|FAILURE PROOFING PEOPLE TRAINING
This class is for everyone: Executives, Project Sponsors, Project Managers or Project Team Members. We all have a responsibility to understand and manage the dynamics which influence our career.
There was a time in the not to distant past when a person could join an organization, perform in a competent manner, and expect to receive a pension at the end of their career. The prevailing thought was that workers died and the companies lived forever. As we all know, that world has changed dramatically. Now companies fade away and workers have to seek new ideas and opportunities to nurture.
What are some of the factors that have contributed to this change?
How have they impacted your life directly?
What can you do to cope with these turbulent times?
As Jim Harris, the author, says,
"The way to survive in the world today is to:
1. Plan on having to continue learning for the rest of your life.
2. Learn to expect and embrace change
3. Learn to cope with uncertainty
.For there are no secure jobs, only secure people."
The learning objectives for the course are to:
Understand why individual careers may falter
Understand 21st Century skills - what they are, why they matter, how to get them
Understand the need for continuous learning, what are the benefits and how to do it

Students completing this course will be much better equipped to deal with real world career management issues.
