From Exhaustion back to Excellence
“On balance, my academic work is costing me energy, not bringing energy!”
Let’s be honest for a sec: does this apply to you? Let’s be even more honest for a moment: do you feel like ‘excellence’ does not apply to you? Do you recognize yourself in someone who started out as a smart cooky eager to learn and thrive. Have you turned into someone who feels… er… anxious at times, worn-out maybe, clearly alienated from your ‘original you’?
Well,… experience teaches that it’s all about the lens with which you view your situation…
So, how will you get your energy back? Your inspiration? Your joyous feeling of being able to work with sharp minds and clever cookies, and to contribute to your field and academic networks in a profound manner?
Why Academic Authenticity Helps
Academic Authenticity Coaching and Training helps you to:
- remember your most playful and energetic self
- get serious, and productive, about what you are trying to reach in your field as a researcher, teacher, and leader* (* if you have ever organized a workshop, taught a class, shared your views with a colleague, no worries: you count as an academic leader)
- signal your energy leaks, in order for you to choose your actions and program selectively and deal with your unavoidable energy leaks with a heightened sense of humor
- get in flow, and learn how to navigate the predictable and necessary phases of no-flow (do remember: without silence music is a cacophony…)
Academic Authenticity is here to get you back on your inspired track
You will be in touch with your ideals and your personal goals. You will analyze the lens with which you observe your work, your self and your academic surroundings. This way, you’ll become aware of (or… remember) what is nurturing to you, and what is in between your ‘excellent you’ and ‘the you’ you are experiencing now.
By taking you, your talent, your intuition, your passions and your goals as a point of departure, work will become inspiring and pleasant again. By finding out what you have and want to offer, and appreciating the value of what you have to offer, you will (re)discover how to enjoy your work and your academic relationships with your students, colleagues and supervisors.
