You are looking for a group of like-minded people todiscuss work-related issues? You want to increase your motivation and self-discipline? You like to participate in an ongoing quest for improving your own time- and self-management? Maybe you need some fresh ideas about how to steer your career? Then a peer coaching team might be just the right thing for you.
As a postdoc you have a lot of different responsibilities: Research, publishing, teaching, administrative work ... Most postdocs have to figure out on their own how to best approach this multitude of roles and responsibilities. The insights, ideas, and experiences of other postdocs could be highly valuable. If you see the benefits of discussing the challenges of your situation with others, if you like to profit from their feedback and support then check out the peer coaching workshop. In the kick-off workshop you learn about the method and structure of peer coaching. You have a trial run. And then you decide whether you want to participate in a peer coaching team. A team consists of 4-6 members (from different disciplines). The team meets every two to three weeks. And each meeting is structured in a way that allows each member to address an issue that is of relevance for him or her. Everything that is related to your role and work as a postdoc could become a topic, i.e. how to structure your day efficiently, how to deal with a conflict in your team, or how to approach the next steps in your career.
If you are interested just join the kick-off workshop and find out whether you want to start your own team.
