Lang EN Workshop language is English

Dr Thomas Teichler


As a doctoral candidate or researcher, you may face an increasing demand on your time: there is a continuous flow of tasks, emails, and meetings calling for your immediate attention next to your own ambitious projects. Moreover, there is the mental pressure resulting from working from home.

All this may result in unrealistic expectations on what can be achieved in a day. Eventually, even high performers struggle to stay motivated and to deliver and end up depleted until, inevitably, performance will drop. Then it is important to rebound quickly. Our Workouts are highly experiential and intensive. You work on your own life situation. Therefore, we ask you to bring a story to share that is relevant to the topic. In each Workout, you will learn how to shift your mindset, acquire one or two state-of-the-art techniques for your self-management, and create a practice that will help you to navigate stressful situations in the future. They workouts two and half hours and are limited to 18 participants. Every Workout is a standalone training that can be taken without attending the other Workouts.

In the workplace more often than not we find ourselves in situations where we would like to say 'No' ...yet we end up saying 'yes', often out of fear of hurting people or destroying important relationships. Often we later regret our failure to establish clear and firm boundaries. In this workout, participants will learn the important art of giving a 'positive no' through a simple and proven three-step technique.


Learning Outcomes:

In this Workout participants can:

  • Acquire an increased self-awareness about setting boundaries
  • Share with other participants about their experiences
  • Get to know three ways of how to respond to unexpected requests, and
  • Practiced giving a 'positive no' through a simple and proven three-step technique.
