Procrastination: A workshop for grad students

"Procrastination is the thief of time." —Edward Young Procrastination can feel like a major hurdle to overcome throughout your graduate and professional career. You are not alone! Procrastination is a vicious cycle that we all suffer from time to time. In this workshop we will discuss: why we procrastinate, what it really means when we do, and how our brains are involved. We’ll also cover effective ways to restructure your life and schedule to minimize procrastination and increase motivation.

Management Matters: Session 2

Management Matters is a comprehensive, three-session workshop focuses on simple principles and guidelines that, once learned, can make the process of managing others enjoyable and effective, and help you succeed in whatever career path you choose.

Session 2: Making Expectations Clear

Clear expectations are the basis for all effective management and, remarkably, are as crucial to managing “up” as to “down.” We will build on the first session to determine how to establish clear expectations with people of different styles and in different roles.
