Authenticity and Challenging Perceptions CIPD
Price: QAR 545

Course details


More often than not our perceptions are intuitive. However, they aren’t always accurate, especially the perceptions we have of ourselves. How often do we challenge our initial responses to see if our assumptions are correct to begin with?

Similarly, the way we think others perceive us can be inaccurate too. This can have an impact on how authentic we are and how we respond to those people. The key to challenging our assumptions is by being insatiably curious; by pinpointing what informs our perceptions and whether our beliefs are helping our hindering us.

If incorrect, the way we perceive our own abilities and certain relationships we have, can be detrimental to us. Those perceptions can create obstacles around us and prevent us from working effectively.

This one-day programme aims to help you gain insight around your perceptions by identifying your values and beliefs, building on and adding to your existing strengths and developing professional and personal confidence in order that you can be truly authentic and effective.

Run as it features here, or run in-house where the content can be tailored to suit your organisational needs; cost effective if a number of people require training
