Ongoing changes in the global economy have companies restructuring what they do and how they function; reorganizing divisions and departments; re-engineering work processes, and redeploying people. As a result, employees face constantly changing roles and responsibilities that can leave them feeling isolated, confused, and unproductive. Managers, facing the same types of pressures, rarely have time to give employees the kind of one-on-one attention that might help them rediscover their sense of purpose and commitment.
The key competencies needed to succeed in the workplace are:
Being Your Best: the awareness of how personal attitudes and choices you make ultimately determine your success. You will come to terms with what you have to offer; explore your beliefs about work and what motivates you to succeed; and learn how to use your creativity and intuition, clarify the roles you play at work, adapt to change, and achieve goals.
Getting Along with Others: the behavior and skills that enhance communication and relationships. You will learn how to build trust, develop rapport when communicating, deal with differences and conflict, and present yourself assertively to colleagues.
Contributing to Your Company's Success: the organizational dynamics that create and support a productive work environment. You will learn tools to determine where you fit into your company’s big picture; work as part of a team; understand how your company evaluates the bottom line; add value to your organization; and develop personal approaches to being a leader.
This course guides you through a process of self-directed learning to develop these key competencies in self-management, interpersonal relations, and exceeding employer expectations.
Integrating What You Do with Who You Are
Integrating What You Do
With Who You Are
You will spend much of your life in the pursuit of and doing "work". Work provides you with a livelihood, a career, and opportunities for personal and professional growth. The work you do affords you the lifelong opportunity to learn new behaviors and skills and have new experiences that connect you with other people and society at large.
Integrating "what you do with who you are" means aligning your work or professional life with your personal values, beliefs, and identity. It involves bringing your authentic self to the workplace and incorporating your unique strengths, passions, and interests into your work.
When you integrate what you do with who you are, work no longer feels like a separate or disconnected aspect of your life. Instead, it becomes an extension of your identity, a way to express your values and contribute to a larger purpose. You are more likely to experience a sense of fulfillment and purpose in your work, and to feel more engaged and motivated to make a difference.
So, the question becomes -- can you approach work from the perspective of an ongoing journey to maintain awareness of what is going on inside you while coming to terms with what in your outer experience nurtures you and what you must move through or beyond?
This course will facilitate you through a process that can lead you to have a more meaningful, authentic, purposeful, satisfying, and fulfilling life.
