Supported by Social Cognitive Theory and our HOMEPLay, our programmes and insight tools increase self-awareness, the building block to boosting your sense of personal agency. Your leadership and management status quo then shifts, propelling you forward.
Only through self-reflection are we able to achieve the self-regulation necessary for self-actualisation. We promote self-reflection by embedding a SWITCHBook learning journal in our programs and our insight tool reports and debriefs.
To help you feel better supported and develop your self-confidence as leaders, our programmes include the opportunity to share your ideas and reflections and workplace application with your peers in our social learning area, in SWITCHinars or group consultations.
The practice activities, SWITCHinars, pulse checks and consults used in our programmes aid long-term behaviour change by engaging the brain and reinforcing learning. These learnings have been gained over 50 years of business and education experience.
