Key challenges

• A series of workshops on topics such as Leadership Skills, Confidence & Resilience, Assertiveness skills, Stress Management, Career Planning, Presentation Skills, Application and Interview techniques

• One to one coaching sessions including Clarity 4D personality profiling, with each session tailored to the delegate and situation to help them develop their leadership behaviours and achieve their goals.

• Assessment and validation of the workshops and outcomes

Outcomes

From the workshops results included:

• 14% increase in confidence, assertiveness and resilience
