Turning Point
Wed 27 July 8:30am - Fri 29 July 5:00pm
Dunedin Club, 33 Melville Street
What would your organisation be capable of if all of your team were achieving their potential?
If problems became opportunities; failures became feedback?
What if your people had the knowledge and insight to realise what they are actually capable of in the workplace and the tools to start living it?

Turning Point is a personal development and performance programme, grounded in the theory of psychology and human development. This staff training programme is built on the knowledge that self-aware, self-managing individuals form the foundation of any successful organisation.
When a person is clear about what is important to them, has self-serving beliefs about themselves and the world and recognises their power of choice, then they can achieve anything they set their mind to.

To develop robust individuals who have a high level of self awareness and use that knowledge to gain the most out of their life

Turning Point is popular as a course for emerging leaders but is also a strong foundational course which clients use to boost the uptake of, engagement in, and implementation of, various in-house programmes or initiatives.

Traditionally personal development has focused on achieving goals without focusing on the individual. We work from the premise that if you focus on yourself first, building on and strengthening your capability, while becoming aware of what can prevent you from achieving your desired outcomes, the chances are much greater that you will succeed.
