Topics Covered

What Excites You at Work

While we often look to company leaders to inspire and energize the organization, it really doesn’t matter what your role is. Whether you a€™re a leader, manager, or individual contributor, you can make a difference in creating the inspiration and excitement needed for the future. All you need is to be clear on what excites you. Once you’re clear on this, you can share it with others. And when you share what energizes you with others, you wi€™ll be creating inspiration and energy for those around you.

This course provides an assessment to identify what excites you at work. In addition, you wi™ll find out how to share this information to support your career growth and inspire others about the great things happening at the company.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Know what excites you the most about the company and its future

Increase the Level of Challenge at Work

Challenging work is good for everyone. It stretches our capabilities, forces us to learn new things and tests our limits. It broadens our experience and builds our skills, enabling us to do new things or more complicated work. After completing something that is challenging, we tend to experience higher levels of satisfaction, knowing we did something that was difficult and not easy to do.

This course provides a group of actions you can select from to increase the level of challenge in your work. Remember, challenges are not always easy. They can be hard. However, through challenges we grow, develop and build our skills. This increase in experience then allows us to do more complicated work and strengthens our value to the organization.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Be able to identify the actions you can take to increase the level of challenge in your own work

Analyze Key Experiences for Lessons Learned

The most successful people use their past experiences to steer both current actions and behaviors, as well as future decisions. Our past experiences are filled with knowledge and wisdom. We learn quite a lot from all kinds of situations and experiences, both positive and negative. Through our past we gain a level of understanding and wisdom that would not be achieved had a particular situation not occurred.

This course will teach you how to take the time and make it a habit to methodically analyze and evaluate past experiences to understand what was learned, and to determine how that information can be applied. Successful people make this a habit all the time, and it certainly would be advantageous if you did too.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Be able to analyze key experiences from the last two years to discover what you’ve learned

Work-Life Balance for You

Most everyone desires some level of balance between work and their personal life. We want to be able to enjoy family, friends, and hobbies, while also contributing to the company and delivering great work. With that said, different people have different work-life balance needs. Some people have numerous family commitments, are actively involved in a personal hobby, or just have a certain number of hours they’re willing to work. Other people may have a personal drive to accomplish and achieve a variety of goals, and thus are willing to sacrifice more personal time for work time.

This course will teach you how to determine what level of balance is right for you. Once you know this, you can start to work with others to help create the best work situation possible. Keep in mind that as your situation changes, your work-life balance will change too.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Know what great work balance looks like for you

The Right Level of Challenge

Challenging work is important in any work situation. When our work provides the right level of challenge we stay interested in what we’re doing—we don’t become bored, we enjoy building new knowledge and capabilities, and we find it rewarding to accomplish something that was difficult and not easy to do.

As an individual employee you have the responsibility to ensure you have the right level of challenge at work. You are the one who can best take care of and be attuned to what is happening in your work situation. You need to be an advocate for yourself. You can do this by taking action to create the best work situation possible.

This course will meet with your manager to discuss the level of challenge in your work, as well as how you’d like to work together to ensure you have the right amount of challenge to grow, develop, and be successful.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Know how to talk to your boss about the right level of challenge for you

Subject Matter Expert

Vado offers 350+ employee soft skill and management development e-learning courses that is “changing the face of learning” with course design that includes the following elements:

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.
