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 evidenced-based strategies to acquire and retain new information, and how to actively engage with new material, rather than passively attempt to absorb it. And, as a “self-learner”, you will be more equipped to offer new, innovative solutions to your organization.
