Personal Improvement

Personal Improvement

4 - 6 Hours

Doing our best is a great feeling but the journey to get there can be challenging. With the Personal Improvement course and exercises, we will dive into the Plan/Do/Act/Check methodology to more smoothly improve a habit or skill. This is not a problem solving course but rather to develop a habitual thinking pattern to apply to any future situations.

We all have the abilities to improve a skill or habit but having a plan and a guide can be helpful to gain the results you desire sooner. This program will aid participants to focus on their desired outcome and frequently practice to improve with peer to peer coaching.
