Make Yourself a Priority

Ref: C3842260

Increase your satisfaction and opportunities in life and work because you can state clearly what you want. Not being able to prioritize your own needs or state them is common. It can get in the way of you pursuing life and career goals. Explore what you want and how you can make what you want a priority. Practice the skills that will help you prioritize your own needs, so you get greater control over your own life and work. If setting your own priorities has a habit of taking second place to the priorities of other people in your life and work, this course will allow you to explore some practical things you can do to change how you think about yourself and focus on your own priorities. Build the confidence to say what you want and what you don’t want.
