Professional Self Development

The world of work is characterized by rapid ongoing change. In this dynamic environment, one of the most critical skills for leaders is their capacity to learn and to adapt; to engage in the continuous development of their skills in managing and leading others. This course will assist us in the ongoing development of our skills and abilities by focusing on the nature of the self-development process. Participants will reflect on and develop self-awareness of their current leadership style to understand the strengths they need to develop and which challenges they will face as leaders. The course also examines the change process, and explores the processes of self-regulation that underpin personal skill development.
