Plato once said: 'Excellence is not a gift, but a skill that takes practice.' As licensed professionals, we are in constant pursuit of excellence and innovation in our work. This course defines what is engineering excellence, discusses how to achieve excellence in your field, and describes the eight attributes of successful companies from a New York Times bestseller In Search of Excellence: Lessons from America's Best-Run Companies by Thomas J. Peters and Robert H. Waterman Jr., which is ranked by Forbes as No.1 among the 20 most influential business books ever. Besides characteristics of Level 5 leaders and Maslow's motivational theory, you will learn the secrets of excellent companies as well as the mistakes of average companies. The knowledge imparted through this course will transform you from a technical expert to a successful leader.
The course has a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
