For a brief on Initiative taking, its an emotional skill defined as an attitude or act of anticipation and proposing a solution before someone asks for it but there’s more to it. By showing initiative, it reflects us in a positive light to others as well as builds our own self-esteem. If we want something to happen, we need to make it happen. That is what initiative is all about. Take opportunities and run with them. Do not let excuses cause you to miss out on amazing opportunities. See what you want, believe what you want, and make it happen.
