Personal Development and Life Skills

Humanist Life SkillsThe various skills and techniques of Humanism when applied to everyday problem solving create an incredibly powerful and holistic approach to life. Most life coaches and motivational speakers teach some aspect of the philosophy. The problem is that they leave out key elements that make the approach actually work. These courses will help you better understand how the various aspects of what you have already been taught work together as an integrated whole  While the shift in your thinking will be subtle the implications for how you live your life and relate to other people will be dramatic.
