Session overview

Holding career conversations with your postdocs can feel challenging and you may feel pressure to know all of the answers. However, you aren’t a career consultant (nor are you expected to be) so how can you have meaningful career conversations? 

Denise Chiton, a professional certified coach and leadership development specialist with over 10 years’ coaching experience, lead the two-part session about how to hold a career conversation with practical advice, and a resource to take away. You can see part two here.

Session outcomes

  • How can coaching principles help you talk to your postdoc, assign roles and responsibilities and manage expectations. 
  • How can core coaching skills be used effectively? (e.g. asking powerful questions, listening and use of silence, giving feedback and reflecting back). 
  • What exactly is coaching? ‘The Principles’ 
  • How can you deepen your knowledge of coaching relationships?
