02-12-2019 13:00 02-12-2019 16:00 Vrije Universiteit - Kerkzaal (HG-16A00)

Hello fellow PhD-students and postdocs!

We would like to invite you all to our next workshop given by Ellis Vyth from Hertz:

'Workshop work-life balance'

Many PhDs and postdocs experience difficulties in maintaining a balance between all the different projects and tasks they have. This is not to mention the difficult balance between work and private life. It is all about making the right decisions, but these are often not very clear and are always very personal. In this workshop you decide on the tasks you are definitely going to pursue and those you would like to discard. Then you practise different ways of convincing your colleagues and supervisors. You will learn to say no in an effective and friendly way.

2nd of December, 13.00-16:00

Duration: 3h – Location: Kerkzaal* (HG-16A00) - Followed with drinks!
