Every career is built on a variety of factors. Despite the conviction that expert recognition is the main constituent of an academic career, it is now commonly recognized that factors such as knowledge about university organization, transferable competencies, and scientific vision are increasingly important for the career planning process. During the workshop we will talk about frequently discussed as well as hidden career elements, expectations towards skills, self-presentation in the CV, and scientific vision.

Applying for a professor position can be a daunting process, and often, the different steps of this process are not well known. This workshop shows how the process works, from the moment the job announcement is formulated to the final decision of who receives the job offer. Moreover, and most importantly, this workshop shows what some of the most essential elements are that will help you increase your chances of success.
This workshop will help you to be well-prepared when you apply, by providing (some) answers to the following questions:

Given that the pursuit of well-being is fundamental, what should we do to be happier? We will explore this question in two meetings: session 1 will be devoted to understanding the foundations of well-being and how to enhance personal well-being; session 2 will focus on career well-being, with specific discussions about the idiosyncrasies of academia (e.g., completing a PhD or PostDoc, academic career, etc.).
You will soon discover that well-being can be learned but that it is necessary to invest some effort towards its achievement. We will thus complete several exercises and surveys that will tap into different aspects of well-being and are meant to give you a broad overview of possible ways to enhance well-being so that you can identify your preferred interventions and the best ways to apply them. At the end of the workshop you will be armed with a well-being toolbox that you can consult whenever you need.

Les femmes travaillant dans des entreprises organisées hiérarchiquement se retrouvent souvent dans des situations où elles ont l’impression que « quelque chose se passe ou se trame », sans toutefois comprendre de quoi il s’agit exactement ni connaître les règles du jeu. Elles sont mal à l’aise ou en colère et ne trouvent pas toujours les mots pour pouvoir réagir habilement ou même jouer le jeu. Cet atelier traite des codes et des pratiques tacites, et vise à donner aux femmes la liberté de décider, dans une situation concrète, si elles souhaitent jouer le jeu avec habilité ou se tenir à l’écart.
Trainer: Sibyl Schädeli, trainer and coach specialized in issues of leadership and power.
The workshop will be given in French. Participants can speak in French or English as preferred.
