Course Description

Making sense of who you are in the world involves a good level of self-awareness; knowing your values and how your strengths and weaknesses can support you or limit you in your life.

How you manage yourself - your thoughts and your feelings - depends upon how you well you understand your emotions, how control them and how use them as you make you way through life.

It is one of the ways that you use your emotional intelligence. The course covers the awareness part of how you manage your inner world of being.

This course is a stand alone course for anyone interested in understanding themselves better and determining their core purpose, vocation or destiny in life. It forms part of a comprehensive course that explores emotional intelligence in more depth.

Emotions are not about being soft and fluffy, they are vital in help you to make hard, direct management decisions. Managing your emotions well can mean managing your life with more influence and impact.

In this course, we will explore the way that you manage your emotions and how this drives your self-confidence, your beliefs about yourself, and how you work with your life goals. You will also be taken through an understanding of your behavioral preferences to determine your personality type. This will give you more self-awareness, a better understanding of yourself and others and will help you to make sense of who you are in tge world.

You'll receive all the information that you need and will be coached using loads of practical hints that you can use straight away.

The course is made up of a series of lectures and contains course notes. There are a series of interactive practical activities that involve some engagement with other people and some reflection.

The course material makes up a one to two day workshop so is equivalent to 8 -12 hour's training. It forms part of our advanced emotional intelligence course endorsed by the Institute of Leadership and Management.

PLEASE NOTE - This course is NOT for you if you are not prepared to work through the practical activities that make up a fundamental part of the course.  Self-awareness cannot be developed through watching a few video lectures.  The course requires you to do some reflective thinking, to get some feedback and to discuss your development with others.  I'm afraid that you won't get the best from the course unless you are prepared to do this.

There are FIVE practical activities included within the course that are designed to help you to develop your self-awareness.  All the activities require you do some work outside of the course.

The course is being continually refined and updated to ensure it remains current and relevant.
