You asked, we answered! CFTE is partnering with Gillian Cribbs, an Executive Coach, to launch an online course on Coaching for Personal and Professional Development.
Just a few weeks ago, CFTE hosted a session in partnership with Gillian, which touched on the importance of personal development and leadership during crisis situations. After the event, we received some valuable feedback from our community members about the structural uncertainties that many of us are currently facing in our professional careers.
Achieving your leadership potential
From the insights we received, one thing seems clear. In times like this, many people are looking to find their purpose, learn to develop themselves, and coach others. Undoubtedly, personal development is a lifelong process and it is even more important now than ever before. It is a way for individuals to assess their skills and qualities, consider their aims in life and set goals in order to realise and maximise their potential.
In the midst of the COVID19 chaos as well as the subsequent large-scale social and economic uncertainties, there is a very real need for people to be able to manage their teams well. Further, this is a time that thoroughly tests our personal resilience and inner strength we need to be adequately prepared on how to weather through this. Not only is there a need for strong leaders, but people also need to be able to lead themselves, and you can only be a good coach when you are able to coach yourself.
At CFTE, we believe that great leaders are made, not born. Inspired by our mission to empower professionals, we have partnered with Gillian Cribbs to design ‘Coaching for Personal and Professional Growth’. This course has been curated for those who seek to improve their leadership skills and develop themselves holistically. This course will enable participants to learn how to leverage uncertainty to their advantage. In times of crisis, there are always opportunities to grow and develop. If you’re looking for opportunities but unsure about where to find them, this could be the moment you to step up and accelerate your career.
Tram Anh Nguyen, Co-Founder of CFTE has said: “We are thrilled to launch this course e with Gillian to help people to develop their leadership skills. We are creating this course in line with CFTE’s mission to empower professionals and we hope that it will help them with dealing with the current challenges”.
