Participants will learn, in a completely practical way, to improve core skills for their professional careers, such as effective communication, leadership, teamwork, decision-making, among others. The sessions will be in-person and experiential, taking place during an intensive weekend at the TENT Hotel in Granada. They will be conducted by professional coaches with extensive experience in this field.
During the training sessions, breaks and socialization times are planned to facilitate participants getting to know each other, exchanging opinions, and building connections. The program also provides some meals and coffee breaks where participants can form a support network in a relaxed environment, contributing to a successful professional integration.
