Becoming a Highly Effective Employee

Professional success begins with an understanding of what it takes to be a great employee. At the Learning Lot, we have a common work philosophy called S-O-S, or See-Own-Solve. This philosophy embodies the attitudes and skills required to be successful at the Learning Lot and throughout your professional career.

This module will introduce you to the specifics of our S-O-S work philosophy, and also to the skills and habits that will make you a great employee.
