For this course you’ll create a compelling branding statement. One that describes the type of work you love to do.

Identify Potential Career Opportunities

The challenge for everyone is to define the career path they want to take, and then create a plan to get there. However, before a plan can be made, we have to determine where we want to go, and what we want to do. This isn’t always easy. Sometimes we may know exactly what we want to do, but often times we’re not sure, and more importantly, don’t know what opportunities exist.

When we develop, we are able to perform our job better, contribute more to the team, and feel confident about what we can do and deliver. Yet our workdays are busy, and development can be hard. Sometimes we don’t know what to do, and sometimes we struggle to find the time to build our capabilities.

When we build capabilities and gain expertise, our work becomes more fulfilling and rewarding. We are also better equipped to take on more challenging roles and higher levels of responsibility.

For this course you will work on your own to identify skill development opportunities for yourself, however, if you have direct reports, you can also work with your employees to help them identify opportunities too.

Personal Skill Development Plan

To build your career you need opportunities. The more opportunities you have, the better chance you have of moving into a role that is exciting, challenging, and fulfilling.

  • Be able to create a personal skill development plan

Increase Your Personal Performance

Building the right skills and capabilities is a necessary component of success for everyone. If we don’t have the right skills we cannot perform our job well, and we won’t be successful long-term. Therefore, it is essential each of us take the time to identify the skills required for our job, and to spend the time strengthening existing skills and developing new ones. Individuals who are consistently focused on developing themselves have an advantage in the workplace and will have greater success long-term.

For this course you will identify the skill you’d like to strengthen or develop.

  • Know how to build the skills required to increase personal performance

Best Professional Organizations for You

Individuals who continually seek out professional development opportunities are extremely valuable to any company. These individuals contribute at a higher level, are seen as action oriented players, and tend to have greater success than individuals who are only focused on doing their job.

For this course this help you select the right professional organizations for your personal development.

This professional network can provide problem-solving resources for your current job, as well as lead to great opportunities in the future.

Personal Expectations and Your Workload

Our work can be very rewarding and fulfilling. There is a certain level of satisfaction gained when we solve a difficult problem, help a customer, or finish a particular task or project. Of course our work helps us pay our bills and maintain our livelihood too all of which is a good thing. With that said, most of us also want to maintain a life outside of work; one in which we spend time with family and friends, have the opportunity to pursue our hobbies and interests, and have the chance to relax and not think about work. We desire a balance between work and our personal life.

This course will help you compare your expectations against what is truly realistic for your job. Once we do this, we can identify how to create the right balance, thus ensuring both our work and personal commitments can be met.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Be able to check your personal expectations regarding your workload and job requirements

Development Happens on the Job. Research shows that 70% of development happens on the job, and Vado is the only off the shelf e-learning courseware provider that helps the learner apply on the job through step by step instructions.

Chucked Learning. Some call it granular, others call it chunked, microlearning or learning bursts . They mean the same thing – learners want short learning courses. Study after study shows that taking in information in small bite sized chunks leads to increased learner retention. The market has been recognizing this trend toward shorter and shorter learning courses and have shortened e-learning courses from 4 hours to 1 hour to 30 minutes. Our learning content takes this trend to the next step to meet the demands of learners.

Video. In their personal life, employees learn new information by watching videos and they have come to expect that on the job. All of Vado’s courses start with a short instructional video. And the videos are in high definition for a better learner experience.

Optimized for the mobile learner. Mobile means two things: technology and the learner experience. Vado’s learning content is optimized for both meanings. From a technology standpoint, all 300+ courses are viewable from all hand held devices. From a learner experience perspective, small bite sized videos fit the mobile learners’ requirement of not having to complete long courses on their hand held device.
