Introducing Managing Remote Employees

Today’s workforce is turning to  technology to handle both internal and external communications. The idea of meeting face-to-face is becoming less and less common. In wake of the recent string of viruses world-wide, many companies are embracing the idea of employing remote workers to run their day to day operations. While the convenience and agility of working remotely sounds easy enough, it is also imperative that supervisors and managers alike are practicing the best strategies to effectively oversee their remote employees.

Emotional Intelligence (EQ) – Why it Matters!

Perhaps you’ve heard of something called emotional intelligence, or EQ. It’s mentioned a lot these days! In the workplace, it’s important to understand not only what emotional intelligence is, but also the effect it can have on your team. According to Psychology Today, emotional intelligence is the “ability to identify and manage one’s own emotions, as well as the emotions of others.”   

The key elements of emotional intelligence are:  game-pieces-on-a-game-board

  • Self-awareness: How well an individual identifies their emotions.
  • Self-management: How well an individual controls their emotions and adapts when thinking and solving problems.
  • Social awareness/relationship management: How well an individual can empathize and maintain healthy relationships.

 

Having a handle on your emotions and using that awareness to react differently in times of conflict is called agility. That’s why many agile leaders are integrating an EQ test in their workplace, by providing EQ assessments to better understand their teams. The idea is that managers and team members who have control of their emotions and an awareness of others are agile enough to have productive relationships with coworkers, and thus be an asset to the team.  

“It is very important to understand that emotional intelligence is not the opposite of intelligence, it is not the triumph of heart over head—it is the unique intersection of both.” 

David Caruso, Ph.D., Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence

We are thrilled to introduce an online emotional intelligence assessment for organizations. With the information this DiSC®-based assessment provides, you can make effective hiring decisions, create agile teams, and facilitate workplace harmony.

Thank You, First Responders

firefighter putting out a fire

Several months ago, California saw severe fires that spanned hundreds of thousands of acres and caused thousands of people to evacuate their homes. Locals didn’t know what to expect in the coming days, but they knew that firefighters would face the blazes until they were put out. Actor John Cena was so appreciative of the first responders that he donated $500,000 to firefighter organizations in their honor.

There are approximately 1.1 million firefighters in the United States. These professional and volunteer men and women bravely put themselves in harm’s way every time they respond to a call. That’s why we appreciate them, too. We also appreciate the 262,000+ paramedics in the U.S. who show up to treat people requiring urgent medical care.

First responders: We know you have busy, unpredictable schedules. (We also know that’s an understatement!) So, fitting in the medical courses you’re required to take can be difficult. After all, what are the chances you’re free on the days when classes are given?

Thankfully, we have a solution. You can meet your requirements by taking our Anatomy & Physiology and Medical Terminology courses online, whenever and wherever you like. These courses provide the flexibility you need with your ever-changing schedule, and they’re self-paced so you work at your own speed. Plus, we give you access to the material for a year, so you can squeeze in the work a little bit at a time—or you can knock it out on a free weekend!

How you take our courses is your call. But when you respond to the next 9-1-1 call, with these courses under your belt, you’ll be ready. Thank you for all that you do.

The First Step Toward Your Career as a Health Professional

A Healthy Start in Healthcare: The First Step Toward Your Career as a Health Professional

Why Studying Anatomy and Physiology May Be Right For You Discover Your Many Career Possibilities

Do you see yourself as someone who is there for others? Are you often raising your hand to help or volunteer your time?

Professionals who work in the healthcare industry often say they found their career path because they saw an opportunity to make a difference. By working in medicine and wellness, they found an outlet for their desire to improve the lives of others.

But even if healthcare professionals approached their jobs based on a similar desire, they didn’t necessarily end up in the same place.

In the healthcare industry, there are many career possibilities, from nurse to paramedic, nutritionist to therapist, researcher to orthodontist. There’s also a great need: healthcare professions are among the most in-demand jobs for 2019, according to a recent report from Career Cast.

A Foundation for a Healthcare Career
Healthcare professionals are often some of the most respected workers. They are valued for their compassion, technical skills, intensive training, and vast knowledge.

The study of anatomy and physiology can establish the foundation of an important career in the healthcare industry. In understanding the structure of the body and how body parts function, students of anatomy and physiology gain a deep understanding of the human body. Even if your goal is not to become a doctor, this is a key lesson that will help you care for others.

What Will Anatomy and Physiology Teach You?
Corexcel’s fully accredited, self-paced Online Anatomy and Physiology course allows you to experience the immersive and interactive lessons necessary so you truly understand the workings of the human body.

Master key concepts, like the nervous system and cell structure,  thanks to full-color art, animations, audio, and video. Additionally, multiple exercises, games, quizzes and tests help reinforce learning and test your growing knowledge of anatomy and physiology as you progress.

The course is perfect for non-medical professionals who want to learn anatomy and physiology to pursue a field in the healthcare or pharmaceutical industries. In other words, this could be your pathway to a new career.
