In this course students build self-awareness, identify dreams and find new effective ways to plan successful future. They find ways to create real impact, learn to break negative beliefs and build self-confidence, more empathy and communication skills.

Course consists of weekly sessions, doing Moodle assignments and writing your learning diary in Moodle (this means starting and participating discussions in Moodle discussionboards). Each week has it’s own topic.


The course doesn’t require prior knowledge or experience in self-leadership. We recommend to enroll in the course “The art of being present” to get the optimal experiences and results.
