If you watch how nature deals with adversity, continually renewing itself, you cannot help but learn.  Bernie S. Siegel

In 2021, New Zealanders will continue to face adversity and challenges personally and professionally. We all need support and resources to face these head on, while keeping our focus on the future.

Based on the best-selling business book, The Art of Deliberate Success: The 10 Behaviours of Successful People, Centre for Lifelong Learning (Victoria University of Wellington) are offering a series of three 75-minute seminars held once a week over three weeks.

This research based interactive seminar series is hosted virtually using the Zoom platform with Dr David Keane as facilitator. There is "fun work" before each seminar and the opportunity to talk with Dr Keane afterwards. The seminars are focused on implementation of the 10 Behaviours ensuring you come away with specific ideas for action, and a new mindset for looking at all aspects of your life.

Series outline:

Seminar 1: What Matters Most
Success is not all down to hard work, determination, and a never-give-up attitude. Learn valuable skills to help you successfully manage the demands of day-to-day life.

Seminar 2: Getting Stuff Done10 Behaviours book and smartphone
