Communication, Leadership and Management

In your day-to-day work, you develop lots of skills both for managing projects and for working with people. These skills are needed in and outside academia. You work in a team, come to terms with your boss and supervise others. Your doctoral project and other projects need planning and management. You structure your schedule, make decisions and find ways to solve problems.

The following workshops offer reflection, training and professional tools to expand your capabilities in these fields.

All current workshops of this category are available on the qualifications portal of FSU Jena.
