                                     OUR Mission

This class focuses on enhancing your communication skills so you may build cooperative working relationships. The picture to the left depicts an incomplete workplace.  Organizations where employees are fragmented, the mission is unclear, and support is hard to find.  These types of organizations do not stimulate creatively, cooperative relationships, or productivity.  Typically, absenteeism is high, satisfaction is low, and productivity is inadequate.  These types of organizations are puzzles where the pieces do not seem to fit together.

In this class, our goal is to utilize the wealth of experiences represented by EVERY member.  Our diverse work backgrounds are an asset.  Our diversity is our strength.  If everyone actively participates, our collective knowledge will help solve some of the largest problems we face at work.  We are all teachers.   Let's work this semester to teach and support each other in a positive manner.  We all need to listen with an open mind so we can acquire new skills to make sense out of our organizational lives.
