HOW WE DIFFER
The principles of grant writing can be taught in many ways, from a 90-minute seminar with a bullet point to “Write clearly”, to a full-day lecture including grant mechanisms and budgets. We take a modular approach that combines the direct efficiency of a lecture format with interactive and reflective approaches scaled to the size of the audience. Our philosophical approach is to focus on the fundamentals—the “why” beneath the “how”—while also providing concrete and actionable tools that can impact both the proposal and the person. Writing a winning grant application requires more than clear organization and word-smithing on the page. It requires that the applicant is ready to go, will be seen as the right person, and has both the right idea and a clear plan for executing a successful project
Faculty development: Leadership skills are rarely taught to research faculty, and often the language used by the business world doesn’t translate easily for scientists and scholars. We base our coaching work on proven methods, adapted for the academic research environment. We can support faculty as they start their careers or are ready to acquire the skills for leading larger teams.
