Motivation is the capacity to organize and act in the service of achieving an outcome, and it is essential for success in graduate school. But the way we motivate ourselves has very real consequences for both our health and well-being and for the quality of the work that we produce.
This talk will focus on the following key themes:
· Identifying and defining different types of motivation
· Discussing how motivation affects the work we produce
· Investigating how motivation can impact health and well-being
· Examining the interplay between these factors—motivation, work, and health and well-being—especially as they relate to graduate work
· Identifying strategies to cultivate and maintain healthy forms of motivation
