Too Much to Do and Too Little Time
Do you sometimes feel you have too much to do and not enough time to do it in? You aren't alone. It can be frustrating when you're expending a lot of energy but not sure you're doing it in the right places for the right reasons. Having goals is a good start. But do your goals align with your organization's goals for you? When goals shift and change and you don't know which are most important and to what degree you're supposed to be attending to them, it can get confusing. You have to be clear on where you're headed and why, otherwise your work getting there will be scattered and you won't make the best use of your time. In this course, you'll learn how to get clarity around what's most important - your goals - by ensuring they're aligned with those of your organization, so you can prioritize your work based on those goals.

You'll also learn how verbal signals, nonverbal behavior, and emotional intelligence can help make or break your communications.
