On September 4th, we again held our event introducing coaching and collegial guidance as part of the programme "(f)empower. Coaching and Collegial Counselling" programme. This programme is aimed at women and was launched during the corona pandemic to support women.
It should be noted that so far only people in leadership positions have benefited from coaching at Münster University. But now we are going one step further - a great opportunity for all women to find their way. Because honestly, every one of us occasionally finds ourselves caught between two stools and needs external support, be it in making decisions, dealing with stress, conflicts and more.
What is special about this event is that two support methods from the field of human resource development will be compared with each other, allowing interested women not only to get to know and better understand the two methods, but ultimately to choose the most suitable solution for their concerns.
Why do we recommend coaching and collegial guidance?
Personal growth: Coaching and peer counselling help to realise one's full potential and promote personal growth.
Self-reflection: Both options enable self-reflection and help to understand one's own needs and goals.
Solution orientation: Coaching and counselling offer practical tools for overcoming challenges and problems.
Self-confidence and self-efficacy expectation: Both options strengthen self-confidence as well as self-efficacy expectation and support in concern-just decision-making.
The programme is funded by the Equity Office of the University of Münster. Find out more about the programme here!
August 2023 - WOL - Working out loud
On 29th August 2023 Katharina Krentz presented "WOL - Working out loud" in an inspiring way. This method does not stand for working out loud, but for working outwards. Learning works best through voluntariness and enthusiasm and so the participants had the opportunity to get an insight into the WOL programme, the so-called "Circle", in two short breakout sessions.
The success of this method is particularly due to the shared attitude of the participants, who ideally are not active in the immediate (work) environment and come together with ideas, curiosity and the willingness to share. This was also the case in this event. The participants from the departments and the administration were very enthusiastic about the results achieved in the tightly scheduled and clearly structured exercises. In a very short time, relationships were built, the network expanded, one's own work made visible, and in turn, added value was created for the network.
All participants can look forward to a continuation, which we will inform about shortly.
