciting discussion about all you ever wanted to know about a successful and fulfilling career with individual coaching sessions.
Who is the coach?
