Work

Many of us are unsure how to identify the right kind of work for us – or, if we have found it, how to get more out of the many hours we spend working. As well as offering skills training for professionals and teams through The School of Life for Business, we aim to help you gain a clearer understanding of your career potential and find both success and meaning in your chosen role.

Tools for Finding Fulfilling Work

From discovering the kinds of career that might be right for us to gaining the skills we need to work effectively, we offer a range of tools for ensuring the work we do is effective, enriching and meaningful.
