Prioritizing, optimization of processes, delegating, automating, efficient communication, AI tools
Course Description: 

Usually, scientists don’t do their research for the money but because they are passionately curious and feel the drive to explore. The clutter of daily work life can often sabotage this drive: doing paperwork, waiting for equipment/time slots/co-workers, or getting assignments not related to your project at all.
The assumption for this workshop is that you like what you do. Therefore, this workshop aims to identify ways and strategies that allow you to spend most of your time doing what you like – and reduce the time you spend on doing ‘the rest.’
This “work”shop provides a toolset that you can apply in your daily work life. The methods and approaches presented are only those that also the trainer uses. Not all the tools will fit all individual situations, but with multiple tools, the chances are good that some of them will work for you. Of course, situations only change if the topics covered in this training are applied in real life. Therefore, you will be asked to work on your situation and identify possibilities for action throughout the training.

Course aims: 
  • Prioritizing at work
  • Automating time-consuming processes
  • Delegating properly to save time
  • AI Tools for literature and research
  • Efficient communication
