The post-doc committee is proud to present this workshop for research staff, to be held in LR 11 on Tuesday 16th of September, 2-5.30pm.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the most widely used personality instrument worldwide, based on over 50 years’ research and development. It presents a framework for understanding yourself and others and how you can use that understanding to develop personally and our relationships with others.

This workshop is run by Katie Hewitt, a qualified MBTI practitioner, and will include:

  • completion of the MBTI questionnaire
  • investigating the four areas of preference covered by MBTI
  • self-assessment of type with group exercises
  • looking at your best fit type and investigating how it could help you at work.

Learning about your personality type can help you to understand your role within your team and the role of others. It can also help you to cope with organisational change, deal with stress effectively and develop your emotional intelligence.

Surveys in CUED have revealed that Mentoring is a key area where teaching and research staff would like to see improvements.

As part of an ongoing development process, the CUED Post-Doc Committee is delighted to present this workshop on Mentoring, for both post-docs and faculty.

Mentoring is frequently requested but rarely implemented. The practice of being a mentor and/or mentee can be hugely beneficial for both sides and something that can be brought in to many professional relationships. This session will introduce you to what mentoring is and is not, how to set up a mentoring relationship and how to get the most out of it. Come along ready to get involved and start using some tools and strategies in the workshop including how to contract, get the most out of conversations, and be a good mentor or mentee.

Tea and Coffee will be provided.
