Course Overview

In a hyper-connected world driven by technology and big data, the individual worker faces significant demands for his time and attention. They would need to meet customer expectations. They would have to collaborate with fellow workers to deliver products and services. They would be expected to achieve results for the organisation. On top of these, they would want to do work that is excellent, engaging and ethical, and build a personal brand for himself/herself. This inevitably can cause stress, which could lead to productivity issues unless the individual has the ability to manage himself/herself well.


Having self-management capability enables the individual worker to build greater awareness of himself/herself in terms of his/her habits and stress level. And along with a greater clarity of his/her personal vision, the individual can develop strategies to improve his personal effectiveness and develop personal branding to advance his/her careers.
