The Influence of the Empowered Learner

What or who is an empowered learner?

Taking responsibility for your own development enhances negotiation prospects to gaining employer support with time, finance and/ or mentoring, which is never a foregone conclusion.

Should this fail, the empowered learner has the determination to seek support from their wider personal network as they recognise there is more than one route to achieving.

You are a rare breed 🙌🥳👏 For the rest of us, it is mostly a journey downwards into a spiral of failure, guilt, and frustration which circles back to thinking less of ourselves and hardly ever making us feel good or achieve anything meaningful. Most of us fail for three main reasons: Lack of clarity, Unreasonable expectations, and Lack of inspiration or passion.
