Mental Clarity & Decision Making (K02-03)
Verfügbarkeit - Veranstaltung hat bereits stattgefunden
How do we create the mental clarity to make big decisions regarding career choices when academia leaves us with little time or energy and few resources to cope? We are left trying to make big life changing decisions from a place of self-doubt, emotional reactiveness, and exhaustion.
In this workshop, we look into the factors that impact on how we think and make decisions. Exploring the role that our biases, thinking patterns, and behavioural choices play in how we evaluate situations and interactions, and how we engage (or not) with certain individuals and environments. We examine the self-critical inner voices that make you think you do not belong, you can’t do it, and you shouldn’t apply yet.
Learn to question how your mindset can help or hinder your day-to-day life and your future career prospects; Push back on certain maladaptive coping strategies (e.g. procrastination and avoidance) once you see how they maintain your self-sabotaging thought and behaviour cycles. Also learn how to reshape your thinking and behaviour patterns to work for you in pursuit of your goals.
The workshop is driven by the needs of the specific group in session and tools and strategies are examined through working examples brought forward by the group.
