I’ve had first-hand experience of COVID – 19 as a close contact and testing positive. Isolating over both the instances was challenging. The solace being, I used this time to recalibrate and re-access my professional goals. I’ve challenged myself to complete the CLTD and SCOR-P program by the 3rd quarter of 2022.
If you are in the process of recalibrating and re-accessing your professional goals look at some of the global gold standard program highlighted below.
Take care, be safe and look after yourself.
