Offers for Scientific Staff with Leading Responsibilities

The task of leading coworkers can be challenging: the leaders´ conduct and behaviour can strongly influence motivation, job satisfaction and performance of coworkers.

We would like to offer leaders Support regarding their daily challenges as superiors and leaders. Advice and consultation are being treated on a strictly confidential basis. Each means of support will be arranged in accurate compliance with the questioner and won´t entail fix obligations. Together, we will bring clarification to challenging developments in their work situation which need to be optimized or resolved. We try to develop solutions on a strategic and sustainable basis.

Should you happen to have leading responsibilities, please find below a first overview of our approaches for your team, or for yourself, or for a specific coworker of yours.

Fulfilling my Leadership Role

    If you are looking for a professional interlocutor with whom to talk about challenging issues in your work situation which need to be optimized or resolved: we offer to arrange a first consultation appointment with a professional coach, who could accompany processes over a period of time!

    You decide whether, which way, and how long to work with the coach after the first meeting.

    The official procurement (of the coach) and administrative proceedings (of the coaching process) will be handled by our section. Cost coverage will be determined according to the case. As a rule, costs are covered by the institution of the questioner.

    The sequence planning (dates, meeting places, fine-tuning of the goals) is up to the questioner(s) and the coach. We kindly invite you to contact us.
