Becoming a Resilient Scientist: Unit 4 - Feedback Resilience
About this event
We all need feedback to grow and learn but we often become defensive and are unable to learn from the feedback we receive, even if it is delivered well. In this webinar, we will talk about why receiving feedback is so difficult and explore ways to stay calm and engaged when receiving feedback. We will also talk about giving feedback in a calm and assertive way so that our voice can be heard.
The goal of this series is to provide you with the resilience tools needed to study and work in high-knowledge environments. The material will help you develop well-being, assertiveness, and feedback skills with the goal of improved relationships in research groups and beyond. The series is helpful for trainees and fellows at all levels. The series is also helpful for fellows who supervise others and wish to develop strong mentoring skills for the future.
There are five sessions in the series. Each session includes a lecture followed by a facilitated small group discussion allowing you to share your experiences and learn from peers. The series is offered in the fall for current NIH trainees and fellows and in the summer for NIH summer interns; we also welcome students and fellows from outside the NIH. While it is best to attend the entire series, you may attend individual sessions. Trainees who participate in all five lectures and attend at least four small group discussions will receive a certification of completion.

How to attend
This is a hybrid event, held in person on the NIH Bethesda campus. We strongly encourage local participants to join us in person as there are substantial benefits to networking with colleagues, taking a walk across campus, and getting out of the research space. We also encourage trainees and fellows on other campuses to gather for “watch parties” for the same reasons.
Registration information is provided below.
