Are you seeking personal growth and want to develop emotionally? Would you like to expand your self-awareness? Would you like to be able to understand how and why you react in different situations? Would you like to know how to be more sensitive to others; be open to their points of view and yet build confidence and assertiveness? 
Personal development is more than just gaining new skills. It is about being willing to look introspectively and allowing yourself to look at your actions, behaviour, thought processes and evaluating how that impacts you, your work, private life and people you are connected to.
In our Leading and Developing Myself Workshop, you will gain a deeper understanding of who you are, get to know where your reactions come from, and be open to see where others are coming from when in contact with you. You will develop your emotional intelligence as well as learn how to react from an authentic you and still be respectful.
Whether you are a manager, a professional, a parent, or simply interested in learning more about yourself – this workshop will strengthen your personal awareness, confidence and emotional intelligence.
