Feeling valued and important at work is critical for everyone. We all want to believe our work and contribution matters to the team and organization. We want to know we are valued for who we are and what we do. When we think our contribution and effort doesn’t matter, our motivation and desire to work hard suffers. In addition, our ability to deliver quality work and a high level of performance goes down—we become disengaged employees. For this course you will identify a few key points regarding the importance and value of your employees’ work and how they contribute to the team and organization. You’ll then meet with each of your employees to build rapport, talk openly and honestly, and share specific details regarding how the person really matters to the team and company. By completing this course, you will be able to discuss with your employees why you value them, why they’re important to the team and company. This course has been approved for 1 hour of PDU credit from PMI (Project Management Institute). An Elearning! Magazine Excellence Award Winner: Management Development Learning Track.
