DFWI develops the Professional Development components based on information gathered through its network of employers. The most common responses to surveys by employers are assembled into a series of workshops designed to highlight common barriers to successful employment.
The workshops address soft skills barriers to employment and build and reinforce an individual’s ability to manage interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships in a manner that ensures productive engagement in the labour market.

Directions For Wellness Inc. workshops are solidly based and delivered from an Adult Educational perspective. The workshops are designed to:

  • Engage the individual’s preferred learning style
  • Be experiential based utilizing Dr. David Kolb theories
  • Engage the cognitive, affective and psychomotor domains

The workshops are based on and modified from Saskatchewan NewStart Life Skills methodology. These experiential based workshops allow participants the opportunity to improve their intra and interpersonal skill development.
