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 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.

Available as classroom training and as a self-study e-learning program, Taking Initiative is part of the Reproducible Training Library, a full suite of unlimited-use content that's downloadable, customizable, and reproducible. Easy to edit in both Microsoft Word and PowerPoint files, this training solution is an affordable, one-time purchase and yours to reproduce as needed.
