Continuing Ed

Springtime has almost ended! Just in time for this edition of "Continuing-ed" Newsletter!

Our goal for this edition is to send you off into summer with some for thought. We hope this edition gives you some things to reflect and ponder upon, and even encourage you to continue your growth and learning during this amazing growing season. (Atlanta is having one of its best season's so far!) Yes, learning is very much like mother nature.

Speaking of continued growth, we offered our first Virtual Training program that was a smashing success. In fact, it sold out! For those of you who couldn't join us during the office hours that it was scheduled, we are now offering another opportunity for the evening crew. Here's the info:

We're in the process of switching our virtual training platform that should be in place next week. The transition of moving from live classroom training to virtual online training was a mental frame buster for me personally. Initially hesitant, once I started using the new technology, I've become a real fan. Although not all training can be successfully delivered in this new medium, participants are having positive experiences and reporting better outcomes sooner. I think getting smaller doses of the content with a little time in-between sessions helps the learners to keep moving forward with putting the knowledge into action faster.

So if you haven't taken a virtual training program, I encourage you to do so. And with the low price for your attendance, it's risk free. Besides, you know the quality of the work we do. We always guarantee your satisfaction!

So I hope to "see" you soon and online. Please send us a message with topics that you'd like to see covered.

To your success,


Best Regards,
President & CEO

Can Intelligence Really Be Increased?

Can your intelligence really be increased? That's a radical question that has been hotly debated for well over a century.  As with most "radical" questions the debate is usually centered around the lines of demarcation or differing disciplines. Historically intelligence has been measured as a factor of abstract numerical capabilities as tested by the dreaded IQ test. The supporters of IQ testing held upper hand in the debate until Dr Howard Gardner, educational psychologist at Harvard, announced his theory of "multiple intelligences," outlining eight distinct forms of "being smart." In which way are you smart?
