Course Overview

From before we start our first job, we often dreamt about what career we wanted to have when we grew up. Soon, we start the journey to find the job we want to have and discover ways to make it happen. But that’s only half the battle. Once you’ve landed the job you want, you have to know ways to not only stay in your job field, but also excel in it.

Research has consistently demonstrated that when clear goals are associated with learning, it occurs more easily and rapidly. At the end of this course, you should be able to:

Identify what initiative looks like
Recognize when you can take steps outside the normal
Build confidence in themselves
Learn to find opportunities
Learn good and bad aspects of initiative
Balance initiative and restraint
