This subject aims to equip students with the theoretical underpinnings and practical tools necessary to increase proficiency in a number of areas of self-development relevant to the world of work. Drawing on knowledge from theories of developmental and self-psychology, philosophy, positive psychology, positive organisational scholarship and neuroscience, the subject has been designed around three critical pillars of self-learning and growth. These are: (i) foundations of self-knowledge and understanding, (ii) managing the self at work, and (iii) facilitating self-growth and change for organisational success. The subject is based on the premise that we ourselves are responsible for the outcomes in our lives and that non-judgemental self-awareness, reflection and self-acceptance is fundamental to personal development. Students interact with the subject through a variety of engaging learning techniques, which emphasise active participation, collaborative and personal reflection, experimentation and practice. It is anticipated that students complete this subject equipped with an enhanced understanding and awareness of the role of the self in the creation of a fulfilling, engaged and successful working life.
