Genius, Power, Dreams – Unleash your inner genius
Can we afford to allow ourselves not to be who we really are at work? Should we ‘play the game’ and act like we think an actor would in the role we’ve been given? Should we conform to what’s expected? Or should we connect with our unique strength and genius and come alive with ideas, emotional engagement and enjoy the unique difference and strength of each other?
Start your journey to unleashing your true life potential at our workshop ‘Genius, Power, Dreams’, it aims to give you an opportunity to explore your natural and unique strength, explore the power and impact you can have, and take some time to consider your life’s dream.
- Imagine getting to do what you love every day.
- Imagine being surrounded by people who were genuinely passionate about what they do.
- Imagine having others recognise and nurture your unique talent.
