Course overview

When it comes to the workplace, you want your employees to be confident they are doing a good job. People feel they do their best work within their comfort zone. But real growth only happens outside that comfort zone. As a manager, it’s your job to encourage employees to take risks and stretch themselves as an important part of their development.

Supporting your employees to take reasonable risks as they strive toward achievable but challenging goals will ensure they’re engaged. And communicating in a way that motivates them without causing them stress will empower your teams to achieve their full potential.
