Personal development in Zagreb

Personal development in Zagreb is a semi-annual project whose purpose was to increase the quality of life of workshop participants through strengthening self-confidence and the application of procedures for modifying unwanted behavior.

The ultimate goal of the workshops was to encourage and enable the creation of quality excellence and the effective transfer of best practice within the private and work environment. At the workshops, participants adopted methods and tools useful for easier coping in stressful situations.
