Why should you join?

However resourceful, successful, fit, fulfilled and, well… just OK you are, you have surely known times when your normal talent for getting it right abandoned you.

Personal growth happens at those points in life when you see there is something you want to be better at, and decide to go for it. That’s where my school DIY Personal Growth and Development comes in.

Whether you are going through a bad patch – adapting to a change for example, or you’ve struggled over time, or you just think it would be a good career move, these courses are all designed to show you that it can change, and how to go about it.

Each topic is aimed at prompting thought and signposting a way through some of the unavoidable challenges we face in life. You'll learn proven skills and tactics, all designed to make you more able, more effective, and more confident in whatever you undertake.
