Do you find it difficult to set boundaries? Do you suffer from work pressure? Do you want to avoid unhealthy stress, or restore your balance? Our coaches can help you to reflect on yourself, allowing you to do your work with renewed energy and enthusiasm.

With coaching, you can get to know yourself better, become more self-confident and learn how to develop effective behaviour. A coaching programme is compiled entirely on the basis of each individual’s personality and learning needs.

You can ask a coach to help, for example, if you’re experiencing problems in the area of work pressure, vitality, communication or teamwork. Coaching can also be helpful if you’re having difficulties in interacting with colleagues or your manager. Or if you’re a manager, perhaps you want to lead your team more effectively. Coaches help you to achieve your personal goals and raise your awareness, making you more able to recognise and understand your behavioural and thinking patterns.

And if you feel ready to explore the next step in your career, this is another area where coaching can be effective. Leiden University offers all staff members a range of options for career guidance and advice.
