Getting the Most Out of this Course


This course is designed for self-paced and community learning. You’ll get the most out of it if you reflect on the information, make comments and read what others have said.

You can interact with course instructors and other students by adding comments as you progress through the course.

Unlike most traditional eLearning Courses you can move around and try whatever topics you find most interesting.

There are a couple of options for navigating.  There is the course outline in the sidebar to the right and towards the bottom of the page there are links to the previous and next lessons.

This course is currently under Construction.  With the help of the community we aim to have completed the content in each section by the end of June 2018.

We will eventually add some quizzes and video content.

However we think the biggest learning will come from community contributions about reflections on difficult bosses and how to deal with tricky situations.
