Award Winning Online Courses

I am one of those weird people who wants to finish well, raise the bar by working to improve everyone around me. I have learned to understand the value of leadership, teamwork and personal development—not exclusively for myself but also for the benefit of others.

So when I talk about outstanding content, it’s just that, outstanding. It should be condensed to produce an efficient and effective use of time. For instance, I believe if there are two-pages of content, it should be distilled from 20-30 books and research reports, along with real-life experiences of its successful authors (entrepreneurs, academicians, and Fortune 100 executives).

Powerful content should be loaded with inspirational, practical truths and corroborative research that connect each participant’s head, heart, hands and speech. The result, people accomplish what they need to accomplish, only better and more quickly.

Every teaching should address three major qualitative competencies: 1) leadership/following skills, 2) collaborative team interactions, and 3) personal character skills. It should paint a picture to help the learner gain clarity, set priorities, and implement new ideas. For me training is about action, so there should be lists dozens of practical steps participants can implement.

In addition, each lesson should help develop specific foundational competencies that inspire better behavior, habits, attitudes, and motives. In other words, the things on the inside (the heart and mind) that form the way we think, act, and interact. These teachings empower people to see things they didn’t see before, which equips individuals to become more complete, and in every aspect of life.

Here are my recommendations for Top 40 learning, talent and organizational development subjects:
