For doctoral researchers and postdocs of all disciplines.


Objectives and Content

Time management experts often point to saying no as an important part of keeping on track and meeting your goals – but it can feel impossible in the moment. Building confidence in turning down requests from colleagues and supervisors that collide with our work and goals is a key to success in academia – and beyond. Learn how to feel more comfortable saying no at work. Explore how to manage requests from others that feel unrealistic or make it difficult for you to get your own work done, and come up with a strategy that truly works for you.

•    How can I best manage requests from colleagues or my supervisor(s) when
     their expectations don’t align with my schedule?
•    What do I do to feel confident about saying no? How do I know when to say yes?
•    How do I set realistic priorities that are in line with my goals?
