Personal Empowerment: Taking Initiative
November 21, 2013 / 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. / SLCC Miller Campus / Cost: $149.00

If people see empowerment as something that is given to them, they will miss out on opportunities to take responsibility for action, or to take initiative to solve problems, improve processes, and give your company a competitive edge.

This course seeks to change the mind-set that empowerment is something that is given. It helps employees see that they can and should look for improvement opportunities.

Common leadership challenges within organizations:
• Do people in your organization hesitate to suggest ways to improve work processes or to take prompt action when issues surface?
• Do people who aren’t the “leader” call a meeting to discuss a potential problem?

Objectives - Assist leaders to:
• Make their jobs more interesting, motivating, and rewarding
• Become more valuable to the organization
• Help their group or organization be more effective and successful
• Take responsibility for their own success in multiple aspects of work life
