+Goal Setting For Success
Goal Setting Course 2015 Goal setting lies at the heart of high achievement in any walk of life.

In this workshop we review the fundamental principles of goal setting to help you manage work performance and maintain the right work-life balance.

You'll complete a 'Wheel of Life' exercise, review your strengths and professional objectives and then set SMARTER goals and 'Well-Formed Outcomes'. 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.

+Personal Development Programme

In a rapidly changing workplace, ongoing self-development and self-directed learning has never been more importrant. That's what we cover in this course.

You'll learn how to: identify your personal strengths, values and career preferences (using the Career Anchors Inventory); use the TGROW model for self-coaching; develop meaningful and motivating goals using SMARTER and ‘Well-Formed Outcome’ structures and build confidence to manage change effectively.

We also demonstrate behavioural change techniques so you can build the motivation to stay on track and achieve your goals.

+Unleash Your Strengths

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
It'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.

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.

Understanding the concept of EI and how to develop your own EI skills is a key part of successful leadership. This course offers practical skills for strengthening EI. There are multiple benefits for leaders and their teams in the areas of wellbeing, resilience and engagement.

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.
