Community Harvest Seminars®
We offer a variety of seminars, classes and workshops which provide the leaders of work communities and their co-workers with the opportunity to take time off from their busy schedules to become students for a short period of time. We will continue to offer new courses as they are needed and developed. These courses are available to our clients along with our Consulting Services.
The Seminar Leader: Paul L. Schechter, has 20+ years of consulting and teaching experience. He has been teaching classes throughout his professional career. Before he launched Community Harvest® he taught courses for Ernst & Whinney (Young), the California Society of Certified Public Accountants as well as some private classes.
Dispute Prevention in The Workplace-Businesses waste billions of dollars each year due to the wasted energy spent on disagreements which spiraled out of control and turned into business disputes and then legal disputes. This class was previously taught before the California Society of CPA's. If you are a member and would like to obtain a copy of our syllabus, please let us know.
Mediation Skills For Workplace Leaders-Did you know that mediation is a process? Did you know that mediation is not the same as arbitration? Do you want to learn mediation skills so that you are able to mediate disputes within your work community? Then sign up for our class. You will find that these skills not only help you to be a better leader at work, but that you will be a better leader at home as well. This class has previously been taught as a private class to Certified Public Accountants who wanted to also be mediators.
Financial Governance: The Good, The Bad & The Fuzzy(sm)-Financial Governance of work communities goes way beyond the boardroom. It extends into every aspect of the workplace.
