Award in Self Awareness
I am who I am

Training Course: SA02 - Award in Self Awareness - I am who I am

Course Description: The purpose of this course is to teach students the importance of self-awareness. Knowing oneself gives the individual power over one’s behaviour and the tools to become the person one wants to be. Based on Jung's personality types, the module introduces the four basic dimensions of personal styles and explains how these dimensions relate to communication and relations. The course stresses that differences in personal style are not right or Wrong, but rather one must make the most of one's uniqueness.
