Course Descriptions

Crisis Management - Oct 11-13 1:30-4:30pm
How do organizations and companies effectively anticipate, plan for, test, respond to and recover from a crisis?  Crises come in many forms — from single events to prolonged exposure.  Fire, flood, heat, cold, tornado, loss of utilities, outbreak, equipment failure, accident and injury are examples.  Effective organizations understand these risks, their likelihood, and develop plans, strategies and tactics that can be refined and tested over time.  Gain a valuable overview along with the applicable methods and knowledge needed to effectively respond to crisis.  Preparation is key.

Resilient Leadership - Nov 29-Dec 1 8:30-11:30am
Resilient leaders know how to best support their organizations through high pressure and difficult circumstances.  They exhibit strength and optimism when addressing crisis, responding to setbacks, or confronting tragedy.  So what does it take to be a resilient leader?  Resilient leaders are able to calmly pivot direction, make solid decisions in unique circumstances, cope with their own stress levels and energize others while using high levels of emotional intelligence.  With the new strategies and skills gained, you will become better at self-leadership and leading others.

Hybrid Workforce Essentials - Dec 6-8 8:30-11:30am
Most organizations have evolved to accommodate a flexible workforce since the pandemic.  With this course, managers as well as employees, will learn new engagement and communications techniques that build trust, strengthen collaboration and enhance productivity.  This course will help anyone managing or working within a virtual or hybrid team environment learn how to maximize the benefits of technology.  They will also be better prepared to achieve organizational goals and benefit from improved well-being.
