Course Overview:

A company's organizational structure has a significant impact on how well a company performs and how well its employees work together to achieve common goals. Employees who are excited about being at work each day tend to be more conscientious, yield higher quality work, have more momentum, and are less likely to allow themselves to become distracted. In this course, you will learn about the right ways to energize employees, how to build morale in the workplace and how to stimulate creativity and capitalize on employee energy to direct cultural change.

Pushing for change can result in a more competitive organization. But change does not guarantee success and involves risk and cost. However, not doing anything can be risky and costly too. This course also addresses the importance of change and why it's essential to speak up when you see something that can be done better or handled differently. Taking this course will allow you to look at your organization with new perspective and contemplate how it can become more competitive and grow in the marketplace. This course includes:

  • Changes in Corporate Culture
  • Keeping Employees Energized

  • I want to be a leader!!!I thought leadership is a hereditary thing. It should be streaming along with your ancestry blood. But wait! I am wrong. This course taught me to learn how to be a leader. It is not hereditary. It is a skill that everybody should learn. Leader initiates good changes, so managing the people is vital to be an effective leader. Thanks for LearnSmart LLC.

  • A Complete Jumpstart - What has impressed me the most is the depth of the content to this coarse. Each HD video is crystal clear in both the visual and audio, even including quality closed captioning (great for reading along with the lectures). I wasn't interested in the flashcards or the crossword puzzles when I started the program, but I've found them to be very useful in staying engaged in the class when away from home. This is everything you need to get started and have a classroom quality experience from home. Dive in and stay focused! -- P.C.
