You are in a phase of life where you are thinking about where your professional career could take you? Do you feel like taking the next step in your career - in your current company, in another company, at a university or non-university? Are you already a postdoc and considering whether the career goal of professorship is attainable for you? Maybe even in another country?

Your head is muddled and you keep going round in circles?

Find out more about your talents, skills and abilities and what motivates you in particular. On this basis, we work on your next career step in a solution-oriented way.
Career Planning in Science: Workshop University of Erlangen
My career coaching for experienced managers is based on a well-founded career path of my own. I was a laboratory manager in a development department of large-scale industry, I was a process developer and designed process engineering plants, I traveled internationally to commission wastewater treatment plants, I wrote a technical book about my professional expertise, which also took me to China and the USA as a project manager. In Saudi Arabia, I became an assistant professor, the first woman to teach wastewater biology to engineers at a public university. Today, I am a science manager at the University of Erlangen, developing career and excellence programs for scientists and responsible for career coaching and giving trainings on various career-related topics and have my own company Karrierelust.
I have completed my knowledge in recent years with training as a Systemic DVCT-certified coach at the ICO Institute in Munich. In Systemic Coaching I do not create solutions for you, but make sure that you actively develop a solution that suits you. The decisive advantage: It will be your solution, it will be your way. Nothing is imposed from the outside, and experience shows that the paths you find yourself are easier to follow.
