Coaching and career coaching

Do you find it difficult to set boundaries? Maybe you suffer from work pressure? Would you like to explore the next step in your career or find out what your further options are? Would you like to spar with someone about improving your team’s performance? The coaches/career coaches from the HRM Learning & Development department will be happy to answer any questions you may have..

Our professional coaches offer the following:
•    Individual coaching: personal effectiveness, stress prevention and vitality;
•    Career coaching;
•    Career coaching through the curriculum for PhD candidates and postdocs.

Depending on the circumstances and the need, the coaching can be offered  in person or online.

Do you want to get to know yourself better and operate even more powerfully and effectively? Do you want to avoid unhealthy stress or restore your balance? Are you experiencing bottlenecks in terms of work pressure, vitality, communication or cooperation with colleagues? Our coaches can help you reflect on your performance, advising you on how to adapt your behaviour and attitude so you can once again do your work with energy and enthusiasm.

Introductory meeting and costs

In a free consultation, we will discuss your questions, the objectives you wish to achieve and a possible plan of approach. If this results in a coaching track, we will provide you with a proposal. In a coaching track, it can be a good idea for your manager to be involved in the coaching questions. Permission from your manager is required before starting a coaching track. The costs of this track (€75 per hour) will be charged.

Would you like to explore the next step in your career or investigate whether your current position is still right for you? Or maybe your contract is due to expire and you need to find a new job? Make sure you know yourself well so you can make the right choices. The career coaches have numerous tools and tips at their fingertips to help you sharpen your profile. They can also offer tips on how to orient yourself to the job market and present yourself as well as possible (i.e. networking and polishing your CV, motivation letter and job application). 

If you have any questions or would like a personal conversation, please contact one of the career coaches.

PhD candidates and postdocs have a temporary appointment at the university. Many of them continue their careers elsewhere afterwards. The chances of finding a new job are very good, but you need to be well prepared in advance. PhD candidates and postdocs can avail themselves of career coaching free of charge. This involves a combination of individual meetings, access to the online Career Platform and various training courses. 

Introductory meeting 

During this first consultation, we will discuss your questions, the objectives you wish to achieve and a possible plan of approach. We will consider the best way for you to plan your career orientation. If you are in the third year of your PhD track or halfway through your postdoc, please feel free to request an orientation discussion! This initial consultation is free of charge.
