Let Us Not Forget Those Who Perished on 9/11/01
Courage Is Stronger Than Fear!
After over twelve months, it is with great pride that we at ProductivElearn send you this new issue of Continuing-ed Newsletter. Many of you have been very supportive, not to mention patient while we iron out our kinks and make friends with rebuilding the technology. For that I’m grateful.It has certainly been a long road, but I am overjoyed with the vision of making this a practical, useful, and reliable online learning community. The experience has so often tempted me to write a book, but that would take me off track from making this vision a reality.
We commit ourselves to making ProductivElearn a source for working professionals who want to continue their career development, but without having to travel and spend huge chunks of time in a classroom. Included in that vision is to offer this learning community multiple channels for them to interact, not only with us at ProductiuvelElearn, but also with each other on topics that are relevant to getting the results in their careers that they long for.
The Continuing-ed Newsletter is only one piece of that puzzle. We have re-organized the format and will continue to challenge you to respond back through our discussion boards. We have organized the discussion boards according to 5 categories. These categories also conform to how we have organized the articles and tips on the Productive Tools portion of the site: Information Overload, The Socratic Corner (Critical Thinking and Innovation in the workplace), Hotline (workplace communication), Frontline (best practices in management and leadership), The Brain, Health, and Learning.
As a special tip: if you have not visited the site lately, you may want to update your record. We have included preferences for the newsletter that you who are behind a firewall might want to consider.

This is a great memory aerobic, or an exercise for your brain.
If you are a practicing manager who has held management responsibilities for a long period of time, there are certain management behaviors and principles that eventually start becoming intuitive. With success over time we often become jaded about our continued learning and growth. Many long term managers who have also been trained over the years often will ballyhoo against new ideas and management books. Personally I fall into that later category. However, as many of you have heard me speak about, that even though you’re disciplined to stay on top of the literature, and in spite of the universal nature of some of the laws of good management, occasionally, a groundbreaking principle is discovered and clearly explained
One of the biggest complaints employees at all levels of organizational life register is about meetings. Besides the sheer volume of time they consume, they are also often a waste of time. I am not going to address the root cause of this here because that would take too much time to cover. Rather my focus will be on how to better process what goes on and comes out of the end of the meeting.
