Description:

What are your personal beliefs about intelligence and talent? What do you say to yourself when you make a mistake? These questions are particularly relevant when conducting research, where failure and mistakes are the stepping stones to discovery. Often when we’re struggling, our inner monologues can become critical and it takes practice to shift our mindsets about things like unsuccessful grant proposals and unexpected experimental outcomes. Believe it or not, the mindset we have and the way we talk to ourselves when we’re approaching difficult tasks has a big impact on our academic success and personal well-being. In this workshop we will learn how to develop a growth mindset and reframe our automatic thoughts that can often be negative to help promote academic and professional success as well as personal wellbeing.
