Enhancing Work Satisfaction - Live Instructor-led Virtual Course

Research shows that people who have clearly defined, well-communicated expectations find more satisfaction and success in their work than people whose expectations go unspoken or unrealized. Certain expectations, such as salary, hours and job duties, are clear. Other expectations, however, often go unspoken or unacknowledged. This program helps each participant uncover the expectations they consider most important, and learn strategies for communicating or adjusting them for enhanced satisfaction at work.

Our on-line instructor-led Enhancing Work Satisfaction program requires minimum time away from one’s office duties. The individualized Work Expectations Profile® provides valuable personal insight while the reinforcement session helps participants maintain their focus.
