5. Thinking Critically, Thinking Creatively

Innovation and creativity are critical for the work we do at BC Housing.

In this course, learners will examine and expand their own mindset around their own thinking habits, the assumptions and biases that inform them and the results of their decision making processes. This course will support learners’ capacity to make better decisions and will lay the foundation for innovative thinking and creativity in the workplace.

6. The “Me” in Team

The ability to work effectively in a team is critical to workplace success and job satisfaction; individual behaviours can either support, or detract from, a positive team environment.

Learners will assess their role in the team environment, as leaders and as team members, and identify tools and strategies for contributing effectively to a high functioning team.

7. Authenticity in Action

Being a leader requires that you福彩app是正规的吗 show up and be seen. In this course, learners will explore how they show up in their work and what holds them back. Through activities and discussions, learners will gain a deeper understanding of their relationship to risk-taking, vulnerability and authenticity and how these concepts underpin how they want to show up in their role with BC Housing.

8. Your Brain in Positive

For a community to thrive, it is dependent on individuals to find relevance and meaning that benefits themselves, groups, organizations, and communities. In this course, learners will explore techniques to enhance their fulfillment whether at work or at play. Tools to build resiliency, to re-wire our brains to positive, to explore what it is to flourish to find meaning and fulfillment will lead learners on a path of well-being that will be personally and professionally significant.
