Write here, right now – Coaching Workshop

Friday 15th February 2019

Writing is a huge part of research and yet, as a skill, the focus of training is often on how to produce scientific papers, whilst retreats tend to focus on blocking out the time and space to write.  That’s great and important. What about the experience of writing itself?  How can researchers learn to be productive, to keep writing and even enjoy the process?  Click here to read more!


Pause with Purpose – Coaching Workshop

Tuesday 26th February 2019

In the context of feeling rushed, under pressure and experiencing uncertainty, there is ironically a tendency to take on more, to focus on the urgent and to the let the important slip. The day draws on wide-range thinking from the worlds of life coaching and mindfulness in a wonderful blend
 of activities that invite you to step back, take stock, experience alternative perspectives, explore common challenges and identify your next steps. Click here to read more!

Thursday 21st March 2019

Sustaining your resilience and being the leader of your research is not always easy to pull off. This day offers an opportunity to examine your resilience, stepping back to re-align and plan the next steps in your research, recognising the need to keep the balance right with work and the rest of life. The day will build on questions around what’s at stake, choosing perspective, finding confidence, getting out of your own way and identifying habits that help and habits that hinder. Finally, what’s next will be explored in a way that energises! Click here to read more
