EM05 - Level 4 Award in Growth Performance Solutions

To offer our clients the highest level in training EndeavourUK has linked with Ches Moulton, an expert in personal growth performance, to deliver the Level 4 Award in Growth Performance Solutions.

Course Description

 

This programme is aimed at professionals looking to gain greater insight into the human dynamic; how we think, feel and behave. It teaches the many aspects needed to achieve greater awareness in how to enjoy successful relationships with our self and others, leading to a richer fabric of life and leisure. It covers personal development in the workplace and includes sections on: developing a skill set, achievement motivation, character development, goal setting, group dynamics, leadership, body language and resolving conflict. 

The old model of work-life balance that spoke to the division of time and effort between career and recreation, has been outdated and somewhat irrelevant for many years. The model that champions the vision of this formula in the 21st century, while including that of time spent in leisure and recreational activities has become more about the quality of life related to levels of satisfaction and enjoyment, contrasted with stress and anxiety experienced by individuals.

Who we are at home, the levels of anxiety and happiness, our fears and phobias, our learned behaviour patterns and the forces that compel us in our relationship building skills, are the very same elements that we carry with us into our working environment. While some aspects of our workplace persona are uniquely exhibited in that environment, our underlying nature represents the foundation of the person we are, the manner in which we conduct ourselves and the way in which we interact with others during our daily work activities.

With this in mind, emphasis must be placed on addressing the emotional and mental compass and well being of individuals to ensure an equitable approach to all of the elements required for a balanced, happy, and productive employee, intent on successful outcomes both professionally and personally.
