 How to survive and thrive in a research career!

Don't miss this exclusive online session with international speaker, researcher and coach Hugh Kearns

The highs and lows, the wins and the losses are all part of the cycle of life in research. The rewards can be outstanding but physical and emotional burnout is rife.

Join international author, speaker, researcher and coach Hugh Kearns, from Thinkwell, as he unpacks the tools you need to navigate the challenges of your research journey and come out on top. 

Hugh has successfully coached individuals, teams and executives around the world. He is widely recognised for his ability to take the latest research in psychology and education and apply it to high-performing people and groups, with an expert focus on self-management, positive psychology, work-life balance, learning and creativity. Previous workshops have been sold out so don’t miss your opportunity to meet Hugh in this popular online event.

Surprisingly, for many who haven’t experienced it, a research career can be an emotional rollercoaster as the perceived calm of white coats and pristine laboratories gives way to the relentless pressure of tight deadlines, multiple projects, tough competition, rigorous scrutiny and the insecurities of funding.

This workshop presents evidence-based strategies specifically designed to support researchers working in all areas of academia and industry.

Hugh will share proven techniques and inspiring tips to help you:

  • Deal with uncertainty, focusing on what you can control
  • Saying no – it’s often hard – how to weigh-up commitments and their impact
  • Work more effectively with people because everyone is different
  • Manage cognitive inaccuracies to more rationally assess situations
  • Balance your standards depending on the context
  • Be kind to yourself – after all, you are more than your research!
