Instructor for this course

Success in today’s workplace isn’t just a matter of having smart people or better technology; it’s a matter of having a team of passionate, highly motivated, and mentally prepared people in every position. To be competitive, corporate professionals must produce results despite the constant changes of a global marketplace, or dramatic shifts in the way work is done. This course begins by addressing barriers to creating and executing meaningful goals. The course next utilizes a template format to create goals that support a workplace that is proactive rather than reactive, where continuous goal creation and review leave little room for crisis, stress, or frustration.

As corporate professionals learn how to bring balance and direction to their goals, they can develop and leverage a professional vision that not only improves their performance at work, but also adds to their quality of life.

This course is appropriate for corporate professionals across the organization (e.g., Finance, Human Resources, Marketing, Information Technology, etc.).

Specific areas addressed include:

• Helping individuals prepare for success by addressing barriers that can hinder desired outcomes
• Facilitating the discovery of individuals’ workplace knowledge, skills, and/or abilities
• Teaching how to use workplace talents to achieve desired goal outcomes

At first I was honestly taken aback by the instructor’s rather slow pace of speaking, but it did not take time to see how she is leading us through a process of deep introspection. I expect to use the challenging questions posed not only for business but for all aspects of my life.

Pretty academic and theoretical - for instance, in talking about goals, the statement was made that they "need to be realistic for you". Of course they do. But if you don't already know how to assess that, you won't learn it in this course.

This course gave a great foundation to goal setting, particularly in identifying barriers, reacting to and resolving those barriers, and helping to identify the best / worst outcomes of things occurring / not occurring.

The course is interesting and full of information. The speaker was able to discuss every detail and is very organized in the manner of presenting. She also gave so many insights for easy and better understanding.

Some helpful concepts and reiteration, I enjoyed the subject matter. However, the deck and graphics are super dated.
