WHAT WE DO.

Team leadership


Leading a scientific team can be challenging. Aligning expectations and keeping everyone motivated while feeling the pressure to create great results can be a tough job. At the same time all kinds of dynamics, small and larger conflicts, can take place within the team, which may be hard to grasp, but seriously influence the scientific output.

We are specialized in helping scientific teams to optimize collaboration, team spirit and communication between the team members. By reflecting on the specific roles of each member, the relationships between the members and all the background everyone brings, we create clarity in the current dynamics. Working with just the team leader and secondly with the team as a whole, we improve the leadership, and help to get the best out of the team. The end goal is to have the full team work in a coherent and stimulating ambiance, where every member can blossom to their full potential.

If you are interested to work with your team and want to discuss the possibilities, please contact us.





Personal leadership


In order to be an inspiring leader it is crucial to know yourself. Growing in leadership encompasses therefore deep reflection, besides learning practical skills. We can provide training to learn practical skills and to work on your personal development.

Examples of workshops on personal development and leadership are 'Motivating and supervising PhD students', 'How to lead a team', 'Boosting self confidence', 'Dealing with stress', 'Personal leadership', 'A happy work/life balance' and 'Influencing others'.

Examples of workshops on practical leadership skills are 'Personal effectiveness', 'Giving inspiring presentations', 'Successful Grant writing', 'Honest networking', 'Effective collaborations' and 'Giving and receiving feedback'.

We also developed a full training programme for PhD Students and one for postdocs, where they get specifically what they need over the time of their project. If you would like to have a detailed description of these programmes please contact us.

For a full course on academic leadership please visit the website of the Centre for Academic Leadership.

A workshop usually covers a maximum of 1 day. Training programmes can be multiple days over a time span or several days aligned.
