Attending biweekly people skill’s sessions has not only helped to suppress my anxiety relating to imposter syndrome, but it has positively impacted my life outside of work massively!
These sessions aim to teach us predominantly about becoming leaders in our workplaces. We conduct meetings, learn how to coach one another, and how to support ourselves best in a demanding programme (and career path) like this one. It has been a real eye-opener for me! Personally, I’ve seen great success being more mindful of my work-life balance. Collectively, we agree we all feel more comfortable having open and emotional discussions which have definitely brought us closer.
Generally, I feel very lucky to finally be studying somewhere that has an equal commitment to supporting scholars’ health an their technical progression. I’m excited to continue learning and growing alongside the rest of my cohort!
NB: the technical parts of the programme are also exceptional!
