As part of the ongoing mission of WKU’s Center for Training and Development (CTD), in partnership with faculty, we developed and delivered a newly created course, “Good to Great” on February1st. This course was requested by a board member of the Warren County Industrial Consortium.
Through the consortium CTD interacts with 34 companies. CTD provides quality training that is identified by business and industry. The first class Good to Great class had over 20 attendees, and we have already added another class this quarter.
This course is based on the ideas Jim Collins developed for his seminal book, “Good to Great.” As Collins notes, “It’s not really that much harder to be great than good, and if you’re not motivated to greatness, perhaps you should consider doing something else where you are.”
