Workshop outline

Date: 21-22 October 2021, 9 am - 1 pm
Online via Zoom

Do you work in larger collaborations with other scientists? Are you struggling to get the feedback you are looking for from your supervisor or peer? Or do you just need to work out with your colleague who can use the laser during the next days? Communication is vital – especially for young scientists – and conflicts cannot always be prevented.

Content and aim of the workshop
In this course you will learn skills which help you to efficiently communicate with colleagues and supervisors, e.g. to define common levels of expectation and to prevent conflicts. We will discuss further how to resolve conflicts if they occur, or how to minimize their negative outcome.

Trainer: Dr. Alexander Britz was a doctoral student at European XFEL, IMPRS-UFAST, CUI & PIER in Hamburg. He continued to pursue his interdisciplinary research studying chemical systems and novel materials with lasers, X-rays and electrons at SLAC National Accelerator Lab/Stanford University before he became a Trainer, Coach and Facilitator for young scientists. Since 2020 he is self-employed and works with young scientists, such as PhD students and Postdocs, on developing their communication, creativity, management, and leadership skillset. Furthermore, he is constantly working on developing novel learning and teaching formats and finding ways to elevate science and academia. More info: http://alexbritz.de/
