Steer your own career

 

Facilitator: Anna Lee, Leed Consulting
Target group: All women
Date: Tuesday 26 July
Time: 9.30am – 1.00pm
Location: Training Room (AU2-02), 101 Currie Street

In 2022, planning what you’re going to do tomorrow can feel overwhelming – planning the next phase of your life and career can feel almost impossible.

Whether you’re crystal clear on your career goals, or your only career goal is ‘to stay employed’, this workshop will help you:

  • reflect on what YOU (not your boss, your colleagues or your family!) want out of your life and career
  • identify specific, realistic steps you can take on a regular basis to bridge the gap between the present and your desired future
  • work out how you’ll overcome barriers and obstacles, so that you know what to do when they inevitably arise
  • practice using a simple, effective tool for goal-setting that leaves SMART goals dead in the water.

Advanced Negotiation Skills for Senior Women

Facilitator: Gary Edwards
Target group: Level C+ & HEO8+
Date: Wednesday 2 and Thursday 3 November
Time: 9.30am – 1.00pm
Location: Training Room (AU2-02), 101 Currie Street

Negotiation is the art and science of securing a win-win agreement between two or more independent parties. We negotiate every day with our work colleagues, our bosses, and our research collaborators, as well as with students and stakeholders within and external to the university. Although people negotiate all the time, most people know very little about the framework, skills and psychology of effective negotiations.

Negotiations come in all shapes and sizes: formal or informal, quick or slow, friendly or difficult. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to prepare for and carry out a successful negotiation in any situation. Gary Edwards will provide you with the framework that applies to every negotiation, and a range of tools and strategies that you can use in any situation.

Learning outcomes:

After completing the two part workshop, you will be able to:

  • Identify the underlying components and framework of a negotiation
  • Understand the pitfalls and traps that can lead you astray in a negotiation
  • Mange your own emotions and respond to different levels of emotion from the other party
  • Use a range of techniques to prepare for and carry out a negotiation in a range of situations
  • Understand how gender biases and stereotypes can affect negotiations, and how to counter the adverse affects and capitalise on the positives

As an academic with UniSA for 7 years, Gary taught young lawyers the practical communication skills they need in practice, and has worked with SA Police on conflict resolution and negotiation programs, including as part of a team developing the competency standards for police hostage negotiators.

Engaging Well with the Media

Facilitator: Candy Gibson, UniSA's Media Liaison Coordinator, Communications & Marketing Unit, Professor Jennifer McKay, Dr Dot Dumuid, Dr Lesley-Anne Ey
Target group: Level A-C Academic Women
Date: Thursday 8 December
Time: 9.30am – 11.30am
Location: Training Room (AU2-02), 101 Currie Street

What if I told you that there’s one thing you do as an academic that will:

  1. increase your research profile,
  2. share expert knowledge with the community and help bust myths,
  3. increase awareness and interest in your research problem or field,
  4. promote UniSA as a place of enterprising knowledge creation and community connection.

Effective media engagement can achieve all these things and more.

In a time of ever increasing mistrust of many media outlets and sources, and limited opportunities to gather in person and share ideas, it is more important than ever for the world’s research and academic communities to share their expertise with journalists and the public.  

Yet so few of us feel comfortable engaging with the media, or even know when and how to start.

This session explores approaches to media engagement and why it’s so important for you, the University, and the community.

Learning outcomes:

  • understanding of the media supports available,
  • stories and tips from successful academics on what’s worked and what hasn’t for them in media interviews,
  • discussions around how and when to get started,
  • opportunity to discuss your ideas/work for media translation/engagement with colleagues and panel of experts.
