Success in today’s workplace isn’t just a matter of having smart people or better technology; it’s a matter of having a team of passionate, highly motivated, and mentally prepared people in every position. To be competitive, corporate professionals must produce results despite the constant changes of a global marketplace, or dramatic shifts in the way work is done. This course begins by addressing barriers to creating and executing meaningful goals. This course next utilizes a template format to create goals that support a workplace that is proactive rather than reactive, where continuous goal creation and review leave little room for crisis, stress, or frustration.
As corporate professionals learn how to bring balance and direction to their goals, they can develop and leverage a professional vision that not only improves their performance at work, but also adds to their quality of life.
This course is appropriate for corporate professionals across the organization (e.g., Finance, Human Resources, Marketing, Information Technology, etc.).
Specific areas addressed include:
• Helping individuals prepare for success by addressing barriers that can hinder desired outcomes
• Facilitating the discovery of individuals’ workplace knowledge, skills, and/or abilities
• Teaching how to use workplace talents to achieve desired goal outcomes
