Taking Initiative (RTL)
Initiative is important at work. Employees who take initiative act instead of react – they complete tasks without being told, they spot opportunities and seize them, and they persist in the face of obstacles.
Employees who take initiative reflect a proactive culture. The organization is less likely to become a behind the times with a “we’ve always done it that way” attitude. Employee initiative can make a difference in many ways, including greater customer satisfaction, cost savings, new product ideas, and better problem-solving skills.
Taking Initiative: How to Inspire a Proactive Company Culture allows participants to develop skills in the framework of a four-step model that can be used for initiative efforts of all shapes and sizes. They will focus specifically on how to create positive change from a large-scale perspective. Participants learn how to identify, develop, sell, and implement ideas that produce a wide-array of long-term company benefits.
