Dissertation Success Program
Share |

This is it -- the train is leaving the station!

We’ve spent the past 5 years teaching professors how to win tenure in our Faculty Success Program, and every year graduate students have asked us for a program that is specifically designed for dissertation writers. We hear you, we've created it, and registration for our new Dissertation Success Program ENDS this Friday

In case you missed our preview call, the Dissertation Success Program is for graduate students who are focused on finishing their dissertations this year. We’re clear that there is one -- and only one -- way to complete a dissertation: WRITE IT!

But there are three things that keep dissertation writers from actually writing: 1) procrastination, 2) perfectionism, and 3) a profound sense of isolation.  The program will teach you how to navigate around these barriers in the context of a supportive community. Specifically, you will learn to:

  • Develop and maintain a daily writing routine
  • Systematically plan weekly writing goals
  • Understand the writing process
  • Develop positive writing rituals
  • Identify and overcome academic perfectionism
  • Track research and writing time for ongoing self-assessment
  • Belong to a community of supportive and productive academic writers
  • Create a local and extended network of mentors for long-term success

Don't sit on the fence much longer! We encourage you to register now and join us for the Dissertation Success Program.


Peace and Productivity,

What Graduate Students are Saying About the Dissertation Success Program

"It Has Been 'Life-Changing' "


Michele Crespo-Fierro City University of New York

    "I am so happy to be a part of this program. It has come into my professional life at a time when I was in great need of support and prodding. My work had stalled because of multiple dissertation-related, work-related and personal-related pressures that could just not be managed in a 24-7 time frame. I had also suffered a serious rethinking of my mentor network. My situation remains that there are few outlets to fully discuss my situation BUT the coaches of DSP and Kerry Ann's weekly blogs and homework assignments have helped me to stay focused and not let distraction get bigger than they need to be or take longer than necessary. I have a framework to easily jump back into each an every time. Being able to connect with others in the process and there being no judgement (yes!) makes it so easier to put things out there, process and move on AND being able to "help" someone else is incredibly rewarding and motivating. When my executive dean asked what we thought of NCFDD, I responded that it has been "life-changing" and it has. Thank you! "
