Course Description

Do you do things at work only when the boss tells you to? Do you have to be spoonfed instructions and only then will you carry out the work? Got to break it to you: bosses like employees who are proactive and willing to take initiative. 

Initiative is the ability to be resourceful and solve problems without having to be told. If you demonstrate initiative and enterprising behavior at work, you improve your chances of being recognised as a key asset to your team’s success. You are more likely to be promoted if you prove that you can ‘think’ and not just ‘do.’

This course will help you spot opportunities where you can prove you have initiative. Taking initiative may involve risks, however. This course will also help you identify and manage these risks.
