Description: Why are your peers thriving while you’re stuck in a rut? No matter how hard you work, you can’t seem to get attention or respect, let alone those coveted opportunities to shine. Some people naturally attribute the success of others to natural talent, fortunate breaks, or knowing the right people. In reality, success is a matter of scientific truths as much as pluck and luck. In this course, Caproni will examine decades of research to distill what makes people successful at work — and beyond. As part of this course, students will examine strategies for setting goals, along with monitoring their progress and achieving their objectives. In addition, students will look at how they bring value to others and how their self-limiting beliefs hinder their career progression. Even more, the course will share proven strategies for building personal brand and cultivating mutually beneficial relationships. In a nutshell, students will come away knowing “what the most successful people do differently than others, why IQ is not the most significant predictor of success (and can sometimes backfire), and why many commonly held beliefs hold people back from achieving their goals.” The course will conclude with students authoring their own action plans.
