Peer Coaching Groups – A Method to Achieve Your Career Goals


You might have made some New Year’s resolutions, some of them might have to do with your career goals such as finding a new position or establishing a cooperation or writing a grant proposal. As it is hard to find the time and to overcome obstacles alone, peer coaching could be helpful in sticking to your goals and continuously doing something to achieve them.

You wonder what peer coaching is or how it could help you achieving your goals? In the next Career Impulse Session, Barbara Hoffbauer and I want to introduce and discuss the idea of peer coaching groups with you.

Date: 25 February 2014, 15:00 – 17:00 o’clock

Place: GZMB building, Justus-von-Liebig-Weg 11, room 0.232

If you are planning to join the session, please write me an e-mail!

Please write me also an e-mail, if you might be interested to join a peer coaching group, but cannot make it to the session!
