+Plan Your Future
Plan Your Future Course

We are all faced with important choices in life. Knowing how to make the right choices isn’t always easy. In this course we introduce the practice of self-coaching to help people make the right choices. You’ll have an opportunity to take stock, review your options and establish the best goals for you.  We’ll show you how to identify personal values, strengths and needs and then set SMARTER goals and Well-Formed Outcomes.

We also provide a powerful set of tools and techniques for turning goals into reality. This includes the art of modelling, harnessing the power of the unconscious mind and dealing with set-backs and ‘failure’.

With an emphasis on self-motivation and self-management you’ll walk away with an action plan and the right tools to succeed, whatever your goals.  Whether you want to improve your work-life balance, make a career change or build motivation to achieve your goals, this course has something for you.

+Unleash Your Strengths
Unleash Your Strengths Course

The evidence is clear … we gain far more from building on our strengths than developing our weaknesses.  That’s why we designed this course.

In this session you’ll complete the Values in Action (VIA) survey to help you identify your ‘signature strengths’ (such as perseverance, judgement, teamwork and leadership).  The VIA survey is a scientifically validated assessment tool that enables people to focus on their strengths rather than their shortcomings.  During the workshop you’ll explore ways you can apply your strengths in work and outside of work.

+Using Emotional Intelligence
EIIt’s estimated that between 27 and 45% of job success is related to Emotional Intelligence (EI).  So why do we spend so little time learning about our emotional and social functioning?  Here we explain the principles of EI and offer practical techniques for putting good EI into practice, including cultivating self-awareness, regulating emotions and practicing empathy and assertiveness.

Delegates have the option of completing their own Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0®) and receiving one-to-one feedback from an accredited EQ-i Coach.  This level of support can produce major changes in EI and significant improvements in performance and fulfillment at work and outside of work.

+Building Personal Resilience
Personal Resilience CoursesIn this course you’ll learn practical skills for managing high pressure, rapid change and adversity.

We explore what resilience means and the benefits it can bring, both personally and professionally.  We uncover what stress really means and provide powerful techniques for minimizing its negative effects.  We also demonstrate techniques for building resilience proactively, including problem-solving (with the 7-step problem-solving technique), managing emotions, building positive beliefs (such as optimism and self-compassion) and bringing more ‘flow’ moments into your life.

On this course you’ll have an opportunity to complete your own Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0®), receive feedback from an accredited EQ-i Coach and develop a plan for developing your EI strengths.
