It was something that a colleagues said that inspired me to commence a number of online courses. I used to pride myself with making time to improve my thinking and learn new things, but as my career has progressed I found it easer to make excuses for my lack of effort in this area. The ending of my contract with Pat Val has provided me with some spare time, so I have started a course in leadership as I wanted to make sure that my thinking and behaviours are in tune with how younger generation would like to be led and I’m pleased to say that this week I’m completing module one of a four module diploma.
In terms of learning new skills, I’m busy working my way through a project management diploma and a social media marketing diploma.
All of the above is part of my effort to become a more rounded business leader.
