Being Proactive & Action-Oriented

Being Proactive & Action-Oriented


At times, we find ourselves stuck in situations where we feel helpless, paralysed and incapable of changing the situation. It can be anything ranging from a seemingly unreasonable supervisor who is out to make your life difficult to company processes that don’t make any sense. Being Proactive & Action-Oriented is a programme that teaches you:

i. Simply not to accept that any predicament is “unfixable”.

ii. That everything is about choices – the decisions you make, your responses to people, events and circumstances inevitably affect your future.

iii. To take charge of situations rather than allow yourself to be victimised by what life throws at you.


Who Should Attend

Anyone who has the desire to break out of existing predicaments and have better control over their lives.
