To be successful in your PhD, postdoc or any other professional context in future, excellent communication skills are indispensable. It applies to discussions with supervisors, project members, colleagues, to scientific presentations or job interviews, to dialogues with superiors, subordinates, or clients. Often, our communication is suffering from misunderstandings, unclarity, missing openness, and the inability to address conflicts.
You will learn how to prepare and conduct difficult conversations. You will learn to assess the effects of different behaviours. You will find out how you come across to others and how you can further improve your current communicative skills.

One of my best experiences
Thank you for the amazing course. It was indeed one of my best experiences.
With a simple, vivid as well as professional way you managed to cover all the important topics how to successfully present scientific talks. There are some “secrets of success” that I was not aware.
