Power Tool – Confidence Building Course
Confidence is a great character to have. Confident people step-out, step-up and are most likely to step into success. Success has been defined as the ability to reach your goals in life, whatever those goals may be. That takes some level of confidence, the audacity to dare succeed at whatever the goal might be; or no matter how daunting. The Power Tool course teaches:
  • How to overcome fear.

  • Setting goals and confidently achieving them; and more.
