Postdoc Academy Workshop: Productivity and Managing Your Workload

Thu 16 May 2024


Being able to effectively manage your workload in a proactive and realistic way is key to a successful research career.

Understanding task and relationship management techniques can help you better balance the demands on your time as a postdoc, as well as reducing your stress.

In this interactive half-day workshop, you will learn practical techniques that you can implement to consistently improve your day-to-day productivity.

By the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • manage your activities more proactively through planning and negotiation
  • feel more confident in how to prioritise, make decisions, and say no
  • better manage your email and meeting habits.

Bring your productivity issues to the session ready for some practical troubleshooting!
