Pitman Training

Management – Personalities, Profiles and Plans

Course Outline

This is the perfect self-development program for anyone who needs to understand their strengths and weaknesses – and want to create some clear and achievable career goals.

You’ll gain insights into how individuals respond and behave, carry out a personal skills audit and produce a personal development plan. This is career- and work-focussed learning which gets its message across with interactive learning, special learning activities and quick quizzes.

Unlike many self-development courses, this one is conducted entirely via the internet, a flexible way to learn at your own pace. So you can access your self-development training whenever you like. An online progress meter lets you keep track of your progress, and you’ll find practical hints and tips to use in real-life situations.

You have a generous six months in which to complete the course – after which you’ll be able to put the renowned Pitman Training name on your CV.
