Lecturer: Dr. Debbie Coetzee-Lachmann
has more than twenty years’ experience in teaching business and academic English to students and professionals in South Africa, Belgium and Germany. As language and communication trainer and consultant, her work focuses on the challenges we face in terms of our communication and interaction in multicultural and multilingual academic and professional settings.

We all take on different roles in the course of our careers. We may change from being a team member to being the team leader, from having a position in academia to having one in industry or from being an employee to being an employer. Each role affects our professional relationships and the expectations our professional environment holds of us.
To illustrate:
• Being promoted to head of a team may lead to unexpected conflicts with former colleagues.
• Industry sometimes requires a different set of professional values than academia does.
• Owning one’s own company instead of working for someone else usually has far-reaching consequences for one’s level of responsibility and autonomy.

These types of changes require an acute awareness of our roles and professional relationships and the ability to negotiate these openly and confidently.

This workshop offers you the opportunity to practice strategies used in defining and communicating professional roles. We will also practice ways of negotiating roles, expectations and relationships – and approaches to handling conflicts that may arise in the process.

The workshop will be structured as follows:
09:00 – 12:00: Introductory session
13:00 – 16:00: Individual online coaching sessions + group sessions
16:00 – 17:00: Wrap-up session
Doctoral candidates and postdocs. Participants should have at least a higher intermediate competence level in English.
