Do you find it difficult to achieve your goals, especially when you are stuck in an entry level position? Motivation is this invisible force that drives you toward a goal and keeps you going when things get rough. It is the reason you wake up early or stay up late to finish your work. When you have big dreams and you want to achieve your goals, first take a moment to look at the big picture to find the right approach to start.
You must have a strong answer to WHY you want to reach your goal, in order to feel motivated. Make sure you really know what drives you and why you really want to complete your goal. This way, you will be 100% committed.
As you know, here at CCG we try to provide you with the very best training courses around because we know that the more you learn, the more you earn, right? So today’s free featured online course is all about drive and motivation and how we must push ourselves to meet our goals. This course is all about how we can’t just float through life without being completely conscious of being organized to complete our tasks daily.
Today’s featured online course is taught by Concordia University. The Functioning Above Entry Level online course helped me understand my own personal strengths and gain the confidence I needed to boldly move forward with my calling.
Here’s my takeaway:
This course was really well done with great content. It has a clean, simple platform that is easy to understand and follow. It also provided excellent guidance on something that I’m a huge fan of: self-reflection. Not everyone takes the time to self-reflect and I really believe it can make the difference between excellence and mediocrity. I know that when I feeling stuck or unmotivated, the best thing I can do is stop and ask myself, “Why do I feel this way?”, “What has happened recently that has shaped this feeling?”, “How can I move forward with skill and grace?”.
I have said this for years that the #1 key is to understand yourself and what makes you satisfied at work. You have to know your values/motivations, your purpose, your interests, your ideal workday, your ideal work environment and your favorite skills. In order to understand yourself better you have to take the time to self reflect. The only problem is, even if you take the time, sometimes you don’t know where to start. The good new is, this course gently guides you in the right direction so the time you take self reflecting is the most productive it can be.
This course consists of an introductory email, three lessons, and a thank you email after course completion.
This mini-course will put us on the path to master the following:
Internal and external forces affecting how we think. Time for some self-reflecting on emotional intelligence. Thinking more about HOW and WHY we do the things we do or react the way we react is the first step in understanding ourselves better.
Recognizing emotional intelligence and social intelligence factors giving us a better understanding of how we self-lead. Take some time to reflect on our leadership strengths. What has influenced us to mold those leadership strengths
Examining 10 key areas in our life important in moving us above entry level
The entire Functioning Above Entry Level mini-course can be considered a gentle reminder to have control over our emotions, thus having control over our life. Help us discover the four internal forces weigh upon us as we go through life and make decisions about our future. And lastly, understanding how external forces contribute to our well-being involves recognizing training, leadership, and national culture.
The course is free, delivered to your inbox, and takes about 1 week and 3 – 4 hours to complete
It consists of essays, videos, interactive polls, and download journals
All content is taken from Concordia University Wisconsin’s 100% online one year Master’s in Organizational Leadership and Administration
