Seminarier och workshops

Academic productivity for post docs – from efficiency to effectiveness, November 15, 2021, 9.00–12.00 (online, in English)

This workshop provides you with a toolbox for moving from efficiency to effectiveness as a post doc. The background to this workshop is that we often focus on the content of our work but sometimes forget to pay attention to our own work process or how we work, think and act. However, the process is central in order to complete our work on time and feel well during the process. More specifically, you will learn three academic productivity tools; the 80/20 principle, end product focus and the unit method, and apply them to your own work situation. For more information and application.

How to Get the Most out of Small Talk, December 10, 2021, 14.00–17.00 (on campus, in English)

Unfortunately, many people find the social aspects of these events intimidating or uncomfortable. In this workshop, we will explore the many aspects of successful small talk, suggesting strategies and providing practice. Participants will engage in a number of activities designed both to get them thinking creatively about social encounters and to give them practice in meeting new people in a stimulating and fun atmosphere. For more information and application

Good things don’t come to those who wait – Dealing with procrastination and deadlines in academia, May 20, 2022, 9.00-–12.00 (on campus, in English)

Procrastination refers to our tendency to purposefully delay an activity despite being worse off for the delay. It is particularly prevalent in academic settings, especially when deadlines are missing or up to you to decide. However, procrastination has less to do with traits and character, and more to do with the psychology behind motivation and behavior. This workshop gives you an overview of why we procrastinate and how to overcome it, with a specific focus on working in academia. The aim is not only to understand why we postpone the things that need to get done, but to get a few strategies that will help you bridge the gap between intention and action. The workshop is lead by Alexander Rozental, a Licensed Psychologist and Associate Professor at the Department of Psychology at Uppsala university. He is the author of a Swedish self-help book on procrastination (”Dansa på deadline”) and a researcher on the treatment of procrastination. For more information and application


Individual coaching for a sustainable career (in Swedish or English)

We offer individual coaching for researchers, teachers and leaders at Uppsala University to promote a sustainable working life and career. Coaching is a reflective process that can deal with a variety of topics. We often encounter topics like; work life balance, making decisions, dealing with relationships, managing motivation and goals, coping with rejections and change, staying in or leaving academia, finding out what I really want to do in my working life and a range of other questions. Coaching is about reflecting and creating clarity on issues that are important to you and the intention is to develop your ability to see opportunities, clarify driving forces and skills, and create your own basis for taking decisions and actions. The agenda is set by you and the point of departure is your own needs. Coaching is confidential. Meetings can be in person, via Zoom, or simply a walk in the park. For booking and more information
