Mental Fitness Workshop (DION, Gjøvik) 

We would like to remind all PhDs, postdocs and temporary employees at NTNU Gjøvik about the mental fitness workshop that will take place on November 15th, 17:00-19:00 in G303. The workshop will be held by Elizabeth Sturdy. Elizabeth is a Mindset Coach and the founder of Sturdy Coaching AS. She did this workshop for NTNU in Trondheim this past Thursday and here is some of the feedback they got: https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6995328648811560960/ 

A bit about her: I am an American who loves living in Trondheim – the international community, living in the city center and ALL the outdoor adventures. As founder of Sturdy Coaching AS, I provide mindset coaching and mental fitness training to the international community in Norway. My work is based on Co-Active and Positive Intelligence (PQ) Coach Training, 10 years as an educator, and my personal experience with burnout and mental health struggles while living in Norway.

Workshop Aim:

  • provide practical tools and insights to Ph.D. candidates struggling with overthinking, stress management, and feeling stuck.

Key Topics:

  • Identify negative thought patterns & explore their impact
  • Learn and practice building 3 mental fitness muscles
  • Learn tools to respond to life’s challenges from a positive mindset

Identifying your negative thought patterns or “saboteurs” is a key first step in building your mental fitness. In order to get the most out of our workshop, please take this 10-minute assessment prior to the workshop. https://assessment.positiveintelligence.com/saboteur/overview 

Please bring a pen to the workshop???. We look forward to getting to know you better and working with you this Tuesday at 17:00!
