Course Details

Personal growth needs to be a priority for most of us as we look to advance our career and grow as human beings. Dr. Ben Michaelis, clinical psychologist and well-known author of Your Next Big Thing, offers his expertise on the topic of developing personal effectiveness as it applies to the workplace.

In this course, you will learn the importance of finding time to be quiet during the day as a way of reflecting and recharging the brain; the concept of the inner critic, which the author defines as the voice of all the people who said “no” to you; the concept of “embrace your process”; the importance of understanding failure as the best source of information on the road to innovation; the importance of reclaiming your “inner hero”, who the author defines as the instinct for self-preservation that is inherently optimistic; the issue of personal privacy; and the challenge of being able to set personal boundaries at the workplace.
