Coaching for professors

Paderborn University offers professors the opportunity to receive professional one-on-one coaching.

The coaching program is an advisory service for managerial staff that encourages them to reflect on their competencies and skills and to plan and progress in their career, with confidential professional support.

The “Coaching for professors” program is provided in co-operation with Staff Development (Division 4.5).

Paderborn University’s coaching program is a solution-oriented career development advisory service for professors. The program is designed to help participants reflect on where they are currently at in their career and explore options for their individual career development, with professional support.

Unlike a traditional advisory service, the coach does not propose solutions, but rather helps participants come up with their own solutions.

Paderborn University works in co-operation with a pool of external professional coaches. The university puts those interested in contact with a coach. After a free initial session, to get to know each other and clarify the relevant objectives, Paderborn University will cover the costs for a total of four further hours of coaching (additional sessions are possible if required, but must be paid for by the participant).
