About this Event

Which grad student doesn’t want to be effective, successful, and happy? But it’s not going to happen by magic. Drawing on cutting-edge research, join us to identify and explore key leadership skills and approaches for graduate study and career success. During the workshop, you will draw on your values to identify your key work success indicators, formulate the right priorities, learn to learn from every situation, and envision how to be more effective. These skills are key to being successful now and in the future as you build your leadership toolbox. Harnessing your passions, aspirations, and preferences - come to learn more about how you can sustain true success utilizing vital leadership skills.
