HOW THE PROGRAMME WORKS
When you purchase this programme you will receive access details for you to sign into the Flourishing Institute learning portal. Here you can see the courses you have purchased and this is where you will complete the online part of the course. You will also receive information on the coached sessions and how to book these video calls with our coach at designated points throughout your learning. We're also available throughout your journey so please reach out if you have any questions.
This is a self-paced learning programme – there is a generous access timeframe of one year so there's virtually no time limit for completing this course and you can revisit it as often as you want within the year, so come back and refresh and reference all the tips and tools. There are seven concise videos to watch, along with reflection questions to complete and workshop exercises to download. There are a couple of summary handouts which provide an overview of different techniques for you to print off and keep.
After you have completed the first set of videos 1-3 then you have a half hour, one to one video chat with our coach to talk through your findings and how best you can implement them. The same after the 2nd set of videos; 4 and 5.
It is better to complete a little section every few days, rather than try and cram the programme into a short burst. Previous programme participants have suggested that it helps to put some regular time aside for your learning.
