Who should attend
The Personal Leadership & Success (Online) program is designed for executives at all levels, who are searching for practical techniques to gain greater success in their professional and personal lives through an enhanced understanding and mastery over their inner environment.
About the course
We typically approach leadership as an outward-focused discipline. As a leader, you need to know how to inspire others, direct others, change others, influence others, and turn others around at times of adversity. But what if you turn that lens inward? Do you know how to inspire your self, direct your self, change your self, influence your self, and turn your own self around at times of adversity? Isn’t it critical to master this inner game of leadership before you can master the outer game?
