Effective Self-Management with outdoor activities

With deliberate self-management, you have the ability to control your actions, feelings, and thoughts in all situations. You set the direction of your life and move steadily towards your goals with self-discipline, motivation, and focus. When you have strong self-management skills, you tend to be more successful across all fields of live: work, school, or home.

At the course we will explore the essence of self-management, as well as related techniques e.g. goal setting, time management, stress management, mindfulness, self-motivation, conflict management and physical activities.

As a result, you will better know yourself; your values, strengths and weaknesses; manage your emotions; reduce stress impact; improve communication skills and become a happier, more balanced person. So it’s worth investing time and effort in developing these skills.

The acquired tools and techniques can be further implemented at work with children or colleagues to create healthy routines and build trustful relationships.

This course combines the classroom theory in the morning and practical modules in beautiful outdoor places in the afternoon.
