Taking the initiative is a crucial step in moving forward in our professional and personal lives. By showing initiative, it reflects us in a positive light to others as well as builds our own self-esteem. If we want something to happen, we need to make it happen. That is what initiative is all about. Take opportunities and run with them. Do not let excuses cause you to miss out on amazing opportunities. See what you want, believe what you want, and make it happen.

With our Taking Initiative course, participants will learn what initiative is, how to take it on, the advantages of it, and when to know one's place. By enrolling in this course, participants will be taking the first step in making something positive happen for them! Now that is initiative!
