Course description

The demanding and challenging phase of a PhD is often accompanied by a shortage of time, stress and conflicts on different levels. There are many balls to juggle while balancing your thesis, professional projects, teaching and private life all at once. Specifically, creating personal time and managing all your goals and challenges are the key to success. In this two-day time -, self - and stress management training you will learn and develop strategies, practical techniques and tools for:


  • organizing yourself within your environment effectively,
  • deal with the unplannable,
  • self-positioning in a nice but clear way and defining your goals to manage your time,
  • setting your priorities,
  • critically reflecting the way you work.

This training is all about identifying your personal stress triggers and finding new ways to cope with your stressors. You learn to clearly recognize some of your personal stress amplifiers, such as perfectionism, procrastination or the feeling of being alone on this journey. The training invites us to observe how we put ourselves under pressure time and time again and which inner attitudes lead us to behave as we do.


Positive reframing and recognition of your resources might point out your strengths and enable you to take the next necessary steps in your doctoral project. Furthermore, the training offers you the opportunity to exchange experiences with your postgraduate peers, discussion within groups and self-contemplation. Knowledge about stress and your personal stress reactions as well as strategies for relaxation and self-deceleration are added to your time and stress management toolkit.



Susanne Recknagel has a diploma in pedagogics and is qualified management consultant and trainer. She has practical experience in leading projects in industry.
