Lost momentum?  Having difficulty managing your research in an efficient way?  Need motivation and strategies to complete your thesis?

This workshop will offer information to graduate students on how to:

  • Efficiently structure the thesis or dissertation process for timely completion,
  • Manage the emotional roller coaster, and
  • Find support when your motivation ebbs.

Led by Dr. Dwight Moore, Industrial Psychologist and coach to corporate executives, you will learn the principles of "self-leadership" to decrease the time it takes to complete your dissertation and increase your enjoyment of the process. 

Instructor:  Dr. Dwight Moore received his Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in 1984 and is licensed to practice psychology in British Columbia and the State of Washington.  Starting as a Marketing Director for a ski area, he completed his master’s degree and served as the Associate Dean of Students in a small university in Ohio for four years. Then he worked for Wiley and Associates doing executive assessments and coaching for the General Mills Corporation. From 1985-1992 he functioned as an Industrial Psychologist, assessing and coaching executives in Minnesota and British Columbia. Since 1992 he has been the President of his own firm specializing in coaching, assessment, and organizational development.
