Description of the workshop
You are expected to perform despite high stress levels. You are expected to shine despite strong competition. You are expected to move fast despite scientifically challenging experiments. You are expected to succeed despite failing every once in a while.
What if we could not only accept failure but re-learn the wrong relationship we have with things that go wrong. What if we could start seeing the positive side of failing? What if we learned to see the enormous benefit of failure and could eventually enjoy what’s happening? What if there are tools and techniques that make a scientist’s life including failure still joyful and exciting instead of stressful and desperate?
It’s time to see failure as a chance to use as acquired learning and as a way to refine your strategies to come out better, stronger and more resilient. Together with Michaela Lindinger we will take a look behind the scenes and discover why failure gives us such a hard time. We will actively work on the factors and feelings that play a role in success as well as failure and define your personal way how to handle perfectionism, fierce academic competition and your fear of failure best possibly.
