What is Personal Development ?

With elearning's online personal development course, you will learn how to improve your personal objectives and be more successful. You will learn the importance of building a brand, the three categories of the primacy effect and what impact it might have on your audience. We look at 6 major attributes that impact the way we communicate with our audience and also rank each attribute demonstrating its percentage impact. Then we look at building rapport and enhancing interactions.

The course delves into the traits that effective leaders have, the concept of identifying a need and the ability to see, act and respond to that need. The different kinds of “gifts” that effective leaders have and how it can be used to solve problems. We further look at having a clear purpose and a high level of passion and how passion helps to pursue a purpose.

I found the topics in the Personal Development course helpful in setting realistic goals, understanding how to value and believe in myself and learning how to silence my seriously bad inner critic. I now know I am unique and have a lot to offer to others.
