Specialist Certificate: Workplace Productivity


If your business focus is working with micro and small businesses, the workplace productivity track is a great place to start building your knowledge and hone in on this market. This educational track will help you to strengthen your foundation in workplace productivity through the development of three basic class divisions. Choosing classes from each division will equip the workplace productivity consultant with a well-rounded diversity of knowledge:
  • The Core classes focus on factors affecting managing business aspects like planning, staffing, and business issues and productivity including project and team management. 
  • The Client Interaction classes focus on ways in which you inter-personally relate to your clients through recognition and boundaries and help you to connect with your clients to provide a teaching environment. 
  • The Skills classes offer a variety of subjects to sharpen already present skill sets or to add new tools to your toolbox to expand your marketability for helping business clients remain relevant in a demanding professional environment.
