2017-18 Online Courses and Webinars

Welcome Friends!

Many of you have been asking for another web learning series focusing on leadership and organizational learning. I’m happy to say we are ready to go with a new line-up of topics.

Continuing Education Credits for Nurses: I’m delighted to announce that our web learning events now come with continuing education credits. Credits from the State of California, Board of Registered Nursing are now a reality through a collaboration with my friend and colleague, Juli Maxworthy (DNP, MSN/MBA, RN, CNL, CPHQ, CPPS, CHSE, FSSH, and CEO of WithMax Inc.) and through her company, “WithMax, Inc.”

Professional Development Credits for Non-Nurse Leaders: If you are a leader in a field/industry other than nursing, please feel free to put me in touch with your professional development coordinator and I’ll be happy to work with that person so that you might earn credit.

October 13, 2017: In Honor of International Failure Day: Let’s dip our toes into Post-Traumatic GROWTH.

(This class is over, but contact Elle if you’d like a special presentation for your organization on the topic of “Failure”)

Who among us hasn’t had a major fail in life or in our leadership work? I still cringe for example, when I think about the time that every single one of my slides in what was supposed to be an uplifting keynote presentation, contained this typo: www.WisdoomOut.com. Oh sure, this fail might be minor compared to all the things that could go wrong, but still.

The question that is helpful to ask when things go wrong is, what is the upside to this fail? Very often — if not I daresay always — the upside of every fail is that you learn something important and meaningful.

In this webinar, I’ll introduce you to the amazing phenomenon known as post-traumatic growth. More important, I’ll give you five questions you can ask yourself and others, to precipitate — to actually draw down — the outcomes of growth from loss and adversity.
