Solution-Oriented Individual Coaching

Are you frustrated with your doctorate? While writing your dissertation, there are phases that are difficult or unsettling. For example, your own self-management and time management do not work out or difficulties arise concerning the supervision of your doctorate. For more clarity in your mind, GradNet offers you the opportunity to work on your personal concerns in individual coaching sessions. Those sessions take place in a confidential and solution-oriented manner. In this way, you can reflect upon your resources, strengths and obstacles and find a good way to deal with hurdles and challenges.
