Sharpening Your Focus to Stay on Track
Even when you know your priorities and have an organized time management routine, you'll still be challenged every day by distractions, temptations, interruptions, and procrastination. To avoid causing internal time management detours, you have to develop ways to stay focused, and this often means using personal and interpersonal skills in very specific ways.

Personal Power and Credibility
Authority carries a certain positional power. A title grants a person some power and authority, but even that has its limits. To meet goals and get results requires developing a sense of personal power that goes beyond the job description and that print on the business card. Personal power stems from personal credibility, influence, and political savvy. Even those with the most humble job titles can know how to get things done. In this course, you'll learn how developing personal power and credibility, and using them for building trust with your coworkers and organization, allows you to increase your influence at work and reach your goals.

Developing a Mindset of Growth 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.
