Many struggle with where to start making changes and how to achieve their career and personal ambitions, meaning that it can be easier to reduce overwhelm by staying on the same path. This inertia is a natural, initial human response to change.

During this practical presentation, you will be actively encouraged to reflect on your life position as we explore key areas of personal development, such as emotional intelligence and IQ,  values, the benefits of a growth mindset and the wheel of life model to determine next steps and priorities.

In conclusion, this webinar will help you to get clear on what you want, reflect and draw on practical tools and key skills to help you clarify next steps, and reach your personal and professional goals.

Who should attend?

Suitable for aspiring, new and existing managers, this presentation will also be an insightful refresher for more senior leadership and those wishing to embed sustainable behavioural change by becoming more self-aware.

Specifically, this webinar is most suited to those who:

  • understand that without an appreciation of this critical dimension and skillset, they are at a disadvantage personally and in the workplace
  • understand that without an appreciation of this critical dimension and skillset, they are at a disadvantage personally and in the workplace
  • are already focused on both personal and professional development and want additional insights and practical tools
  • are feeling stuck and overwhelmed, and need concrete pointers and actions to map out next steps
  • those who are just starting to develop a higher degree of self-awareness, and need further insights
  • appreciate that personal development is a life-long journey, and relish the opportunity to advance that whilst recognising the benefits.

How will I benefit?

  • Demonstrate a core understanding of emotional intelligence and how it can contribute towards a happier and more fulfilling life
  • Clearly express a list of values that are important to them, and understand why this is such a critical activity
  • Recognise the value in a growth mindset and have strategies to prevent self-sabotage
  • Draw on a practical tool to support decision-making and clarify your ‘why’.
