Struggling to meet commitments

0.25 CPD Units Online
When we make a commitment to someone, we are making a promise, stating we’ll have something done by a particular time or date. If we frequently miss commitments and don’t deliver, others come to believe we can’t be relied on and start not to trust what we say. This is not good. To be successful in any job, we must build our credibility, trust, and respect with others. This enables us to have strong working relationships, which are a critical component to our success in whatever it is we do.

This course will help you identify the factors impacting your ability to keep your commitments. Once you have a clear understanding of the issue affecting your behavior, you’ll then turn your attention to selecting one or two actions you are willing to do that will strengthen your ability to keep you personal and work commitments. By completing this course, you will know how to solve for the reasons you struggle to meet commitments

Team listening

0.25 CPD Units Online
When we don’t listen, we are typically distracted, thinking about something else, and not giving the person our full attention. This gives the impression that what the person has to say is not important and that we don’t value the person’s thoughts and opinions. This can lead to a strained relationship. When this happens between team members, it can lead to mistrust and reluctance to share critical information. As you can imagine, this is never good.

This course will present an exercise you do with your team, focusing on the key communication skill of listening. By completing this course, you will help you team know how well they listen to their co-workers and peers.
