Course overview

We're delighted to offer this brand new course in an exciting new partnership withBlue Ptarmigan, who are people focused performance specialists. Trainer Mark Douglas has extensive experience in the design and delivery of people based ‘development interventions’ for the third sector, SME’s and public sector bodies.

We all have moments of self-doubt and wonder if we can really achieve what is being asked of us. The world of work can be a tough and lonely place where perceived rejection and failure is tough to handle. Sometimes, the ‘stories we tell ourselves’ can hold you back; you can end up questioning your ability and your worth. Your ability to continue on and keep your self-belief is a key attribute to achieving both work and personal success.

After all, “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark’, Michelangelo.
