16 August 2023

What are the secrets of successful people? Find out and learn how to put them into action in your professional and personal life with our short executive education course, 'The 10 Behaviours of Successful People'.


This engaging two-day course will teach you the difference between people who achieve success versus those who remain stagnant or never live up to their potential. Come ready to unlearn some old behaviours and be open to discovering new ways of thinking.


What will you gain?

Course facilitator David Keane spent years studying successful people and their behaviours, capturing them in his bestselling book The Art of Deliberate Success: The 10 Behaviours of Successful People. This course will teach you the 10 behaviours you can implement in your personal and professional life, so you can be the best version of yourself and a greater contributor to your company or organisation.

You will:

  • Discover what success really means to you;
  • Improve your productivity;
  • Work less, but achieve more;
  • Be a better team player;
  • Use some great tools to achieve big things;
  • Dramatically reduce unwanted stress in your life; and
  • Balance your professional and personal life.

Your organisation will also benefit from your increased productivity, effectiveness and engagement, as well as your improved wellbeing, mental fitness and health and openness to change and new ideas.
