We are happy to announce the first half-day workshop “Involving Your PI in Your Career Development”.

Date: Wednesday, 17 September 2014, 14:00-18:00 o’clock
Place: GZMB building, Justus-von-Liebig-Weg 11, seminar room 0.232
Duration: 0.5 day

Content:
Do you wonder how your principal investigator (PI) could support your career development? In the workshop, you get input in why it might be important to involve your PI and in which form. We will elaborate topics relevant and useful to be discussed with your PI, also in the light of different career decision regarding an academic or non-academic career. Goals of the workshop are to become clear about which topics you would like to involve your PI in, what to consider in this regard, and to come up with a concrete goal of how to involve your PI in your career development.

In addition, we offer optional communication training.

Date 1: Thursday, 18 September 2014, 9:00-17:00 o’clock
Date 2: Friday, 19 September 2014, 9:00-17:00 o’clock
Place: Von-Siebold-Straße 4, seminar room on the first floor (left)
Duration: 1 day

Content:
To support the actual conversation with your PI and, potentially, conflict resolutions, we supplement the half-day workshop with offering one-day communication training. The communication training will support you in reflecting your own communication strengths and expanding your communication skills so that you gain self-confidence in setting up and performing conversations with your PI and dealing with unforeseen situations and feedback you get. Therefore, the training will include brief theoretical inputs (e.g. on the communication model based on Marshall Rosenberg), breathing, vocal and body exercises, role playing, detailed feedback on personal appearance in conversations, exercises for improving your personal appearance.
