The Power of Self-Leadership

Course Details

Learning Path: Workplace Skills

Duration: 3 Day(s).

Course Overview

This course is for you if you have a will to succeed – in business and in life – and you recognize that no matter how much help and guidance you receive from teachers, mentors, supervisors and peers, the one resource you must depend on most is yourself. You are ultimately responsible for your own success and fulfillment. Success will come more easily to some of you than to others. But you will come up against obstacles in reaching your goals – some of them real and practical, and some of them imaginary. Successful people recognize that you can overcome both kinds of obstacles through will, self-regard and organization.
