Course Description

Learn how to make learning easier, faster and more rewarding!

Enhancing your learning capacity is key to becoming a successful leader and invaluable employee. Whether you are just starting out in your career, returning to learning, a seasoned professional, or anywhere in-between, this strengths-based workshop will help you view your own learning process in a new way, and apply that awareness to your work. You will discover ways to apply evidence-based strategies to acquire and retain new information, and learn how to actively engage with new material, rather than passively attempt to absorb it. And, as a “self-directed learner”, you will be more equipped to offer new, innovative solutions to your organization as well as in your personal life.

Join us for this engaging class and be inspired to help yourself be a better, self-directed, and more efficient lifelong learner.
