The coaching empowers women to be successful, inspires them personally and professionally, and further promotes the issue of women’s participation and positive visibility in organizational and societal leadership.

Maybe you have a concrete issue to reflect. Otherwise, here are some topics that leadership women commonly are interested in.

As leading and managing are different tasks from your specific scientific field of research and teaching one approach can be to reflect on the challenges of these activities and e.g. scientific evidence on how to be a good leader and manager.
- Are special techniques of interest to you (managing time, recruiting, supervising, staff selection, teambuilding, meetings, negotiation, strategic networking, international, or interdisciplinary collaboration...)?
- Are there critical incidents with single individuals or misunderstandings etc. that you’d want to find methods to analyze or react to?
- Are there (intercultural or hierarchical) group-dynamics e.g. within your faculty or department that you’d like to understand better and influence for a different outcome?

Careers topics:
- Do you want to strategically plan next career steps or establishing yourself more comfortably?
- Are there concrete issues in your personal career, career fulfillment, leadership or work-life-integration that you’d like to discuss and be supported to solve?
