Being Business Savvy

part of The Starling Way.

Engage in a survey of the past and present of the Corporate American system, the structure of business, and how to navigate within them to find happiness and thrive in your role.

Topics covered:
  • History of Corporate America

  • Business Structures & Organization

  • Your Role as a Mid-level Leader

  • Values Inventory Worksheet

  • Corporate Analysis Framework

  • Personal Development Plan 

We also take sidesteps into the history of humans’ relationship with work and conscious capitalism, and get real about ethics, toxic workplaces, income inequality and corporate pay disparities.

Understanding the systems and structures that you operate within is critical to navigating them with success. By the end of this course, we hope you will have greater insight into the present state of business and confidence in your ability to impact it.
