Power Up: Turning on Your Self-starter Potential
Self-starters take initiative, work without supervision, and begin projects independently. Organizations are always looking for people who come to the table with creative ideas, who find work that needs to be done and do it without waiting to be told. But self-starters also gain personal benefits from being someone who takes responsibility for their own happiness, the success of their work and relationships, the morale of their workplace, and their life. In this course, you'll learn the characteristics that most self-starters have in common, and why they are valued as employees and as leaders. You'll also learn the skills you need to build or enhance your own self-starting toolbox, the barriers you may encounter on the path to being a self-starter, and strategies to overcome those challenges.
