How does personal development and wellbeing work together?

Although the title of this short courses refers to leadership, self-development is at the core of this course's messaging, as developing yourself is the first step to self-leadership and resilience.

Creating a happier, healthier and more productive workplace relies on the resilience of your employees. This course effectively helps individuals develop strategies to overcome the usual obstacles that get in the way of developing yourself, which translates into many benefits in their professional careers.

Personal development is a term that can mean various things for different people, such as:
