Welcome to Pretty Good Consulting !
I'm delighted to announce that I am delivering my "Influence, Change, & Politics in the Organization" graduate course for the University of Illinois, School of Labor and Employment Relations. This course is a continuation of the School's effort to expand their audience by offering high-quality coursework in an online environment. We are online now for the Spring semester. One of the topics we always discuss is the student's position in their organization... how much power they have, how much influence they have... and how to increase those levels. The truth is that you can never have enough. Business cycles are inevitable and I find acquaintances and colleagues being blind-sided by layoffs. So it is probably a good time for me to remind you again to keep cultivating your network. The time to work on your network is when you are employed. When you are unemployed, it is too late. Also, I am very excited to announce that I will be repeating a 2-day course for Marcus Evans titled, "Strategic Workforce Planning Master Class: Human Resource Strategies for Success." It will be held May 11th & 12th in Chicago. Please let your associates know about this opportunity if it would benefit them. But hey... you probably came here to talk business. I’d be delighted to talk with you about any Performance Improvement, Human Capital Development or Strategy Development needs that you might have. Oh, and if "Pretty Good" doesn't sound "good enough" for you, please don't forget that we offer a performance guarantee on all our contracts. Give me a call or send an email. Sincerely, Jim
