Questioning is a powerful alternative to making statements.

A good question is often much better than a defensive remark, or a counter-accusation, for all sorts of situations. Using an open question (What. How. especially) is a simple and effective technique for resisting forceful or bullying pressure. Using questions, rather than statements and guesses, is also very effective for building trust, diffusing conflict, understanding situations, managing other people, teaching, training, and parenting. Traditionally, questioning is regarded as mainly a selling skill, but it’s powerful and productive in virtually every circumstance involving human cooperation.

Anyone can be a leader – inspiring others, helping others, making a positive difference to someone or something. Leadership is most effective and easiest when it is adaptable. Explore different theories of leadership – they each offer adaptable methods, styles, etc.

What’s the most powerful rule of negotiating.

Have an alternative.

Be able to walk away.

This simple principle is often ignored, particularly because as buyers or sellers we all tend to focus and fixate on a single option, which quickly creates a dependence on it, which produces pressure (including time/deadline) to agree a deal, which weakens our position, and strengthens the position of the other side.

Nudge theory helps us understand why we fixate on a single option, and why the apparent desirability of a single option increases.

The Psychological Contract are additionally very useful models and tools in planning and assisting others through change.

Pareto’s 80-20 Theory is very useful for problem-solving, decision-making, downsizing, optimization, streamlining, and all sorts of evaluation and change, in business, organizations, and personal life too.

  • Understanding yourself, and how your priorities change through life.
  • Understanding this in others.
  • Teaching and exploring this with others.
  • Understanding how to motivate and relate to people of different ages.

Acronyms are brilliant and entertaining devices which offer all sorts of opportunities to add interest and amusement – and crucially impact and memorability – to training. writing and presentations .

And the acronym is just one of scores of fascinating language curiosities and effects. which help bring spoken and written words to life.

Businessballs offers other useful glossaries too:

For example see the business dictionary and the glossary of common Latin terms – again these are super resources and inspiration for training and communicating in most situations.

Get Office 365 for free

Show all Hide all

What is Office 365 Education?

Office 365 Education is a collection of services that allows you to collaborate and share your schoolwork. It’s available for free to teachers who are currently working at an academic institution and to students who are currently attending an academic institution. The service includes Office Online (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote), 1TB of OneDrive storage, Yammer, and SharePoint sites. Some schools allow teachers and students to install the full Office applications on up to 5 PCs or Macs for free. If your school provides this additional benefit, you’ll see the Install Office button on your Office 365 home page after you complete sign-up.

What are the eligibility requirements?

You must be a full-time or part-time faculty or staff member at an academic institution and:

  • Have a school-specific email address provided by the school (for example, contoso.edu) that can receive external email.
  • Be of legal age to sign up for an online offer individually (13 years old).
  • Have Internet access.

How do I get Office 365 Education?

To see what’s included in Office 365 Education, visit the Office 365 Education plan page. You can enroll your school from there.

How long can I use this plan?

You can use the plan as long as you are working at a qualified school. Your eligibility may be re-verified at any time. When your Office 365 Education plan expires:

  • The Office applications enter a reduced-functionality mode, which means that you can view documents, but you cannot edit or create new documents.
  • Online services associated with the school email address—for example, Office Online and OneDrive—will no longer work.

How long does it take to be approved as a qualified academic institution?

In many cases, the response time is instantaneous through an automated verification process. In other cases where an institution needs to be verified, it shouldn’t take more than three to seven days. If you are nearing the end of your 30-day trial and have not received approval of eligibility, please contact customer support .

I’ve already signed up my school for Office 365 Education. How can I get the word out to students and teachers?

We’ve created a promotion kit to help you communicate to students and educators how they can take advantage of the state-of-the-art productivity and collaboration tools you are providing for them through Office 365. Learn more

What can I do if I’m not eligible?

Office provides a range of options for students, so it’s easy to find one to fit your budget. Learn about ways you can get Office .

Who manages the OneDrive account provided with this offer?

This account is associated with the school and should be used for school-appropriate content. Permissions and access can be changed by the school’s IT administrator at any time.

Can I share this plan with others?

Office 365 Education is licensed for use only by the eligible teacher.

What are the minimum system requirements for Office 365 Education?

