Faced with a challenging work life, many people simply cope. But ‘making the best of it’ seldom allows us to do our best. Effective self-management is essential for professionals who wish to do their best, lead themselves and lead others, and is a foundation of setting and achieving valuable, fulfilling goals. This workshop is for the professional who understands that their own self-management is both beneficial and right at hand.

This workshop begins your progress from a demanding work life to where you can begin understanding and practicing the primary elements of self-leadership. Self-management will be surveyed as an outcome of self-awareness and as an introduction to leading others effectively, with an eye to fostering your own exceptional performance at work and in life.
