Learning Program Overview

Life skills are vital for those in entry-level positions or those who wish to build a successful career. It is all about a new orientation, a paradigm-shift to change thinking patterns and doing things differently with a different focus. Employees can have the technical skills required to perform, but these have to be combined with personal competence to successfully climb the corporate ladder, apply leadership qualities and to build a career. The aim of this training is to provide organisational employees with the foundational skills to gain self-knowledge, to take control, motivate themselves and adopt an assertive approach

This learning program requires learners to reflect on their interests and abilities in order to empower them to make informed life and personal decisions.