To install Office 365 Education, your PC or Mac must meet the minimum system requirements. View the system requirements.

How do I get Microsoft Classroom (formerly known as “Class Dashboard“) as part of Office 365 Education?

Microsoft Classroom (“Class Dashboard” was the name for the private preview) is a new experience that we will make available on the Office 365 Education* home screen (upon sign-in) for teachers and students. We will be expanding the limited public preview of Microsoft Classroom in the US (English-only) starting on April 12th. IT Administrators (or admins of Office 365 tenants) can sign up for the preview at cd.microsoft.com and they will be added over the course of the summer. We will roll this out in the US in July, with international availability and other languages besides English in subsequent months of 2016. Here is what Microsoft Classroom is:

Office 365 Education includes Microsoft Classroom. a homepage where teachers can manage all of their classes and assignments online. Teachers can manage multiple class sections (like Biology A and Biology B), create or manage assignments and grading, collaborate with other teachers in Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), and provide feedback to students with built-in Class Notebooks. In Classroom. students can collaborate with their teachers, their classmates, and access all the materials to be successful in the class even when they are absent. With Sway integrated, teachers can create interactive web-based lessons, assignments, project recaps, newsletters, and more—right from a phone, tablet, or browser— and even embed a quiz with the new Office Forms. Students can access all their assignments on their mobile devices (Classroom app). Office 365 is now optimized for teachers and students along with an integrated platform with the aim of saving teachers time and improving student outcomes.

In order to use Microsoft Classroom, all teachers and students must have the following:

  1. Be in the same Office 365 Education tenant
  2. Have SharePoint Online licenses
  3. Have Exchange Online licenses, active Exchange mailboxes, and the ability to send and receive mail.

Customers interested in this new experience should register and see the updated information at the cd.microsoft.com to be notified when it becomes available for Customer Preview. They can also watch the case study video from Omaha Public Schools use in Private Preview here (see written case study here ).

In the meantime, any teacher can start OneNote Class Notebooks with their class today to experience a key piece of saving time, organizing, and collaborating with Office 365 Education: http://onenote.com/classnotebooks. One new opportunity for customers partners is functionality to have assignments, not just pages and sections (announced last month ), distributed in OneNote Class Notebooks also show up in Office 365 Education (Microsoft Classroom) and top Learning Management Systems (LMSs). Teachers can now get most things done in OneNote without jumping between applications!

You can begin the QDRO process when you are initiating your divorce or legal separation. Mr. Beutler can prepare your QDRO form before you file your divorce or separation documents with the court, after you have filed but before the divorce has become final, or after your divorce is completed. He will draft your QDRO to conform with the language in your divorce or legal separation documents.

Nursing School Accreditation

Advantages to Attending Accredited Nursing Schools

Nursing school accreditation creates a gateway for nursing students to participate in federally funded and state entitlement programs. Graduates from accredited nursing school programs also qualify to attend other accredited schools to pursue advanced studies, including RN-to-BSN and master’s programs. It can also make you more competitive in the job market; employers prefer to hire accredited practitioners because they are trained under nationally established standards for nursing education.

The Accreditation Bodies

Two national organizations accredit nursing education programs:

  • The Accreditation Commission For Education in Nursing (ACEN) accredits all types of nursing education programs including master s, baccalaureate, associate s and diploma
  • The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) accredits programs that offer only master s and baccalaureate level nursing degrees
  • The Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA) accredits nurse anesthesia programs at the certificate, master s and doctoral degree levels
  • The American College of Nurse-Midwives Division of Accreditation (ACNM) accredits midwifery education programs

Different Nursing School Accreditation for Different Programs

Most nursing school accreditation organizations use the same standards and criteria to accredit each nursing program type. However, nursing school accreditation is granted for specific periods of time that differ between individual schools and programs. Check with the nursing school or the accrediting body to determine the length of time for which the school is accredited.

How to Find out if your Nursing School is Accredited

NLNAC-accredited programs are identified on AllNursingSchools.com by a clearly marked logo next to the nursing school/program name .

What Approved by State Board of Nursing Means

Each state sets standards for and approves schools that can train nursing students to be eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) examination in that state. However, approval by a state board of nursing does not mean that the school is accredited by a national accrediting organization. In general, though, every accredited nursing school is also approved by its state board of nursing.

