How to apply

Detailed information about this course:


How do you get things done in such a complex organization as the Erasmus MC? As in any big organization there are formal procedures and informal channels. In this one day course you will get a better view of your political arena and the players in your field. You will understand your own challenges and you will be invited to step out of your comfort zone to make the impact you deserve. Body language, tone, voice, tempo and bearing discomfort are needed to increase your visibility. At the end of the day you will know who to approach, and how, to make the first step in achieving your goal.


In this course, students:

  • Have a view of their political arena and the players in their field;
  • Know who to approach and how to approach them for the next step;
  • Have physical tools to be more visible.
