Synopsis:

The famous futurist Joel Barker says, "A Leader is someone you would follow to a place you would not go by yourself." Being a leader doesn't necessarily mean that you have been given the title of manager or supervisor. Leaders are people who look to the future and inspire people to follow them. They can come from any part of an organization as long as they innovate, embrace change and look to the future. Yet, people and organizations tend to group the titles manager and leader as if they were one and the same. There are several important differences between a leader and a manager. Manager and supervisors need to recognize the difference between the titles and embrace both roles.  Leadership training on this topic is crucial.

Synopsis: The ADA can be complicated, but we've simplified the major points of the law for you.  The ADA was passed as the civil rights bill for people with disabilities.  Negative misperceptions about disabled workers made it very difficult for them to find meaningful work.  As a result, the country lost the benefit of all the skills and knowledge disabled employees possess.  With the ADA, lawmakers sought to right that wrong.  The ADA makes it illegal to discriminate against people with disabilities in hiring practices and on the job and allows them to bring their talents into the workplace.  This improves the economy as a whole and gives everyone with a disability the chance they deserve.
