Full course description


Most of us encounter problems in the workplace daily. Do you know how to recognize and respond to them effectively? Are they being solved? Or are they often ignored with the hope that somehow, they will resolve on their own?

In this introductory online course, we’ll establish some principles and practices that are foundational and useful in any workplace context and examine standard problem-solving approaches. You’ll demonstrate your problem-solving skills by using what you’ve learned to implement a solution to a workplace problem of your choice.

This workshop is eligible for a Novice-Level Digital Badge. To earn the digital badge, you must complete all activities and score an 85% or better on assignments.
