Personal Development Courses

Have you returned from your summer holiday ready to expand your knowledge or invest in your personal development?

While holidays and leisure activities may be at the forefront of our minds, the summer season also presents an ideal occasion to contemplate our career path and set goals for the future.

Sun, sea and sangria relax the mind, body and soul, but when we pause and take ourselves away from our busy job roles, we allow ourselves to reflect on where we want to be this time next year.

After enjoying their summer break, many people come back with a renewed focus on their personal growth. This period of relaxation provides them with the opportunity to assess the direction of their career and seize control of it. They might choose to enrol on a relevant course, pursue an internal promotion, or initiate a performance review to proactively steer their career towards their desired path.

Unplugging to Reconnect

In the fast-paced world we live in, it's easy to get caught up in the daily grind, leaving little time for introspection. A summer break grants us the luxury of stepping away from our regular routines, allowing us to unplug from work-related responsibilities and immerse ourselves in activities that truly bring us joy. By disconnecting from the stressors of the workplace, we create space to reconnect with our true aspirations and gain clarity on what we desire for our careers.

Identifying Career Goals

Setting clear and actionable objectives allows us to create a roadmap for our professional and personal development. Whether it's advancing to a managerial role, exploring new fields, or honing specific skills, the summer break is the perfect time to envision the next chapter in our careers.

Improving as a Manager

For those already in managerial positions, the summer break can be an opportunity to evaluate their leadership abilities. By reflecting on past interactions with their teams, they can identify areas that require improvement, such as communication, delegation, or fostering a positive work environment. Engaging in leadership courses or management training during the summer break can contribute to their growth as effective leaders.

Illuminating Our Career Path: The Role of Coaching Courses

While relaxing is paramount during the summer break, the season is also conducive to learning and growth. Enrolling in a coaching course can be an illuminating experience. Coaches are skilled in helping individuals explore their aspirations, recognise obstacles, and formulate a strategic plan to achieve career goals. A coaching course empowers us with valuable tools to navigate our career trajectory more efficiently and confidently.

If you want to expand your knowledge as a coach, our Essential Coaching Skills course is perfect. If you'd like to register your interest for our next course, get in touch with the team > 

ILM Courses: Empowering Leadership and Management Skills

For those aspiring to leadership roles or already in leadership roles, an Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) course can be the perfect summer break investment. These courses offer a comprehensive platform for honing leadership and management skills. From enhancing communication to fostering a positive work culture, ILM courses equip professionals with the knowledge and capabilities required to excel as effective leaders.

If this is something you’re looking for, we’re delighted to have opportunities coming up for our ILM Level 5 courses >

As you return to work, use this time wisely to recharge your spirits, reflect on your professional journey, and envision where you want to be in your career. The break offers the ideal environment to unwind, reset, and think about our aspirations, whether that's improving as a manager, pursuing personal development, or advancing our careers in new directions. Embrace this period of self-discovery and let it fuel your determination to grow, evolve, and thrive in the pursuit of your dreams.

Our team is always more than happy to offer you a free, no obligation advisory chat to discuss what course may be the best fit for you. We can consider your interests, goals and aspirations.
