Are you a Great Leader?

Dear Friend,

Can too many cooks in one kitchen create confusion? The world's finest restaurants usually have one head chef leading the way. What is leadership and why is it important? How does a leader encourage change without triggering fearful resistance? What are the key elements to leading an effective team? What is the role of charisma in leadership? How can a leader achieve work-life balance?

To address these questions and many more, United University Online offers a suite of courses. Based on D. Quinn Mills's book, Leadership: How to Lead, How to Live, a text used at Harvard Business School, the courses in this suite offer advice on leadership that can help you stand out as a leader among your peers. Video segments introduce Dr. Mills and other leaders who discuss such issues as how leaders become leaders, leadership ethics, and the differences between leaders, managers, and administrators.

Best Regards,

Jeffrey G. Nutt, J.D. 





The Micro Learning  
Trend is Sweet 

Eating one slice of cake at a time is usually a better idea than eating the whole thing at once. Similarly, whether we call it "bite-size learning", "microlearning," or "learning bursts," there is a dramatic shift in today's world of training and development. Corporations are moving away from day-long training events in an effort to maximize real learning while minimizing time spent devoted to training. 
Experts say that this approach aligns with research showing that we learn better when engaged in short, focused sessions. Corporations and other organizations find this technology-assisted microlearning appealing because it can, in part, replace costly off-site training and deliver just-in-time knowledge and skills when they are most needed. Recognizing this trend, United University Online provides multiple micro leaning options, one bite at a time.  See below for a sampling of our courses.
