Opening

How to improve your Negotiation Skills

Do you want to learn specific skills and attitudes to improve your professional relationships? Do you want to increase your own negotiation capacities, enabling you to be more efficient? The strength of this approach to negotiation comes from its simplicity and proven efficiency. Highly practical, it helps you see negotiation more as a puzzle than a chess game for better results. The negotiation process is broken down into specific manageable units, each being a separate technical module with its own tools and techniques.

Dr. Jeanette Müller

The successful acquisition of European funding for research and innovation projects has become a critical milestone in the career development of talented scientists working in academia. In particular, Horizon 2020, the largest innovation funding scheme ever in Europe and beyond, is a meaningful source of third party monies for researchers based in Switzerland – despite its current Third Country status which is likely to change in 2017, opening up even more opportunities. The Coaching Funding module offers individualised coaching for female scientists on career planning and research funding. More specifically, the one-two-grant training on EU funded projects and proposals supports researchers in identifying suitable EU funding opportunities and in preparing competitive proposals. It consists of one-to-one meetings, developing project outlines and individual table plans covering all aspects relevant to successful grant applications.

Andrea Kindt

Andrea Kindt studied political and communication sciences in Munich. As literary and artistic director at the Kammerspiele theater in Munich, and in her work to support the theater’s public relations, she gained extensive experience in the areas of text, communications and dramatization. This was followed by successful productions of her own TV and film projects and ultimately the foundation of her own company, Linchpin, which provides integrated communications consultancy services.

Today, Andrea Kindt advises managers on public speaking and body language in the workplace and for presentations. Her coaching sessions focus on teaching participants to demonstrate confidence with their words and through the impression they make. This relies on self-portrayal that is appropriate to the situation and the role of a manager, and on successful communication within the workplace.


Career Toolbox

The career toolbox gives you the opportunity to apply for a grant of up to CHF 1,000 to fund a measure of your choice to promote your career and optimize your skills portfolio. You may request a financial subsidy for a measure that can be implemented quickly and easily, starting from your personal potential and individual needs. This measure can be based in different fields and relate to technical and interdisciplinary, interpersonal, methodological and analytical, and social skills. Specifically, it could involve: media training, manuscript or  negotiation coaching sessions, meetings with experts.


Networking

In addition to the promotion of excellent female scientists, antelope aims to provide spaces for networking and the exchange of ideas. An optional service is therefore provided for this purpose.
