“Potential is a priceless treasure, like gold. All of us have gold hidden within, but we have to dig to get it out.”
Joyce Meyer– American Author
Not realising your potential is probably one of the bigger regrets as people get older. “Am I reaching my potential?” is not the same as asking, or “How can I be successful in my career?”.
People who attend this half-day session often ask us:
- How do I reach my potential?
- Why am I frustrated when others don’t see my potential? What can I do to show them I have more to offer
- I know I am capable of more, but I don’t know where to go from here?
- What tools can help me to reach my potential?
To reach your potential, you need to develop a sense of what you are naturally like so that you can focus in areas that align with your interests and strengths and then look at ways to capitalise on it in your current circumstances.
In this session we will look at things you can do to realise and reach your potential. The session is an opportunity to reflect on approaches to realise your potential from a business perspective. You will increase self-awareness around your potential and use a SCOT analysis to create a strategic plan. We will illustrate the importance of setting your own goals and to using your personal initiative to achieve them. It will help you identify increased opportunities that will help you to succeed by looking at personal reputation and the important of networking.
This half-day session is suitable for anyone who wants to realise their potential.
