Build Resilience Through Perseverance

We all know people who seem resilient and able to carry on in the face of difficulties. They allow a little stress to help them maximize their perseverance, be creative, and learn from the experience. This course presents ways to be more resilient in the face of difficulties. You will learn how to persevere and…

Break the Crazy Busy Cycle

Managers must be role models for others, and that means using time to the best advantage. This doesn’t mean cramming as much as possible into a day. It means learning new techniques to help avoid distractions and automatic time-wasters. In this course you will challenge yourself to break the cycle of “busyness” and avoid being…

Don’t Just Schedule a Meeting, Host One

You probably hear many complaints about “too many meetings.” If you’re responsible for meetings, make them meaningful – even enjoyable – by being a good host. This means following some logical steps and making room for creativity. This course will inspire you to be more creative in hosting your meetings while also reminding you of…

Be Interested

When you are interested in and curious about other people, you are in discovery mode. You’re not making assumptions or letting any biases take over. Other people sense your openness and are more comfortable revealing themselves to you and connecting from a place of authenticity. After completing this course, you will be better able to…

Be Kind To Yourself

Self-compassion may sound a bit “soft” but it’s an effective way to leverage your strengths. Rather than being critical of yourself – especially when things don’t go exactly as planned – try being empathetic. You’d do that for a friend, so it’s time to do it for yourself. After completing this course you’ll reconsider the…

When a Crisis Happens at Work

When serious problems happen at work, it’s not unusual for people to try to find someone or something to blame. This often makes the problem worse. It is better to learn how to be courageous, ask questions, and adopt a more systemic perspective. This course presents ways to manage yourself in the face of a…

Great Managers Ask Powerful Questions

Most breakthrough innovations began with a question, such as “What if?” or a “I wonder?” We often neglect to use the power of questions to focus attention, stimulate ideas, and generate curiosity. These are all very desirable actions that can happen at the prompt of a good question. In this course you will reflect on…

Change the Task, Not the Person

Changing people isn’t easy. As a manager, you will get to know people and learn about their unique skills and talents. This allows you to create a “goodness of fit” between people and the tasks that need to be done. In this course you will learn how to reframe thinking about work assignments by changing…

You Can Learn to Lead

Being a leader is everyone’s opportunity. It can be learned if you are open to new ideas and ways of working with people. This may mean accepting occasional failure and letting go of “what worked before.” After completing this course you will be better able to adopt new ideas and practices associated with leadership. You…

Focus on the Problem, Not the Solution

Solving problems is the key to innovation and advancement, but far too often, we get in our own way by assuming the solution before we’ve really analyzed the problem. Getting stuck on the assumed solution will slow you down, creating more steps that have to be taken to achieve the desired result. This quick and…

Show Respect

Respect is a behavior that conveys recognition, appreciation, and even admiration. When leaders show respect, they recognize people are different from one another, and appreciate these differences and contributions. After completing this course, you will be better able to build an inclusion workplace that respects and values all contributors.  Adopt a mindset that all people…

Present a Professional Appearance

While dress codes have shifted dramatically over the years, there’s still an expectation that leaders have a pleasant appearance. This doesn’t mean good looks or expensive clothing. It means looking alert, neat, and representative of your company’s brand. After completing this course, you will be able to make a more confident and powerful personal presence…

Show Humility

Everyone makes mistakes, and no one is perfect. Leaders who are “big” enough to stand by this fact are much more favorably received than those who try to appear better than others. It is uncivil to place yourself on a pedestal or make others feel less-than. After completing this course, you will be able to…

Recognize Loneliness at Work

Feeling lonely, disengaged, or “different” prevents people from contributing their best efforts. It is a human need to feel part of something, and leaders must recognize the signs of loneliness at work. And more than just recognize, to understand the source of it and take steps, even small ones, to instill a sense of belonging…

Making Introductions

While many people will automatically introduce themselves to one another, leaders still have an opportunity to make introductions meaningful. This means adding some information that’s appealing about each person, such as the person’s unique role or a professional distinction. When you do this, you convey that you’ve taken time to think about the people involved.…

Say Thank You

The power of the words Thank You cannot be overestimated. Thank your colleagues, employees, and customers for their efforts, their time, their input. When you make your thank you specific it means even more. “Thank you for setting up the room so nicely.” Means much more than “Thank you for all you do.” After completing…

Keep Promises

Broken promises lead to a lack of trust. It’s better to keep your promises small and meet them rather than make promises you can’t keep. A leader’s promises are taken to heart, and when broken, are equally as heartfelt. And when a promise cannot be fulfilled, the civil leader is honest about it. After completing…

Speak Up to Bullies

There are civil ways to speak up to those who mistreat others or show disrespect. Leaders are in a position to “name” a behavior that is inappropriate or wrong, and to model courage and confidence in the face of it. After completing this course, you will be better equipped to deal with workplace bullying in…

Dealing with Tears and Emotions

A recent survey found that 51% of adults said crying at work is unacceptable, but almost 60% said they had done so. There’s a disconnect here. The civil leader understands that tears and emotions are displays of personal distress, and it falls to the leader to respond appropriately. After completing this course, you will be…

How to Ask More Powerful Questions

Working towards a goal usually involves addressing a series of questions. To simplify the process, we tend to take one idea at a time and treat it as a “will or won’t” situation. This course teaches a broader perspective. Asking the right questions as you work towards your goal can create new possibilities and opportunities…
