More than ever, becoming a successful researcher requires you to demonstrate self-leadership.

In other words, a professional researcher must exhibit attributes such as self-direction, persistence and proactivity, the capability to think creatively and ethically, and an understanding of your own and others' needs and wants. This half-day workshop introduces you to the concept of self-leadership and how it can be applied to PhD research.

You may find it useful to take this workshop alongside Developing your Leadership.


  • Be aware of the political economy of higher education and how it impacts PhD students
  • Understand how asymmetric insight can distort our perceptions of other people
  • Know about ethical approaches to research and collaboration
