Workplace communication skills are so highly sought after by employers. Strong communicators can save their organizations time and money. Employees who can deliver engaging presentations can generate positive attention to the organization's mission. And workers who are strong collaborators can run efficient meetings, both live and virtual.
Ultimately, the ability to communicate with confidence and flair can keep a company focused on its organizational goals and help workers future-proof their careers.
- Personal Growth
Today's professionals are under an increasing amount of pressure to be able to "do it all," which can lead to unhealthy amounts of stress and a decrease in motivation and self-confidence. This course aims to help learners combat those struggles by focusing on the skills that can help them grow in both their professional and personal lives. Look at the importance of soft skills—such as time management, organization, and communication—in the modern workplace and gain practical tips for creative problem solving, goal setting, stress management, time management, and clear communication.
- Design Thinking
Companies must come up with innovative solutions to everyday challenges. Design thinking can be an effective tool for organizations looking for practical and creative ways to solve problems. This course will examine the benefits of design thinking and present strategies for generating innovative products and ideas that can set an organization apart from its competitors.
- Creativity & Innovation Toolkit
Creativity is the generation of new ideas by individuals and teams. Innovation is the process of converting those ideas into new products, business practices, and strategies that create value. Eliciting creative and innovative ideas within a group, team, or organization has become a crucial skill. The ability of leaders to nurture and protect new ideas is vital to the health of the organization.
Networking is an important skill at all stages of your career, whether you're searching for a job or looking to take the next steps in your industry. This is an overview of how to make effective professional connections and cultivate relationships that can help you over the course of your career. Explore networking challenges based on gender and personality type and learn practical tips for overcoming networking anxiety. Identify potential resources that can be used to expand your professional network.
- Build Your Personal Brand
Having a strong personal brand helps you stand out in a crowd. It can help you gain new and better clients, so you do better in your current job. In today's job marketplace, getting noticed is something that usually happens online. Employers use the web to check out job applicants, and they're increasingly likely to skip over those who don't have much of an online footprint. That's why it's so important for job applicants to have a strong and consistent web presence, one that announces and reinforces their own personal brand.
Building your brand is a continuous process. It involves gaining new experiences, new knowledge and skills, expanding your circle of relationships, and increasing the value that you bring to every work project and business relationship.
