Master Your Workload

Wednesday 27 March 13:30 until 16:30
Arts A 071
Speaker: Dr Sarah Robins-Hobden (Learning and Development Consultant)
Part of the series: Researcher Development Programme

Competing priorities, tight timeframes, and a sense of feeling overwhelmed are common in research roles, where researchers are striving for consistently high standards in an increasingly competitive field. Defining what is important to you as a person, as well as in your research career, will empower you to make better decisions about your day-to-day workload, your long-term goals, and how to progress towards them. Directing and containing your efforts to key areas of personal and professional development with the most impact, will offer you a greater sense of control and fulfilment in all areas of your life. Cultivate your capacity for focus, and you will make more effective and productive use of your energy. In this workshop, you will review a range of strategies to reduce work-related stress in the research environment and empower you to free up time and attention for your own wellbeing.

Engaging with this workshop will enable you to:

  • Define your primary priorities and core values
  • Articulate your objectives and triage your projects and responsibilities accordingly
  • Take deliberate control of your time, your energy, and your workload
  • Feel more confident in making workload decisions that align with your goals
