Independent research experts at your service

Coaching for researchers and academic staff

Based on our own experiences as researchers, group leaders, project managers, trainers, and coaches, we observe a lack of independent support in academia.

We are a team of 4 people to help you (professors, lecturers, postdocs, PhD candidates, Master students, managers in academic environments, project team members, scientific staff, academic staff, administrative staff, etc.) in your challenging situation(s).
We are independent of academia in the sense that we are NOT mandated by any academic organization. All conversations are naturally performed under strict confidentiality.

We are speaking english – nous parlons français – wir sprechen Deutsch.

Our typical coaching sessions last 60 minutes and are performed online.
Choose your coach, book an appointment, and we will contact you asap. For other questions, use the contact form.
