Business

Success Depends on Execution

The success of your business depends on how well you execute in two areas: behaviors and processes. In this video series, you will learn the principles of successful execution of behaviors and processes.

Organizational behavior changes start with the leaders: know yourself first, your people and your business second. After that, we provide evidence-based principles of organizational behavior that are more likely to lead to successful outcomes.

Businesses operate effectively when they follow processes instead of procedures. We provide the process principles for strategy, people, and operations that, when executed well, are more likely to produce the desired outcomes that lead to success.

How to Deal with Rejection

One of the biggest fears people have is the fear of rejection. Why? Because rejection hurts!

In this 10 video course, Brett explains why rejection hurts, why we fear rejection and the consequences of that fear, common reasons for getting rejected, and most importantly- how to deal with rejection. He uses an evidence-based approach, not relying on some fortune cookie advice or crackpot theories of self.

Insight yields understanding, and understanding helps us make sense of our world. Don’t suffer from the fear of rejection any longer- if you are an entrepreneur, business leader, salesperson, or simply a person who wants to live to their potential, this course is for you.

Decision Making Fundamentals

Many business leaders struggle with making decisions, and often find their team also struggles with decision-making. We make thousands of decisions every day, some insignificant and others life-changing.

What is the best way to make a decision?

We use evidence-based research to provide you the tools to make effective decisions, whether you are a front-line employee or occupy the corner office. In this series, you will learn how to classify the problem, define the problem, produce specifications for a successful answer, decide what is right (not just acceptable), build execution into the decision, test the validity of your choice against the real world, and what to do when you’ve made a bad decision- because everyone makes bad decisions.

Fundamentals of Sales

Do you want to increase your sales? Do your salespeople understand their role, or are they just order-takers?

In this series, you will learn the attributes of a great salesperson, the principles of influence, sales knowledge, business knowledge, the behaviors of effective salespeople, and sales tactics.

This course is based on evidence, not pet theories or gimmicks, and is designed to increase the effectiveness of your sales team. Your business cannot succeed without sales, and you can’t afford to waste time chasing the latest trends. This course delivers principles based on evidence culled from research and practical applications.

A Question of Character

In this video series, you will learn what ethics are, the basics of critical thinking, the causes of ethical failures, coping mechanisms used when we fail, how to prevent ethical failure, ethical systems, and character traits of a virtuous person.

Blending philosophy and evidence-based research, we provide a deeper understanding of why people make the ethical choices they do- and how to avoid the traps of poor decision-making when dealing with ethics.

How to Set & Achieve Goals

Do you have trouble setting and achieving goals? Does your organization consistently fail to meet goals?

If you answered yes to either question, this course is for you. In this series, you will learn how to evaluate goals, specify rewards and standards, break goals down, the importance of focusing on behaviors over outcomes, create measurable goals, establish short term goals that lead to long term success, avoid limiting your performance, and assess your goals.

Along the way, we bust some myths about goals- because we use evidence-based principles, not urban legends, to provide a deeper understanding of how to set and achieve your goals.

Wellness

Ophthalmic Scribe Certification Course

This course will prepare you for the Joint Commission on Allied Health Personnel in Ophthalmology (JCAHPO) OSC exam, an open-book and notes test. Certified ophthalmic scribes are important for handling electronic medical records (EMR) and electronic health records (EHR), which all doctors are required to use to meet healthcare standards. JCAHPO is a non-profit certifying body with various levels of certifications and memberships for ophthalmology.

We understand how difficult it can be to further your education; you have to travel somewhere, fit someone else’s schedule into yours, and spend money on a bare-bones course. That’s why we put out Ophthalmic Scribe Certification course online!

So what do you get with our course?

Videos based upon micro-learning education for simple and easy watching.

Supporting documents the give you more information.

Quizzes to test your knowledge on seven distinct sections.

Links to books and guides to help you get a head start on your ophthalmic career.

On top of all this, it’s online- so you can access the course from anywhere!

Why would you attend a webinar that you have to change your schedule to meet? Why would you spend the money to attend and travel to a live workshop? Why wouldn’t you want to be as prepared as you possibly could before taking a test? In price and product, our course stacks up better than any others you look at.

For $123.00 you’ll have access to the full Ophthalmic Scribe Certification course for two weeks! While your access will only last two weeks, the knowledge and understanding we provide you last a lifetime- so why don’t you sign-up?

Note: Each purchase of this course is intended for one individual. If it is discovered that multiple people are accessing the course through one user account, you will have your access revoked without a refund.

Advanced Building Diagnostics

In The Case of the Moldy Attic, our intrepid building science investigator is called in to determine why a home that was supposed to be an ENERGY STAR home has mold spreading throughout the attic spaces and HVAC systems. The building science investigator brings an impartial perspective to a situation loaded with finger pointing between the builder, the insulator, the HVAC contractor, and the home owner. What will they discover? Who is most likely at fault? Will he survive the mold infested attics?

Using The Case of the Moldy Attic, we examine the evidence to determine the cause of mold in the attic of a home that was intended to be a high performance home.

This course will be set for 6 CEUs. You will have two months to complete the course.

This course prepares Raters and Rating Field Inspectors to think critically when conducting advanced building diagnostics specifically related to psychrometrics and building failures.

By the end of this course, students will:

  • Understand the relationship between pressure, temperature, density, and volume
  • Understand the driving forces for water movement in vapor form
  • Interpret data collected related to psychrometrics and building assemblies
  • Identify unsafe conditions for performing depressurization/pressurization tests in a home
  • Identify conditions under which they may perform depressurization/pressurization tests in a home occupied by persons with environmental sensitivities.
