Personal Development Courses
Looking to brush up on your leadership skills to be a better boss? Maybe you’re simply at the beginning of your professional journey and becoming CEO is just one of your many goals? Or perhaps you’re a small business owner who wants to learn something different and improve yourself as a person – no matter where you are in your career path, taking a LEARNT self-help course can give you new perspectives that are potentially life changing.
What can I learn from a personal development course?
Simply put, personal development courses help you learn new skills to help you approach the world – or a specific problem – in a different way. By broadening your mind, you’re then better equipped to navigate a variety of challenging environments or situations and design better frameworks to support a suitable solution.
LEARNT personal development programs go far beyond a simple certificate of completion (but we give you one of those too!). When we teach you a new skill or ability, we empower you with strategies on how to implement it in your personal and professional life to reduce stress and influence career success.
Our courses for personality development cover a variety of individual- and organisation-focused learning areas – from business management courses online such as short HR courses and leadership courses online to training and assessment courses online and our online small business courses. We also have a series of courses focused on mental health and well-being at work (whether you’re in a physical office or a work-from-home set-up).
Whether you’re a new or future business leader or owner, our self-development courses can help you develop the core communication and relationship management skills required to help you work smarter and support professional success.
What’s more, you’ll get some serious CRED for it! Each of our personal development courses has been developed around competence, relevance, education, and development. You’ll acquire all of these – and more – from content designed by experts in your chosen field and receive a certificate of achievement to include with your CV, LinkedIn profile, or other promotional materials.
What are the career opportunities after taking personal development courses?
The best thing about LEARNT personal development courses is that you gain transferable skills that you can use to positively influence any part of your life. That means whatever your current career path or goals, you’ll be able to use the skills you learned with us and apply them to everyday personal and professional scenarios.
Even if leadership isn’t one of your goals, building your self-confidence and understanding leadership strategies and skills can have profound benefits on your life. That’s why our self-improvement training encompasses a combination of hard and soft skills.
Examples of hard skills include workflow and productivity planning. This doesn’t just require an understanding of what work needs to be done by a deadline and telling someone to do it. Success means knowing and teaching the best frameworks to support each individual so you can reduce stress, get ahead of deadlines, and ultimately improve productivity and create a happier office.
Soft skills – also known as holistic competencies – are personality-based values, attitudes, and skills like resilience, understanding and respect, patience, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and different types of listening. They influence how others perceive us and correspondingly can make or break personal or work relationships.
The content in our online self-help courses can all be applied outside of work: consider that planning your time better can increase the time you can spend with your family or friends, and the ability to truly listen and make someone feel heard can build healthier personal relationships.
