Flourishing in the higher levels of corporate life depends on much more than just expertise and experience. Your emotional intelligence, personal presence and self-confidence under pressure are what really make the difference at a senior level. Your credibility, gravitas and ability to network and negotiate with key decision-makers now count for much more than ever before. This course gives you the tools to excel in all these areas, drawing on established mindset management techniques, the psychology of persuasion and the latest discoveries from neuroscience.
