You will learn this in Personal Effectiveness

Becoming an effective team player or leader starts with being able to effectively manage yourself. And effective self-management is all about making powerful, proactive decisions. Will you decide to focus your strengths on where they have the biggest impact, or will you allow your energy to be drained by forces beyond your control? The choice is yours.

After examining the fundamentals of personal effectiveness, this course opens you up to the skills necessary for thriving within teams. With personal accountability and authenticity, you will discover how powerful your contribution to teams can be. As a result, you will be able to accomplish more than before while experiencing greater satisfaction.


  • Your colleagues will benefit from your authentic contribution to the team
  • Your colleagues will view you as a decisive, self-reflected team member
  • Your colleagues will respect your boundaries and value your insights


Some of the self-effectiveness strategies covered in this course include defining goals through self-reflection, decision-making, and self-awareness, knowing when to say ‘yes’ and how to say ‘no’, and understanding your strengths and where to apply them. You will also learn about identifying areas for improvement, learning to stay ‘in the moment’ and remain focused and open-minded, and understanding and avoiding unconscious bias.

Additionally, the course will cover developing your communication and networking skills, mastering active listening, positive assertiveness, and asking powerful questions, as well as benefiting from giving and receiving constructive feedback, and understanding your role in teams while building stronger ties with others.
