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.

Becoming an Accountable Professional
Unless you're the sole owner and proprietor, everyone in a business answers to someone else. From the CEO to the temp in accounting, every employee has someone they're accountable to. But the judgment and approval of the boss isn't enough, by itself, to make a job rewarding. Everyone must also answer to an inner boss, a personal, internal voice that provides guidance on whether the job is done as well as you can do it. Accepting personal accountability means your setting demanding standards and committing to meeting them. Further, personal accountability is also key to successful business networking. It's a necessary part of building trust and relationships. In this course, you'll learn how to listen to your inner boss, focus on meeting your internal standards, and apply them to your work, your goals, and your future.

Developing a Personal Accountability Framework
You are juggling a lot of competing tasks.  Meeting deadlines, production targets, and business objectives are serious responsibilities. It's tempting, at times, to find easy ways out of fulfilling them, or to use excuses as to why you can't. But to be accountable is part of being a professional. Demonstrating your personal and professional accountability is key to your ongoing success. Building accountability is a process of showing that you're a reliable, organized, and dedicated person, and further, ensuring  accountability means taking ownership of your responsibilities. In this course you'll learn how to show leadership accountability, implementing strategies for setting goals, developing an action plan, and seeing all those competing tasks through to completion.

Developing a Growth Mindset
In the workplace, there are two specific types of mindsets, or attitudes, that can either promote personal growth and resilience or hamper an employee’s performance. People with a growth mindset achieve ever-higher levels of productivity and can help their organizations thrive; by contrast, people with a fixed mindset tend not to develop professionally, and may hinder an organization’s goals. In this course, you'll learn about the characteristics of a growth mindset, such as perseverance, and how to distinguish it from a fixed mindset. You’ll also explore methods of developing mindsets for success, and how professional growth can benefit you and your organization.
