Talent and behavior

Goal: Gain insight in your talents and behavioral preferences.

During this workshop, we will use the DiSC-model. This is a model based on 4 colors representing types of behavior. DiSC is a simple and powerful tool to provide insight in behavioral preferences, motives and communication style as well as your pitfalls. You will learn to recognize certain types of behavior and use this to the benefit of yourself. This insight will make it easier to communicate, collaborate and show leadership.

Talent under pressure

Goal: Gain insight on the use of your talents in teamwork and introducing tools to give feedback in hierarchic situations.

The behavioral preferences you have learned about in the previous workshop, are also of benefit in the collaboration with your supervisor and other colleagues. During this workshop, you will focus on these collaborations and you will learn how to use your talents for optimal teamwork. Moreover, you will learn the value of knowing the behavioral preferences of your colleagues. The second part of the workshop concerns feedback: giving feedback in a way that suits you and so that the other person can really benefit from it, even in hierarchical situations. This part of the workshop particularly focusses on the working relationship between PhD candidate and supervisor.
