Becoming A Better You – Maybe You Need to Change How You Change
So much of what stands in the way of successful, sustainable change are our perceptions and the stories we’ve created that keep us locked in old habits and patterns.
In his “Becoming a Better You” workshop, Dr. Peter Vajda shares his knowledge of how and why we resist change so you can understand what’s holding you back. He then provides you with the tools to forward the action of your life.
You will receive valuable insights and practical exercises for personal growth at work, home and in relationships.
Peter’s 30+ years’ experience in the public and private sectors includes working as a University professor, consultant, trainer, facilitator, manager and for the past 15 years as a Certified Professional Coach. Peter holds a Master’s Degree in Education and a Doctorate in Education and Cognitive Psychology.
He is a dedicated author. For the past 12 years he has written a weekly column – “Food-For-Thought” - focusing on moving through the obstacles and barriers that stand in the way of meaningful change. He is currently completing a book on personal change and transformation – Becoming a Better You.
