  • Ideas into Action

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits

    This course is designed to help organizations reshape their thinking on innovation and will teach you to understand different elements of creativity, how to build ideas in a group, how to let innovation flow without directives, and how to draw out creative ideas from new sources. Keywords: Creativity, Innovation, Driving Results, Team building

    Imagine this scenario: a panel of developers for a tech company meet to design a big product for the upcoming year. Although there are a dozen people in the room, the conversation is driven by eight top individuals, who are focused on updating software programs. Four others in the room have ideas about developing hardware instead, but think their ideas will not be well-received given the consensus. This is a culture whose innovation has become too focused in one area, determined by a minority of individuals.

    Often, a lack of innovation is less due to having unimaginative individuals, and more to do with an organization not tapping into all of its employee’s potential. After studying innovation among 759 companies based in 17 major markets, researchers found that corporate culture was a much more important driver of radical innovation than labor, capital, government or national culture. The study showed that only 9% of the estimated 1.5 million for-profit companies examined were active product innovators! This course is designed to help organizations reshape their thinking on innovation. This course will teach you to understand different elements of creativity, how to build ideas in a group, how to let innovation flow without directives, and how to draw out creative ideas from new sources.

  • Employee Engagement

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Highly engaged employees are emotionally committed to their organization’s goals and use their discretionary effort to go the extra mile on behalf of their organization. However only about one-third of the workforce is engaged. How can you engage employees? Keywords: Engagement, Management Strategies, Effective Communication, Productivity,

    How can you engage employees? Highly engaged employees are emotionally committed to their organization’s goals and use their discretionary effort to go the extra mile on behalf of their organization. Towers Watson conducted a Global Workforce Study and found that only about a third of the global workforce is highly engaged, leaving the remaining two-thirds less engaged or not engaged. What do employees who are not highly engaged do? They might look for work elsewhere—or perhaps even worse, stay and do the bare minimum to remain employed.

    There are many studies that investigate why good employees leave their jobs. These studies have consistently discovered the following reasons for employee departure:

    Lack of meaningful work

    Lack of trust and respect

    Lack of support from direct supervisors and management

    Lack of appreciation

    Constantly shifting priorities and reorganization

    Feeling ignored or micromanaged

  • Put It in Writing

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Effective preparation and presentation are key to reporting. Taking the time to plan—to identify your purpose, your reader, and your key points—offers numerous benefits, both to you and your organization. Quality reports help to add focus and context. Learn how to use the right information and the right delivery to communicate. Keywords: Communication, Presentations, Reports, Visual Aids

    Sharing information in the form of a report is an integral part of most workers’ daily responsibilities. Without the right information or the right delivery (both in writing and in person), a report can do more to hinder communication than support it. Many employees struggle in these areas, producing instead reports that are unorganized, wordy, overly formal or informal, and inconsistently formatted, resulting in unnecessary confusion and a loss of credibility. Effective preparation and presentation are key to reporting. Taking the time to plan—to identify your purpose, your reader, and your key points—offers numerous benefits, both to you and your organization. Quality reports help to add focus and context to decision making, manage expectations about current and future projects, instill accountability, encourage best practices and shared learning, and solve problems objectively.

  • Practical Project Management

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Learning to manage projects effectively not only benefits your organization, it benefits you. Today’s organizations rely on employees who can carry a project through from inception to completion, on time and on budget, making a more efficient use of resources and achieving a quality outcome. Thus, being able to manage projects successfully makes you more valuable to your organization and improves your career prospects by providing you with a critical skill. Keywords: Problem Solving, Results Orientation, Accountability, Communication, Stakeholder Management, Goal Setting

    Projects represent much of the work done in today’s organizations. Unfortunately, many organizations devote valuable resources, including employees’ time, to poorly conceived and implemented projects that do not achieve meaningful goals or are never completed. In fact, a study by PricewaterhouseCoopers found that fewer than 3% of companies successfully completed all of their projects. The effects of poorly conceived and implemented projects can be devastating to company success. The Harvard Business Review reported that the failure of IT projects in the United States costs $50 to $150 billion each year. Effective project management is essential if organizations are to succeed in today’s rapidly changing and highly competitive environment. Learning to manage projects effectively not only benefits your organization, it benefits you. Today’s organizations rely on employees who can carry a project through from inception to completion, on time and on budget, making a more efficient use of resources and achieving a quality outcome. Thus, being able to manage projects successfully makes you more valuable to your organization and improves your career prospects by providing you with a critical skill.

Keywords: Interpersonal Awareness, Communication Skills, Developing Others, Integrity/Honesty, Coaching for Success, Team Building, Leadership Presence, Emotional Intelligence in Leading Others, Great Leaders/Great Coaches, Collaboration Skills

It is someone whose primary concern is to help others realize their aspirations and achieve their greatest potential. In this course, participants discover how to shape an environment of support where everyone feels a sense of value and purpose – and where, as a result, organizational success is bound to naturally transpire.

Following management, participants learn how to help others to develop an intrinsic motivation to excel in their job (both individually and as part of a team). And the final module explores compassionate collaboration as a means of resolving conflict that results in maintaining, or even increasing, an atmosphere of trust and respect in the workplace.
