Webcast: Realisation and Self-Determination
In this webcast delivered by the award winning Learning & Development company, ABSTRACT, we will explore Realisation and the fulfilment of your personal and career potential. Knowing what you want, when you want it and how to get it for yourself! Realisation in this context is the awakening of our ambitions. It moves our deep embedded thoughts into consciousness. It creates awareness of our capability and establishes where we are now. If nurtured, it can form our immediate or longer-term reality. Self-determination is the applied control to our realisation. It is our unique motivation that continuously drives us towards personal growth and fulfilment.
ABSTRACT will take participants on an intelligent and interactive journey, beginning with an in-depth look at WHY this is important, demonstrating HOW through examples and real life stories and culminating with establishing the WHAT for each of your own personal and career goals for you to take away and action. We ask ‘If not now, when and if not you, then who?
We are delighted to have two ABSTRACT directors delivering this webcast:
