Expires After: Does not Expire

Are you lonely?
Do you work on your own, or hate making decisions?
Hold a meeting.
You can see people, draw flowcharts, feel important, and impress your colleagues.
All on your company’s time.
Meetings –
The practical alternative to work!

There are a lot of jokes about meetings, such as, “The only thing decided at meetings is when to hold the next meeting.”

However, one executive we know remarked to a group of junior executives that if they wanted to grow and advance in business, they better learn to love meetings. Meetings are where much of the day-to-day work of business gets done.

That being said this course will help you plan and conduct effective meetings.

So let’s get started.

What are Ethics?

Ethics have been a prime topic for discussion since the earliest of times when primitive man first learned to reason. Most of the great books throughout history address the topic of ethics. As with any heavily researched subject, there are many definitions of ethics. This course explores some definitions of ethics and the various terms associated with ethics.

This course will help you define terminology related to ethics, and present you with many ethical situations to consider and discuss with colleagues, friends, and family.


Informal Conflict Resolution (ICRS) V 1.0
Expires After: Does not Expire

“Red Light.”

“Green Light.”

The Informal Conflict Resolution System (ICRS), uses the image of a traffic signal or lights on a control panel. It gives us a way to handle what may be inappropriate behavior either immediately on the spot, or after the fact in an informal fashion. That way, initial disagreements or conflicts may be removed at a low level before they become formal or official.

In this course you will learn to evaluate conflict versus tension, and how to resolve conflict in any of four roles: Recipient, Offender, Observer, or Supervisor.

You will also learn that oftentimes some additional training or information may help us understand “Why they act that way.”

All this can make for more professional and enjoyable relationships.
