  • Noncredit
View available sections

Your internal thoughts and attitudes have various impacts on the work environment and can be focused in certain ways to make you a better employee. Being able to identify your attitudes as well as keeping positive and motivated in the workplace are values that many employers seek out. Employees who are motivated and have positive attitudes can make a bigger impact on company goals and provide better experiences for customers. This is why having a positive professional attitude is such an important soft skill. Having a positive professional attitude makes you the type of person employers want to keep, as they know employees with healthy attitudes tend to be more dependable, helpful, and driven.

In this course, you will learn about healthy attitudes, how your attitude effects habits and behaviors, make connections to how attitudes fit in a job, and learn how to gain a more positive attitude through setting goals and exploring what motivates you.
