Specializing in helping scientists prepare for and navigate career and role transitions in and between academia, private sector and non-profits.

Have you ever wished you could get experience-based feedback, guidance or coaching from someone who really understands the challenges you face? 

Now you can. Dr. Carl M. Cohen offers one on one coaching for scientists seeking to become better managers and for science managers seeking to become better leaders.  

Carl has held scientific, management and leadership positions in academia and in the biotechnology industry for over 25 years. As a Professor and academic laboratory head and subsequently as a senior biotechnology executive Carl has mentored hundreds of scientists and helped them transition from the lab to leadership positions. (See Carl's resume here).  

During the workshops that Carl runs he is often asked "Do you provide individual training or coaching to help scientists advance and develop into managers and leaders?"  The answer is "Yes."

There are many situations where where coaching can help:

  • You seek guidance or help in preparing for a major transition in your career.
  • You want to prepare for a new managerial or leadership role.
  • You wish to improve your ability to motivate and lead others.
  • Your work is being hampered by interpersonal conflicts or misunderstandings.
  • You need to find a way to make progress despite working in a dysfunctional organization.

Coaching format

Our coaching process typically takes place over a three to twelve month period, but no contract for a specific number of sessions is required. You and the coach will meet in person, by phone (most common) or via video call for 50 minute sessions, one to four times a month.
