Core Developmental Modules
The essential elements of personal development are covered in these foundation modules. After completing your audit you complete these three core modules next. Essential elements of being successful in business form the foundation of these core-coaching modules.
Research shows that personal effectiveness is higher when you calibrate the level of satisfaction you have with the different ‘elements’ of your life. Effective leaders develop action plans to address areas of low satisfaction and have a high level of awareness of when something is not working for them and they need to address it. Calibrate your situation and take action.
