What people are saying

        Generally, I enjoyed the course it was packed with insights and actionable ideas. I could say this course will help you to navigate your career in the direction that you want and arm you with the tools required for that.

        Got the course as I was interested in learning more about career management. The course covered that. However, what I loved – and what I can now confidently say, after a couple of months of completing the course, has improved my whole life and not just my career – is the Attention Management system. I'm absolutely very very satisfied!

        The Attention BIOS framework with IPARCA is the highlight of the course for me. It was immediately applicable to my life and I found it very valuable. There were some rough edges in the first cohort, but I still give the course 10 stars due to the value I gained from it.
