For engineers expected to manage people and projects, this course teaches what you wished you had learned in college.
We often get frustrated by our lack of control or power to get others to change. Yet, the key to mastering working with others to shift their behaviors is to master shifting your own.This fun, engaging course turns all of your pre-conceived notions of why people do not change on their head and provides 8 critical practices to shifting your own behaviors so you can powerfully shift others.

Organizationally, building a team that masters these practices ensures an unstopping, quick-shifting, ever-learning organization that will not stagnate nor fail to innovate in ever-changing economic and cultural times.
