NWO-I offers PhDs the possibility of individual coaching to enable them to develop as scientists.
Generally speaking, coaching is a means of supporting professional and personal development. During a series of sessions the coach and the member of staff examine existing behaviour and consider and experiment with more effective forms of behaviour. The starting point for this is always the member of staff's question.
If you are a PhD who - from the perspective of your work situation - is interested in individual coaching, then please contact the Central Personnel Service or the personnel officer of your NWO-I Institute. NWO-I will then put you in contact with a professional coach. If an initial consultation reveals that there are enough starting points then a number of coaching sessions will take place. NWO-I will cover the costs involved. In return NWO-I expects a small investment from you in the form of paid leave.
