Course Overview

In this competitive, global economy, business leaders expect you to go beyond the technical aspects of your job and think like a businessperson. In fact, strategic business understanding was one of eight key differentiators of top performers according to the WorldatWork 2012 Total Rewards Professionals’ Career Census.

To gain this understanding, you must embody business-acumen skills – knowing what’s going on around you and how the business works internally and externally. Having a keen sense of business knowledge is essential for better decision making and driving long-term positive results for your organization.

This course covers the essential skills, behaviors and actions that support the understanding and development of business acumen – helping you learn to see “the big picture,” understand finance concepts, recognize the important relationship between compensation plans and the bottom line, and make wiser decisions.

  • Learn what it takes to apply key business acumen skills and behaviors.
  • Understand, evaluate, and articulate the relationship between compensation and business outcomes.
  • Grasp essential financial concepts.
  • Know how your business works and recognize the relationship between the compensation plan and the bottom line.
  • Strengthen communication skills.
