Introduction to Self-Leadership for PhD Students
New

Wed 23 Oct 2019

Description

More than ever, becoming a professional researcher – whether, for you, that means staying on in academia or bringing your research skills to another job sector – requires attributes like self-direction, persistence, and pro-activity; the willingness to think creatively and the capability to think ethically; an understanding of your own needs and wants, and empathy towards others. In other words, becoming a professional researcher requires you to demonstrate self-leadership.

This bite-sized workshop will introduce you to the concept of self-leadership and how it can be applied to PhD research. You may find it a useful workshop to do alongside Developing Your Leadership as a PhD Student.

Target audience

PhD students

Postdoctoral researchers and research staff may prefer to attend Postdocs: An Initial Guide to Leadership, which is tailored specifically to the postdoctoral experience.
