Goals setting for personal growth – workshops for international students


Check the next event organised by the Welcome Point!

Achieving some since long pursued goal gives a feeling of fulfilment and boosts the self-esteem. The best example is when we watch Olympics or other sports competition getting even as emotional of successes of others as of our own. The end was clear – to get the golden medal, to beat the competitors, to win the games, to prove the impossible. The motivation and feeling of accomplishments moves people up in personal growth. It would be great to have this Olympics feelings more often than every few years and based on our own accomplishments.

This is where the ability to set goals in a smart way comes in play.

It is a skill that pays off in both, personal and professional life, that’s why we would like to invite you to our next workshops: ‘Goals setting for personal growth’.
