“As a highly spontaneous and direct person, I learned the value of adapting my behaviour to the individuals I have in front of me, for example, not necessarily using the terms that I personally would find motivating to congratulate or encourage them. I realized the importance of clearly explaining the pros and cons of my decisions, showing that I have considered all the options, to ensure that everyone feels they have been taken into consideration, realizing that no decision is perfect and without its downsides.”
“Research Game changed (and broadened) my vision of research. […] It made me want to evolve in the medium term towards aspects other than the purely scientific dimension. I have also decided to pursue certain other topics by reading books.”
“Now I am putting the accent on intra-personal aspects and working on building up my professional network.”
