Confidence Programme 047

Ref: C3125651

This course looks into why we suffer from lack of confidence and self awareness issues. After pinpointing learners causes we then go on to understand how we can build our confidence and self awareness to get more out of life. We look at self-esteem, what influences it and how we can build our own self-esteem up.
