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 during the lockdown.
All this may result in unrealistic expectations on what can be achieved in a day especially in times like these, when opportunities for balancing activities like sports or seeing friends are severely limited. 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.
The first Workout will help you to get out of the feeling of being overwhelmed by your tasks.
By the end of the Workout, you will :
- be able to recognize a situation in which you feel overwhelmed ;
- know what specific factors trigger the overwhelm ;
- acquire two simple yet effective tools to manage the situation in a new way: the choice mindset and the circle of influence. This will help you to prioritize and take decisions.
