    • Employee Accountability

      $110.00
      An article in the March 11, 2010 edition of TIME magazine purported to explain “why we have entered the post-trust era.” Indeed, we seem to be in a time where people act inappropriately and then refuse to take responsibility for their actions. Who can we blame for the world economic crisis, issues with religion, the outcomes of our governments, or the state of the environment? More to the point, why do we spend so much time and energy looking to pin the blame on someone (usually anyone but ourselves)? With this in mind, it’s no wonder that organizations who promote accountability are more successful and more productive. In this course, you will learn about what accountability is, how to promote it in your organization, and how to become more accountable to yourself and others.   Member price:  $88.00

    • The Practical Trainer

      $240.00
      Part of knowing where you are going is defining what you are doing. Training can mean different things to different people: a trainee has needs, your supervisor has expectations, and as trainers, you have objectives. The assumption that anyone who can do a job can teach another person how to do it has led to countless errors in the instruction process. Many of us have been either a victim of or a witness to this misguided belief. Trainees are most engaged by a trainer who: Has some experience to share Has something of value to offer Can provide some real examples and give them some tips Lets participants talk and share their experiences with others Throughout this course, we take a closer look at how to approach teaching individuals with an affinity for any learning style. Whether a seasoned trainer or looking to get started this course is an excellent resource to complement your existing skillset or develop your own style for more effective training.
