Thriving with Personal Awareness – Part 1

This week saw us have our first proper module as part of Rising Talent, Thriving with Personal Awareness. Run by the lovely Simon from Different Dynamics, I’ve encountered part of the training module in part in some of MEC’s Inspirational Management training.