Attending a Nursing School That is Not Accredited

Some nursing schools are approved by their state board of nursing but are not accredited by a national nursing accreditation body. You should exercise caution in considering attending a non-accredited school.

While it does not mean that you will not receive a quality education or that you will be ineligible to sit for and pass the NCLEX examination, it generally does imply that you will not be qualified to attend an accredited nursing school in pursuit of additional education (for example, an RN-to-BSN or a master’s degree program). That, in turn, might limit your progression in your professional nursing career .

WELCOME TO THE WASHINGTON CROSSING FOUNDATION HOME PAGE

The Washington Crossing Foundation was chartered in 1964, as a nonprofit corporation for the purpose of promoting a greater appreciation of the significance, courage and patriotism of George Washington and his leadership throughout the American Revolution. The dedication and courage which inspired his historic crossing of the Delaware and subsequent victories at Trenton and Princeton, New Jersey, and eventually at Yorktown, Virginia, are as important today as they were in 1776.

During the years since the work of the Foundation began, we have remained steadfast in our purpose and have seen a resurgence of interest in acquiring accurate and inspiring information about historical figures. The principal beneficiaries of the Foundation�s programs are the nation�s schoolchildren. In our important scholarship program, the Foundation has awarded grants of from $500 to $5,000 to several hundred high school seniors from across the United States who are planning a career in government service and show particular interest in moral courage, character and duty to state and country. The Foundation has awarded more than one million dollars to help these students pursue their goals.

The Washington Crossing Foundation believes that its work is more important today than any time since its founding. Once again we are experiencing �times that try Men�s souls�, as Thomas Paine so eloquently said during our initial struggle for liberty. We must never lose sight of the sacrifice, the hardship, the suffering and the dedication which made this nation survive. We should be proud of our heritage and forever grateful to the courageous men and women who gave us the greatest gift possible – Freedom. The Foundation does not exist to change history, but instead to honor it. One of the founders of the Foundation, author/historian Ann Hawkes Hutton, has said that �history is yesterday�s fact, which understood today, will shape tomorrow�.

If you ask the question, �What does America mean to me?�, the members of the Foundation would reply: We teach how our nation began; we encourage and assist young people to take their places in our nation�s public service, and we look to the future. We introduce the knowledge of our American heritage to the students of our nation so that they will value its meaning and draw upon its strength.

In the famous painting of �Washington Crossing the Delaware� by Emanuel Leutze, owned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the fears and answering courage of Washington and his men are etched in the faces of those in the boats who are about to undertake the bold crossing of the Delaware on Christmas night 1776. The authorized copy of this painting, a magnificent 12� by 21� oil painting by renowned artist Robert Bruce Williams of Washington, D.C. is owned by the Washington Crossing Foundation. The Foundation put this inspiring painting on a national tour, first to the Indiana War Memorials Museum in Indianapolis, Indiana, where it was welcomed by county commissioners, military generals, visitors and students from Indiana schools. It was also seen by many thousands in California, where it was displayed with important historical artifacts at the California Naval Facility in Monterey. The painting was in place for a special patriotic Fourth of July concert for four thousand people to view. During its five year stay at the New Jersey State Capitol Complex, the painting was viewed by 900,000 visitors. It continues to tour the country to remind all who see it of the kind of patriotism that Washington exhibited in his �Farewell Address�. �The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism�. Such loyalty and love of country are needed now as much – perhaps more – than in the days of Washington.

That is just what we seek, and find, in the students who benefit from our scholarship program. Winners have come from all 50 states and from all walks of life. Foundation scholars have gone on to win prestigious Rhodes, Marshall and Truman scholarships. Many Washington Crossing Scholars have already established themselves in government service. One has been clerk to the Chief Justice of the United States, one a staff member of the International Court of Justice, the Hague, and another a member of the personal staff of the Speaker of the House of Representatives. From a National Park Service silviculturalist to Military officers, from a New England town manager to a foreign service officer, from a professor of international relations to a United Nations official, from a Texas high school teacher to a Florida public prosecutor and a former member of the White House support staff, across the nation, Washington Crossing Scholars are perpetuating the ideals of 1776 to secure the future.

The Washington Crossing Foundation is a volunteer non-profit (501(c) (3) organization.
