The Human Touch 3

Is this what 'personal' computer means?
Need some people skills? The following courses are being offered this spring by Oakton Community College in Des Plaines, Ill.:

  • Conflict Resolution
  • Interpersonal Skills for Managers
  • Learning to Supervise
  • Motivate Your Employees
  • Overcome Communication Barriers
  • The twist is that these are classes offered online, which means you learn on your computer, over the Internet, at home, alone.

    Our favorite offering:
    Project Management & The Human Element.

    A call was placed to Oakton, asking how the school balances this apparent contradiction of learning human-interaction skills alone with a PC. After a moment away from the phone, the office worker said she didn't know and that--we're not making this up--it would be best to consult the Web site for help.
