Linchpin Learning



Take two college professors who also have deep business and communications backgrounds, compress their graduate school coursework into short timeframes, focus on communicating for action, and you get a learning experience that's "effective, engaging, and enjoyable" as one executive who loves alliteration put it.

My CMU colleague Ed Barr and I started Linchpin Learning in 2006 as a way to bring the graduate-level coursework that we teach at Carnegie Mellon to a broader professional audience. Today Linchpin has courses and workshops that teach industry professionals the 50 essential communication skills, a growing number of course videos on The Linchpin Channel, "50-Second Fixes" to help address specific communication issues, and a research component to help improve communication practices in the workplace.
