    The peer review groups are meant to reflect on real life situations in which you were struggling and for which you want to find possible solutions. By discussing these situations with peers you will learn a lot about yourself as well as how others deal with situations. Examples of such situations are dealing with colleagues who do not honor agreements or with difficult meetings. Thus, the emphasis of these meetings are not on the contents of your PhD, rather, it is about your personal development.
