Course Outline:

Focus on your professional development and how Emotional Intelligence (E.Q.) can assist.

For many of us our careers have stalled or hit a brick wall. Right now the focus is on maintaining our jobs or getting a new one. We are needing to be creative in forging our future paths and it is tough. Career planning seems a distant dream.

But a great career doesn’t just happen by itself it takes time, effort and most importantly, planning, to get right. This on-line interactive Not for Profit workshop will be extremely useful in helping to clarify your career goals and sharpen your focus especially around the development you can do today in preparation for tomorrow. The workshop also looks at how to prepare for applying for a new role either now or in the future and helps you understand your strengths, passions and values when making choices.

Designed for the those needing to apply now for new roles, or those that know that they will need to sometime soon. It is also useful for those wanting to have a longer-term career plan. and for people leaders who are needing to help others through this tricky pathway.

Knowledge of how to use Zoom is helpful, but not critical – the facilitator will ensure you feel comfortable and build your confidence in using the free platform.
