FAQ

Does the completion of this course lead to a qualification?

No, it is a short course aimed at self-development and to help you in a practical manner to become successful in your workplace in order to move your career forward. 

 

Is a qualification not better to invest in?

Well, it depends – if you need a formal qualification, then do it. However, the aim of this Achieve-Your-Own-Future course is to empower you in a practical manner and at multiple levels – self-insight, business skills and leadership skills – all of these are supporting business skills to become successful in your workplace. It is unlikely that you will find such an integrated course in a single qualification. These skills are not taught in even MBA’s, which come at huge expense and time (2 years+). Further, this course is squarely aimed at a practical experience and with toolsets that will help you become a successful person at work. If a qualification is important to you, rather enlist at an accredited institution, University or College.

Can I do this at home?

Absolutely! Modules were designed to be in 45 minutes to one hour format, which is broken down into 5 to 10-minute sections. This makes it easy to do it at home. You will need an internet connection with just average bandwidth to download webinars and podcasts. We have purposefully designed these to use as little bandwidth as possible.

How many modules do the course consist of?

The course is divided into three primary blocks and with ten (10) modules in total covering these three blocks. There is also an exciting bonus module for you!

What makes the program unique?

Lots of things! Firstly, our approach is to help you improve your leadership through solid business results (rather than trying to “look good”).

Our focus is to improve your practical skills sets to improve your workplace leadership – for yourself and for your organisation. Secondly, we include the BTLS Business Thinking Styles module which focuses on your personal preferences and strengths, and thirdly, we round off the program with the powerful and practical ComSIM Business Simulation – a great way to learn further and to apply your learnings from the modules.

Lastly, Dr Christiaan is a world expert in experiential learning and with a solid business foundation, has only one thing in mind: “to empower my participants to achieve things that they have never thought to be possible before”.

How long is the average module and how long will it take to complete?

Each module consists of primary or standard content, which will typically take between 45 minutes and to 1.5 hours in total for each module. All the modules have been designed in such a way that we split the modules into smaller “chunks”. It will typically take between 1 to 3 evenings to cover each module.

The Professional and Premium programs also have optional “Dig Deeper” content which will consist of additional podcasts/webinars/videos, discussion forums and applicable articles/reading materials to help you immerse yourself in the content. “Dig Deeper” is completely optional but will expand your knowledge an understanding of the topic exponentially!

What is “Dig Deeper”

The Professional and Premium program have optional “Dig Deeper” content which will consist of additional downloads/podcasts/webinars/videos, discussion forums and applicable articles/reading materials to help you immerse yourself in the content.

We stay on top of these things and will gladly discuss it with our students to better understand these topics.

 

Dig Deeper” is optional but will expand your knowledge an understanding of the topic exponentially!

Can I skip modules if I am familiar with the content?

Yes, but, even If you are familiar with modules then we will still encourage you to go through them to ensure that we are all on the same page. Remember, we include the latest knowledge and new developments into the modules, so be careful not to assume that you are familiar with these latest developments.

Will I have access to guidance or coaching?

One of Dr Christiaan’s personal philosophies is that “empowerment underlies personal success” – if he can assist you in any way, please feel free to contact him for advice.

The Premium Program includes business coaching as standard. Business coaching is a powerful way to check your progress and understanding of the topics with a professional.

Another great benefit of business coaching is that it will empower you to develop yourself, but with accountability. Furthermore, with the help of the business coach, a personal implementation path for yourself will also be developed.

How many personal coaching sessions are in the Premium Program?

There are between eight and ten coaching sessions of 1.5 hours each. The cost for these is included in the program fee. Our coaching sessions have a structured approach that will guide you through the growth process. It is hugely empowering.

Which type of business coaches do we use in the Premium Program?

We know from experience that neuroscience-based business coaching delivers excellent results in this field. All our business coaches are registered professionals and experienced in career advancement.
