Initiative — you know it when you see it. 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.
Taking Initiative: How to Inspire a Proactive Company Culture allows participants to develop these skills in the framework of a four-step model that can be used for initiative efforts of all shapes and sizes; however, focuses specifically on how to effect 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. To put the concept of initiative into greater perspective, throughout the program participants are asked to apply the learned techniques to a case study that focuses on an employee who is working to organize a company-wide charitable event as a way to boost employee morale.
