You probably decided to do research to understand the exact mechanisms behind something, to solve a problem or to make the world a little bit better.
However, research also requires other skills that are not necessarily related to your qualities as a researcher. You will need to communicate: to network, to form alliances with others to apply for funding, and to pitch your research. And you will often need to work in a team with a diversity of people and personalities.
This is where Maris et al. can help you. Over the last decade, we’ve empowered over a thousand academics to improve their communication skills, their work-life balance and to stimulate diverse and inclusive workplaces. This has not only increased the impact of their work, but also gave their careers a boost.
