Peer Coaching is a low-threshold format to increase your efficiency at work. You regularly meet with colleagues to discuss and confidentially reflect aspects of daily routine, current practices and the challenges of cooperating in a research team. This interactive process is supervised by a coach who guides you through this transparent and confidential process.

Asking your colleagues for concrete feedback concerning specific aspects of your work can help you to expand and broaden your perspective on a certain topic. You learn from the experiences and the knowledge of each other.

Peer Coaching enables you to talk about your challenges at work. You gain ideas and strategies to initiate solutions for your individual case. Peer Coaching enables you to improve your management competencies and to develop your personality as a responsible, reflected and open minded researcher.
