You can make an individual selection from different fields, about which we are happy to advise you
– non-subject-specific skills
– orientation and networking
– individual coaching
All the programmes are designed without limitation to specific faculties. That will enable you to develop personal networks beyond your own field and will facilitate your interdisciplinary work and research.
We offer you different programmes and courses to develop non-subject-specific skills in accordance with your personal goals and needs. The range covers topics like leadership competence, communication, clearing up conflicts, or career planning. You can make an individual choice from this range on the basis of your needs, prior knowledge and the requirements at your institute or department.
Orientation and networking
Attending events from the broad range on offer at Heidelberg University will enable you to gain insights into internal structures and networks. That guarantees the good orientation and individual positioning necessary for successful work. Furthermore, personal issues can be discussed around the topic of career planning.
Coaching is a confidential, professional process of dialogue that allows you to clarify individual work-related issues. Coaching can be an invaluable tool for successfully handling new management responsibilities, change processes, conflicts, time management issues, and personal career planning.
