In this course, I take you through the many aspects of the ‘Self’ with the goal of helping you understand your strengths and weaknesses. Human beings are in a constant state of change and growth and by being aware of your emotions you will understand how to build and maintain healthy relationships, set and achieve goals and ultimately live a life of intent and success.

Using humour and my own experiences I aim to provide you with a fun and engaging platform that will motivate you to invest in yourself. I want to hear your stories, listen to your experiences, and guide you across the hurdles that you may be facing. Emotions can make or break us, this is about your investment in yourself and I am here to eventually get a return on that investment.

“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom.” – Viktor E. Frankl

There is no formal assessment for this course however a short self-assessment will be handed out to each learner at the end of the course. As the facilitator, I will be using various informal assessment methods during the courses to understand if the concepts are being understood and can be applied. I will also provide attendees with various resources that they can work through at their own pace.

Prior to becoming a speaker and trainer on the weighty topic of Emotional Intelligence, I went through an EQ journey, which taught me the benefit of an increased self-awareness. Once I began to understand how I function in the relation to the world around me I began to understand how to live a life of purpose. My many experiences, combined with the interactions I’ve had through coaching and training in this topic have enabled me to move my learners from a state of existing to living my intent.

My articles and videos on this topic have been published on various platforms over the years and I continue to strive for current, trending, and most importantly, useful information to develop and grow my audience.

About Me

I want to be paid to read, write and talk but since that's not possible (Yet), I've settled for something in the middle- life skills training and facilitation. In the classroom I get to interact with people from all walks of life, sharing what I've learnt, and helping people move forward in their lives, all while learning and developing constantly myself. I use my quirky sense of humor, story telling abilities and my ability to connect with people, to create an engaging learning space where any learner can thrive.

Life skills can range from anything to almost everything! What differentiates a manager from a leader? Or an effective performer from a Highly Effective performer? What makes it so easy to talk to and take advice from one person but not someone else? That's where learning the art of Life skills makes a difference. Knowing how to communicate well; be an active participant in all your engagements or just being present and listening to the conversations around you, can be the difference between a having a job or launching a career.

Here's where I come in: I can help you navigate and apply all these concepts, not just in your professional life, but in your personal life as well.
Outside of the formal learner and development space I am a Life Coach, writer and speaker.
I create training videos on various African, UK and American platforms and try my hardest to continue growing.

Each Learned.Live teacher is awarded a 4 star review for every one of their courses we have approved, in line with our assessment. This is why some teachers will display more than one 4 star review from Learned.Live if they have had multiple courses rigorously assessed by our team. We would not approve a course application if we did not feel it warranted a default 4 star review. Teacher star ratings are an average of each of their courses star ratings and will become modified as more students review their course(s) over time
