  • 1m 2s
  • 3m 23s

COURSES INCLUDED

Developing Personal Accountability
If your manager's approval isn't quite enough to motivate you to put in that extra effort you need to get ahead, then maybe you're ready to work on your personal accountability. Everyone must answer to an inner manager - an internal voice that tells you whether the job is done as well as you can do it. Choosing personal accountability means earning the approval of that inner manager. In this course, you'll learn the behaviors of accountable professionals, including stating commitments clearly and following through. You'll also learn how some very common behaviors, like making excuses and blaming others, work against accountability. The elements of an action plan for developing personal accountability are provided. Finally, you'll learn how the members of a team can improve their accountability together.

Becoming Your Own Best Coach
It's common career advice to find yourself a coach - someone to observe your attitudes, behaviors, and actions and then help you fine tune them to your best advantage. And it's fine advice. But for many, it's beyond their means and opportunity. But coaching doesn't always require an outsider. You can be your own - and maybe even your best - coach. Self-coaching is an accessible, affordable way to get to know yourself and take control of your own career. In this course, you will learn about the benefits of self-coaching. You will explore different tools for self-assessment and address different kinds of self-doubt before developing a growth plan for professional success.

Using Business Etiquette to Increase Your Professionalism
Business etiquette isn't just about getting and doing things right, it's about sending a message of professionalism and respect to superiors, fellow team members, and clients. When you are professional, polite, and appropriate in the workplace, you are taken more seriously. In this course, you will learn about the key components of business etiquette and how they apply in physical and remote office settings. You'll learn the reasons that dressing professionally can benefit your career and the importance of maintaining an orderly and professional work environment. You'll also be introduced to actions that ensure your communications such as emails, texts, work chat, social media, and video conferencing are at their most professional and polite. Finally, you will learn how tenets of business etiquette can be applied outside of the office environment at offsite events, business meals, and work socials.

Taking Responsibility for Your Accountability
Accountability is a mindset - a way of thinking about how to take responsibility for your life and ownership of your decisions. Accountability tends to drive success; it is action-oriented and geared toward constant improvement. In this course, you will learn how to develop a framework for personal accountability. From the foundations of a framework to daily practices and sustained momentum, this course will help you take ownership of your goals and live your values.

Developing a Mindset of Growth and Learning
You might think the term "growth mindset" refers to the growth of an organization, or even economic growth. While the effects of a growth mindset ripple throughout the business, it starts with an individual believing they are capable of growing, evolving, and learning. In this course, you'll learn how a growth mindset manifests, and why it can make life and work better in many ways. You'll also learn tools to build your growth mindset, challenge the fixed mindset thinking that can mire you in negativity, and employ resilience techniques to help you maintain an attitude of possibility, learning, and growth even in the face of setbacks.
