Celebrating PAW where you are and with more online resources

Multi-institutional events

These events are organised by specific institutions but with some places available to all!

This event is organised by the University of Liverpool with limited places available for postdocs from other Universities.

It is sponsored by the Wellcome Trust and UKRI MRC. 

The Positive Approach (TM), wellbeing session

Monday 21 September 2020 | 10 am | online

Wellbeing session facilitated by Tallant Jones, a Liverpool based firm of business coaches and consultants specialising in employee engagement & personal performance in the workplace. The Positive Approach™ takes its lead from Positive Psychology, and shows people how to lead happier and more fulfilling lives. In this fast paced and motivating introductory workshop, postdocs will learn about Positive Approach™, and how this can help them to lead more contented, fulfilling and satisfying lives. Adapting or changing current habits can be tough - this workshop will show how brains can be trained and developed to help make new choices and new habits that will enable individuals to live a more fruitful and rewarding life.
