Emotional Intelligence for A Successfull Academic or Non-Academic Career (409)
16 and 17 November 2020
|Lang||Workshop language is English|
Dr Tanja Wranik
Doctoral researchers face constant uncertainty and ambiguity, deal with diverse – and sometimes difficult - people, and push forward projects and ideas despite strong resistance and obstacles. In the most challenging times, this can lead to anxiety, frustration, anger, and even fear. When everything works out as planned, it can lead to pride, joy, or simply relief. Moods and emotions are an important part of working life. They motivate individuals, groups, and entire organizations and influence decision-making, relationships, performance, and health. A well-developed set of social and emotional skills will also help doctoral candidates enjoy and thrive in the stressful and politically charged university environment and pave the way towards a successful career, whether in academia or outside academia.
At the end of the workshop participants will be able to:
• Identify and describe moods, emotions, and other affective states
Participants should have at least 1.5 years of experience in the academic environment and feel comfortable speaking and collaborating with others in English.
Some self-reflection may be required before the workshop, however the main requirement is that participants come prepared to participate actively for the full two days. This is an interactive course in which the relationships and experiences shared within the group are just as crucial for the learning experience as the interaction with the professor.
