The future success of an organization hinges on two primary factors. Recognizing the organizational culture, particularly as it relates to the hiring process, is critical to creating a succession plan, and a solid succession plan is dependent on the organization’s current attention to attracting and retaining talented employees. It is the job of every member of the organization to contribute to this effort, but managers who supervise staff have an especially important role in the support and development of the next generation of leaders. We’ll address talent management issues such as providing quality performance reviews and offer transition tools to implement a smooth succession process. Are you ready for your future?

The Perfect Storm For the first time ever, there are four generations (soon to be five!) in the workforce. This has never happened before and is creating all kinds of new issues. Each generation, Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y bring a different perspective to the workplace. Unless bridged, these differences can be frustrating and will impact an organization’s bottom line. What are each generation’s core values? What do they expect of their leaders and how do they define success? In this engaging program, John Graci answers these questions and much more. Filled with concrete examples and entertaining front line stories, this presentation will show all attendees we are all “different” and how to make the most out of cross-generational differences. Students at the Calmar, Cresco, Oelwein, Manchester and Waukon locations will be participating via web-based video conference transmitted from the host location in Dubuque. 51365 Tu 1-3p Aug 2 $59 Manchester Ctr 101 Graci 51604 Tu 1-3p Aug 2 $59 Dubuque/Town Clock Ctr 106B Graci

What Do You Mean, ‘It’s Not All About Me’?

Webinar: It’s Who You Know Relationships are the keys to success in life, personally and professionally. For new managers especially, it is important to understand that successful results will not happen working alone. Nothing exceptional happens without a team of supporters. This class will address the fundamentals of developing and maintaining valuable professional relationships that are built on authentic connections. We will share strategies for connecting with others in virtual networks and through community and business functions, and then help you create individualized plans that make networking and relationship-building the go-to tools in your leadership toolkit.

In a culture that values independence, personal strength and competition, we are encouraged to think about our own goals, how to achieve them and, sometimes, how to win at all costs. Often, this comes at the price of neglecting other valuable attributes like cooperation, collaboration and putting the needs of others before our own. While collaboration with others might ultimately benefit us, the emphasis in this class will be on recognizing how working with and for others can ultimately benefit an entire community, not just the parties who collaborate. You’ll take inventory of your own skills, talents and favorable attributes and recognize the benefits and advantages of sharing these with others. Finally, this class will provide you with a means for implementing change now, as well as a framework for re-assessing future goals, talents and resources through the lens of collaboration. 51292 Th 8-10a Nov 3 $39 Dubuque/Town Clock Ctr 106C Zanger

COMMUNICATIONS

PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION

Knowing Your Audience When Communicating

Become a Notary Public AT HOME STUDY®

“Know your audience” is the primary advice given to presenters or trainers, and the same principle applies to effective communication in today’s workplace. How does one tweak their message for the different audiences who will be listening? In addition to awareness and accommodation of the different learning styles and personalities that always exist in groups, it is also important for any leader to understand the generational lens through which team members will view their message. In this class we will be discussing how adults learn, generational and personality differences, and good practices for effective communication in a team.

Becoming a Notary Public is a great way to be of service to others while developing a part-time income stream outside of your regular job. In this home study format, you receive a reader-friendly National Notary Association study manual that explains the roles and responsibilities of a notary, information to help appropriately price notary services, and your state’s notary requirements. It also includes a workbook with your state’s notary public application and test information. Upon successful completion of the class and test, a certificate of completion is issued by AT HOME STUDY®.

Create Free Presentations with Prezi® How many times have you suffered through a slideshow presentation during which the presenter read text on the slides to the audience? Painful, right? Break free from the linear slideshow format! Prezi.com is a free web-based presentation design tool that allows placement of text , graphics and other elements on a blank ‘canvas’. The presenter then runs the show so that it appears like a camera lens zooming, panning and rotating around the canvas to highlight detail or provide a big picture view of the subject. Prezi can be downloaded, presented remotely live, embedded in a website, or shared via the URL. There is no software to download or install. You will also learn the best practices for creating presentations using any software. This class is well-suited for business people, teachers, students, or anyone else who creates presentations. 51445 Tu 5-8p Oct 18 $55 Manchester Ctr Maurer

Are You an Empath?

Babysitter’s Training Course

An empath is someone who is exceptionally sensitive to the emotions of others. Do you know how others are feeling even if you are not talking with them? Do people find it easy to confide in you?

Learn about the different kinds of empaths, figure out your own abilities and gifts, learn to control these sensitivities, and determine what you are meant to do with them. You will be clearer about how you can use your empathetic abilities in service to others.

This class prepares young adults (ages 10-15) with the practical skills and confidence needed to care for infants and school-age children. You will be first on every parent’s sitter list after you have learned the responsibilities that go along with babysitting, including safety and first aid.

Off the Grid Solar I Interest in commercial, residential and personal applications of solar photovoltaic power is accelerating as ‘going off the grid’ becomes more common. Not only can this technology light a home or barn, it can be used to charge a tablet in a remote location, power an automatic livestock waterer pump in a distant pasture, or power up an electric lawn mower. This 6-hour class provides an introduction to basic photovoltaic and electrical principles, fundamentals of solar siting, and off-grid photovoltaic system sizing. Participants will learn basic safety practices and become familiar with photovoltaic modules, batteries, charge controllers and stand-alone inverters. Students will learn to connect modules in series and parallel to reach the appropriate voltage and amperage necessary to connect to off-grid solar equipment. Successful completion of this class prepares participants for hands-on application of these skills in the Off the Grid II: Building a Solar Photovoltaic Charging Station class.
