Postdoc/Grad Discussion for Building Resilience - Talking with your PI/Difficult Conversations

Discussion Group/Brown Bag: Personal Development; Wellness

Aug 16, 2019

Speaker(s): Annie Scheiner, LCMFT, OITE Wellness Advisor
This event is recommended for: Graduate Students; Postdocs/Fellows.

Holding productive conversations with  PIs (and other important mentors) about careers, projects, papers, and personal needs can be challenging.  Do you need to open a difficult dialog with your PI or other mentor, but not sure where to start?  It could be that you’ve decided to change your career path and don’t know how to tell your research mentors,  or that you want to negotiate about leave time, the order of authors on a paper, or setting a defense date.  Whatever the situation, we want to help you turn a potentially stressful conversation into a positive interaction. 

Please join us on Friday, August 16th at 10:15am for a discussion with OITE Wellness Advisor, Annie Scheiner in Building 2/Room 2W15.  The discussion group provides a welcoming and confidential space to explore positive and proactive ways to build resilience and self-care skills. Even if you can't join us for the entire hour, we encourage you to still attend.  We would rather you come late or leave early, than not come at all.
