Identify personal challenges & relationship-building in the workplace
With the workforce becoming more competitive, the ability to manage expectations and emotions can, at times, seem overwhelming. The Managing Expectations & Emotions in Research workshop will focus on the expectations and emotions a career in academia presents for researchers. Through experiential and didactic teaching, participants will be assisted to reflect on their current well-being and identify any personal/academic/mental health challenges they may have. The roles of various professional relationships will be explored and participants will develop strategies to maximise these relationships. The workshop will also offer skills in stress management and resources to support researchers personally through their academic career.
