As we step into the world of leadership, it’s essential to have a clear understanding of what makes a good leader, and how we can develop the skills required to lead effectively. In this webinar, we will explore the fundamental traits that distinguish successful leaders from the rest.

We will also delve into the concept of inclusive leadership, which is crucial for building diverse and high-performing teams. Inclusive leaders understand the importance of creating a safe and inclusive environment, where everyone feels valued and respected, regardless of their background. Moreover, we will discuss the strengths-based approach to leadership, which emphasizes building on individuals’ strengths and talents to foster personal and professional growth. By leveraging your unique strengths, you can establish a solid foundation for your leadership journey.


Whether you’re just starting your leadership journey or looking to enhance your existing leadership skills, this webinar will provide you with valuable insights and actionable strategies to help you become a more effective and inclusive leader. 

It’s never been more important to tackle inclusion in engineering. Checking the data we see women in engineering education stuck at 16% and a persistent awarding gap for students from historically marginalized backgrounds such as Black British students. Compulsory diversity training hasn’t made a difference. And Athena SWAN, while raising awareness and gathering data hasn’t had the desired impact. In fact, we may even be seeing a reversity in diversity. As majority white engineers feel disengaged and pull back from participating in programmes.

Bringing together the evidence and what we’d seen with our own eyes, and heard from senior engineers, we sought a new approach. And so our signature methodology R.I.S.E. was born.

In this webinar Jan will provide insights into the four different stages that need to be considered and introduce the tools and programmes needed to create a cultural shift so everyone feels valued, that they belong, and make a useful contribution.

Why your PhD can be hell and 3 things to boost your energy!

There’s no denying a PhD can be pretty intense. Periods of intense activity, followed by isolation as you lock yourself away in the library, and the indefinite end time. Not to mention likely lack of funding. As if that’s not enough, the intense relationship with your supervisor(s) can make for a downward slope to stress and burnout. And that’s even before our own inner chimp or snake gets to work, chipping away at our confidence.

Supervisors are the most researched issue around PhD problems. The biggest concern of students who just want a ‘good’ one’, and vital for your future academic career.

So if you are part of the 77% of PhD students who have experienced stress/sleep issues /anxious/depressed/irritable or sad; a supervisor looking for tips on helping your students; or just want to mitigate the inevitable, join Jan for some insights into how you can make peace with your inner serpent.

Knowing your strengths is key to having an enjoyable and successful career. It’s also a vital part of managing your well-being and satisfaction. Loving what you do, knowing what comes naturally to you, and becoming better and better at it, in turn, will create greater enjoyment, recognition, and progression.

Yet for most of us as soon as we become competent at something we dismiss it as being too easy. We ignore what we do best. It becomes just a habit. And we focus on other more difficult problems. While this can be helpful we end up becoming obsessed by the things we don’t have. And yet, others value the things that you have in you, and they don’t.

The best part of you is inside, hidden, ignored, and taken for granted. Join Katalytik for this insight into positive psychology and strengths to find out how you can see and enjoy the best version of you, that everyone else sees. Find out:
