"To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom" - Socrates

Make sure your strengths don't become your weaknesses

Have you wondered what you could do if you didn't feel such a fraud all the time, or put everyone else's needs before your own? Has the perfectionism that has been such a big part of your success now started to hinder you? Would you love the confidence to be your true self and speak with impact? This course will help you understand where your traps are and give you many tools to turn them into your strengths.

Master Your Traits

We are all human and, as such, we have our own insecurities, preferences and habits. We have learned what works for us over the years and it's only natural to play to our strengths. At times, however, our strengths can become our weaknesses especially if we overplay them. This course, based on the award-winning book The Coach's Casebook will help you:

  • Tame your feeling of being an Impostor

  • Better align your needs with what you do for others

  • Harness your independent streak without alienating others

  • Turn your desire for perfection into a healthy striving for excellence

  • Become calmer and more impactful when under the spotlight
