Course information

​We all have met in our life a teacher, a professor or a mentor able to draw us in their subject with the same love and passion they were feeling. Most likely, the spark that we felt was not related to the subject itself but to the way the persons were transmitting their knowledge. Was it the tone and pace of voice? Was the capacity to engage you and build on your existing knowledge? Was their ability to challenge you while providing the support needed to meet the challenge? Surprisingly, these are all skills that can be learned.
4change has developed a unique transformational approach to training that has been successfully applied with a large variety of audiences across the world.
