COURSE OVERVIEW

The workshop focuses on the principles of effective self-management and personal attitude by the leading exponents in this field. Participants will learn what personal self-management is, learn its advantages and disadvantages and how to apply the psychology and competencies for better self-management through a change in perception and interpretation of how you, as an individual, live, and change in this world. This workshop will take you through this change, which affects how you perceive and act regarding productivity, time management, positive thinking psychology and attitude, developing your “proactive muscles” (acting with initiative rather than reacting), and much more.

This programme explains the tools and techniques for successfully leading and managing organisational transformational change efforts. You will learn why ‘resistance to change’ is a myth and come to understand why change efforts are often not successful and what to do about that. Finally, participants will learn the different approaches that have been proven to be effective in leading and managing transformational change in dynamic organisations.
