Moje is your partner through all ups and downs in your academic career. It is our passion to foster emotional intelligence behind the knowledge, because the secret behind excellence with more ease and a sense of freedom lies in yourself.

2. Individual coaching for more clarity, focus and ease in untenured academic positions

Why coaching?

Have you encountered overwhelm due to unclear future career prospects and frequent change of location? Do you sometimes doubt you are good enough to survive in this system and equally doubt there are (interesting) possibilites outside of academia? You are tired of having to do it all and all perfectly at all times? Do you feel lonely and unsupported in a competitive work environment? 

I know. I’ve experienced each of those myself. These stopping points can hold us back from making the contribution we are uniquely positioned to make with our research in a time when our evidence-based solutions are so dearly needed in the world.

Coaching provides a safe, confidential space for you to look at and move beyond the places you’ve previously stopped yourself due to adverse outer circumstances. 

What you get

People who work with me begin to see that they know what they want and have what they need to create it - regardless of what is going on around them.

Specific results include:

  • Focus on what's important to you and the joy of doing research.
  • Serenity and a sense of freedom independent of external structural challenges
  • True collaboration and scientific teams with interpersonal connection
  • Clarity about your own research niche
  • Self-confidence and confident positioning/communication in hierarchical, insecure systems
  • More balance and stability through clear prioritisation

Are we a fit?

Coaching is not for erveryone.


Coaching is not free, nor cheap for two reasons:

  1. Working with me requires significant commitment: not primarily time, but the decision to irreversibly change your way of thinking and approaching life, not only for reaching your own career goals but primarily for being able to do fulfilling and meaningful work that rings true regardless of the outer (career) circumstances.
  2. To create a space that supports you at the highest level, I make the same significant commitment to your vision. That makes us a powerful team set up for success.

If this is too much, I understand. Now is probably not the time.

So are we a fit? If you have read this far and are still interested, we may be. You aren't quite sure where to start, let's find time to chat: Contact me for a free discovery session.
