Title:“Dare! The Psychology of Courage!” workshop
Date:16 August 2017 (Wednesday)
Time:1.00– 2:00 PM
Venue:Room 2-1-03
Facilitator:Mr Paul Jambunathan, Clinical Psychologist & BFM Radio Show Host

Human behaviour is perhaps the most popular conundrum to many people. Our behaviour is apparently intensively goal-directed, yet, are you aware that it is also unconsciously very habitual?

To become more effective in our behaviour (anything we feel, think or act), the secret is in our ability to change. This requires two vital ingredients: self-awareness and courage to change. Courage because often the pain of change is greater than the pain of staying the same. Comfort zones can become self-limiting. Only with the courage to identify and challenge boundaries will we be able to self-actualize. We need the courage to challenge ourselves.

I DARE you!

Target Group
