  • Experience

Working to develop myself professionaly also extends to my free time. I have participated in a number of courses to extend my capabilities.

Leadership for engineers

In order to be better prepared for a carreer with decisionmaking responsibility, I elected to enroll in the Leadership for Engineers track at DelftX, an initiative by the Technische Universiteit Delft. While the courses do not offer actual leadership experience, they do offer a theoretical framework that will help me become more effective as a leader. All certificates in the program were achieved with 90%+ scores.

This course helped me form a framework for cooperation in networks and provided techniques for enhancing my communication skills targeted at achieving business goals.

LEfE3x: Influencing Stakeholders: Communicating Effectively: How to Inspire and Convince

The final course on this professional certificate track helped me find ways to enhance the way in communicate in speech and in writing, in order to improve collaboration and understanding.
