The 15 critical skills students and employees need to thrive in the new world of work.
1. Self Awareness / Awareness & Potential
What does it mean to work well with others? You have your own unique tendencies and preferences that shape the way you work, how others work with you, how you view others, and how others view you. Understanding yourself—your working style, professional strengths, and interests—is not only the first step in identifying your best career fit but also critical to your long-term professional success.
2. Effective Teamwork / Working in Teams
Teamwork is one of the most valued skills in any professional context. Whatever your chosen career, at some point your success will depend on your ability to work with a team. This lesson will equip you with the skills you need to build a team, move past conflict productively, develop norms to guide collaboration, run meetings effectively, and provide constructive feedback.
3. Effective Communication / Communicating Ideas
Have you ever sent an email that was misunderstood or misinterpreted? Have you ever made a phone call when you should have addressed an issue face-to-face? Effective communication is crucial to your success in the workplace. This lesson will prepare you to develop a compelling voice, communication style, and professional presence. Whether writing a proposal or delivering a presentation, you will be ready to deliver a message that achieves your intended impact.
4. Organizational IQ
Before you decide on a direction for your career, you’ll want to evaluate different types of organizations and roles and the opportunities they offer. Brushing up on your “Organizational IQ,” will equip you with the knowledge you need to begin mapping out your own professional journey.
5. Project Planning / Process & Execution
You’ve likely been part of a project in some form: designing a final presentation, hosting a dinner, organizing a birthday party. Was it successful? Could something have been improved? Regardless of the scale of a project, good project planning takes time management, task and resource prioritization, and effective leadership. In this unit, you’ll explore each phase of project management and fine-tune your project execution skills.
6. Problem Solving
Effective professionals are effective problem-solvers. This unit will introduce you to a problem-solving framework that can help you work toward high-impact solutions to any number of personal and professional challenges.
7. Design Thinking
There is a saying that “good design is invisible,” meaning that effective design seamlessly achieves the designer’s aims and fits the user’s needs. How do designers achieve this ideal? In this unit, you will be introduced to the principles of design thinking and learn how innovators, problem-solvers, and designers alike develop solutions to challenging problems and put humans at the center of their design efforts.
8. Effective Research / Fact Discovery
Throughout your career, you’re going to have to make critical decisions. These important decisions should be informed ones. You won't necessarily be able to walk into a meeting and simply present facts; you'll have to prove and support them. Effective research drives thoughtful decision-making in business as in life. This unit will share best practices for designing and conducting quality research.
9. Data Analysis
Employers in a wide range of professions value Microsoft Excel proficiency. While Microsoft Excel is a powerful calculator and communication tool, it is simply that: a tool you can use to analyze and understand data. Excel is only as powerful as your thoughtful analytical approach. In this unit, you will learn Excel basics, and ways to use Excel to calculate market size and analyze survey data.
10. Financial Analysis / Organizational Finance
Data drives every business decision. Your ability to read and interpret an income statement and perform basic business analyses will set you apart regardless of your career path. If you understand the numbers, you will be equipped to make critical decisions and drive change within your organization.
11. Personal Finance
Where is your money going? How much are you spending on food, clothing, and housing every month? How much are you saving? Do you have money set aside for an emergency? Personal finance may seem intimidating, but learning how to manage your money now will save you pain in the future. This unit will show you how to build and stick to a budget, track your spending and saving, identify investment opportunities, and manage credit appropriately. Once you understand your priorities and spending habits, you can plan your career accordingly, following your passions and interests rather than allowing monetary decisions to drive your career development.
12. Career Roadmap / Career Strategy
When you were young, what did you want to be when you grew up? What do you want to be now? It's natural for your career goals to change and evolve over time. In today’s unit, you will develop a career roadmap, learning how to align your passions, strengths, and abilities with your professional aspirations. This unit will help you further define the key strengths you have, the skills you need to develop, and a plan to achieve the career you want.
13. Personal Pitch / Value, Pitch & Resume
To get your dream job, you have to sell yourself. You need to be able to tell a clear and compelling story about your professional skills and experiences. This unit will help you develop the tools (your pitch, resume, and cover letter) to unlock opportunities and find the job of your dreams.
14. Interview and Networking
You have developed a number of key skills throughout this course; however, in your career search, interview and networking skills may be the most important of all. To land your dream job, you must build a network, leverage connections, and navigate a challenging interview process. This unit will help you develop these critical networking and interview skills.
15. Capstone Project / Capstone Experience
Your capstone project brings together all your hard work throughout this course. This is an opportunity for you to showcase the skills you have developed. Will you be able to convince your colleagues to launch your product or service?
