Feedback is a wonderful tool. It can help you improve and excel by leaps and bounds. But how do you obtain it? That's what we'll go through here. We'll walk you through the who, when, and how of asking for feedback, giving you the scoop on getting the scoop.
This program is about understanding what you're good at, what your strengths are, and then continually improving upon those strengths. You might be thinking, "If it's already a strength, shouldn't I focus on something I'm not good at, so I can get better at that?" Well, by developing your strengths, you're maximizing your performance. So in this course, we want to help you get the most out of what you're good at. We'll go over what you need to focus on, how to create more opportunities to utilize your strengths more often, and how to play to your strengths so you're not wasting precious resources on your weaknesses.
"A strength is the ability to consistently provide near-perfect performance in a specific activity." Think about what you're good at. Think about what comes naturally to you. Think about the parts of your job you really enjoy. Have you ever started a task and you get so involved you lose track of time? Suddenly, the work day is over? Those are probably areas of strength for you. Before you can leverage your strengths, you need to know what they are. There are several ways that you can find out, and that's what this program is all about. We'll go over the importance of getting feedback, doing strength assessments, using career coaches, and more.
Management expert Ken Blanchard says, "Feedback is the breakfast of champions." Are you getting your proper intake of feedback? By getting regular feedback, and properly digesting it, you're feeding the need for self-awareness. In this course, we teach you how to use these morsels of information to identify where you're at, and which way you should head, so you can blaze that trail to success.
The most successful professionals are the ones who take charge of their careers. Your goals are only as effective as the plan you create to accomplish them. In this program, we'll go over what that plan should look like and the small steps you can take in the next week, month, or six months to get closer to achieving your goals. We'll discuss your work bucket list, "dream storming", finding inspiration, creating a timeline, and sharing and comparing your bucket list. We'll also go over some concrete steps you can take to help you achieve your goals.
There could be a lot of reasons why you aren't moving forward in your job. It could be there's no position at your company for you to move to. Perhaps your boss doesn't think you're ready. Part of taking control of your career involves knowing yourself. What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses? Where can you improve? How do you do that? In this course, we'll take a look at three categories of workers: unskilled, skilled, and overused skill. If you fall into the unskilled category in certain areas, how do you move to the skilled area, and how do you stay there? That's what this program is all about.
Taking control of your career is all about taking action. Individuals who have the most career success are the ones who take full ownership and invest in themselves. In this course, we're going to look at some points that will help you take control of your career including strengthening your skills for you as an individual, not for a corporation, avoiding career complacency, dodging the corporate bubble, neglecting your network, and communicating with your higher-ups.
Painter Benjamin Haydon said, "Fortunately for serious minds, a bias recognized is a bias sterilized." Whether we'd like to admit it or not, we all have biases. You're probably not even aware of some of yours. In this course, we look at how they are formed, what they can look like, and why it's so important to gain "consciousness."
"Who, me, biased? Only other people are so shallow and narrow-minded! They weren't blessed with the same good understanding or intellect that I was!" Have you ever had thoughts like this? Contrary to popular belief, we all have unconscious biases. We can even be biased about being biased! But the first steps to recovery involve acknowledgement and identification, and this course is here to help. It shows us different types of unconscious bias and how they occur, therefore enabling us to move along the path to enlightenment.
Carl Jung said, "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate." Sure, we all have unconscious biases. But we don't have to let them be in control. As this course explains, you can take steps to recognize and overcome these false assumptions, opening yourself up to a new world of richness and diversity.
