Doctoral candidates enter the programs with big plans and often bigger dreams. They frequently sail through the doctoral program - they're very familiar with the role of being a student, even when being a student requires a great deal of self-direction. When they land their first job, however, there can be many competing and perhaps conflicting messages sent like "get at least 2 publications each year" or "don't let your evaluations drop below the departmental average". Most tenure-track faculty want to be more than adequate - they're used to excelling. But, which parts should I work to excel - everything? This book helps faculty (tenure-track, fully promoted, etc.) manage all of the competing messages. It could be thought of as a paperback life coach.

Book description
Grounded in research on neuroscience, faculty development, work productivity, positive psychology, and resilience, this faculty development guide is filled with the techniques and strategies that go beyond a discussion of work-life balance and teaching tips to offer practical tools for managing the life of the professor while maximizing his or her potential. Faculty who complete the book’s exercises are able to anchor their work, roles, and use of time in their most deeply held values, to integrate their personal and professional lives into a seamless garment, and to create a legacy of a life well-lived.
