How to Win at Work: Making an Impact in Your Field

Presented by: Daniel Wong, Assistant Dean for Academic & Postdoctoral Services, Graduate Division, University of California, Los Angeles

How do we identify those tasks that are most important? How do we remain motivated to seek greater heights in work and life? Where do we begin when overwhelmed by tasks and obligations? This workshop presents the concept of “Deep Work” as a strategy for addressing these questions and more. Through an interactive workshop and discussion, we will explore why this strategy is an effective concept for achieving your goals; we will also address how to begin implementing it in our daily work and lives.
