“The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.”
––William James, American Philosopher

Welcome to November!

Now that the Halloween candy hangover has (hopefully) passed, let’s get excited about the interesting things ahead from the Leadership and Business Content Team.

From courses, Live Events, and Leadercamps to digital books and book club, there’s something for everyone.

Joining an office-based working environment can be a big transition, regardless of if you are going into an office daily or dialing in from your home office. To become a rockstar in your new job, it will be important for you to understand how to contribute, how to interact with your work colleagues, and how to keep yourself on track. Our onboarding ASPIRE journey—Rookie to Rockstar: Mastering Professional Effectiveness—can give you the foundational skills needed to be an effective co-worker and employee.

As part of our Business Skills Refresh Project, we continue to release more courses related to popular business skills. Keep an eye out for the following courses in the coming months:

  • Critical Thinking: Investigating Arguments
  • Critical Thinking: Drawing Sound Conclusions
  • Problem Solving: Choosing the Right Solution
  • Building Rapport through Strong Collaboration
  • Finding Your Organization's Potential for High Performance

Meditation as a Path to Well-Being by Florian Brody on November 17th at 12PM EST

  • Learn the roots and neuroscience behind meditation

  • Gain awareness of breathing techniques for meditation
  • Understand how to integrate meditation into their daily routine
  • Participate in a guided meditation

Off the Shelf

National Stress Awareness

This month, we recognize National Stress Awareness. Stress can sometimes motivate us to do our jobs better. Anyone who excels by that surge of nervous adrenaline when under pressure to meet a looming deadline knows this well. But stress can also be debilitating, causing serious mental and physical illnesses. All month long, Skillsoft’s virtual book club, OFF THE SHELF is featuring a bookshelf of resources designed to help you manage the stress in your life, learn wellness techniques, and give you a sense of peace and control.


Veterans Day

Additionally, on November 11th we celebrate Veterans Day to honor our US Armed Forces’ selfless sacrifices and countless contributions. To commemorate the occasion, OFF THE SHELF is featuring a bookshelf of resources that pay tribute to the accomplishments, talent, and greatness of authors who are US military veterans.
