Why attend this training?

This training course greatly improves your efficiency by ramping up your personal productivity and research output. If you feel that you have more work than you can handle and that you have no time for the things that really matter, this course is ideal for you. It helps you to regain a sense of control over your daily tasks, develop motivational goals, and follow your goals through to success. As a result you will feel less pressurised and more motivated in your job and therefore satisfied as you succeeded and fulfill your ambitions. Using a detailed, critical analysis of your current working patterns on the one hand and your personal goals on the other, you learn how to spend your time in the most efficient and relevant way. During the course you work on improving your own personal situation, while exchanging ideas with research colleagues. This enables you to evaluate your own situation, and to reflect on possible solutions to critical difficulties with peers.
