Confidence, Honesty, and Realism

Who should attend

This workshop examines common concerns for researchers, with a focus on imposter syndrome and managing expectations of ourselves and others. We will discuss which concerns are realistic and which ones need challenging. You will be invited to use your own experience to work through simple models and concepts in order to be more proactive and confident in work and life.

Key areas

  • Assessing whether the thoughts and concerns you have about being a researcher are ‘normal’, and should you act on them?
  • Working through different approaches to challenge limiting beliefs and increase your ability to adapt.
  • Learning what has helped or hindered fellow postdocs progress and produce high quality work.

For this programme, you can request to be added to our waiting list if the programme dates are listed as "fully booked".
