Communication and leadership go hand in hand.
That concept became clear for students in spring 2020 at Black Hills State University (BHSU) in Spearfish, South Dakota.
Students in BADM 344 — Managerial Communications followed the guidance provided in Emerge, our signature online platform for business communication skills. The course is led by Barbara Looney, PhD, an assistant professor of management in the BHSU School of Business.
Through Emerge, BHSU students explored the three Rubin ebooks for communication skills — Wait, How Do I Write This Email? (career development), Wait, How Do I Promote My Business? (entrepreneurship) and Wait, How Do I Lead My Team? (leadership and management).
Each ebook contains 100+ writing/speaking templates and is supported by video tutorials, readings and self-directed assignments.
“Emerge encourages my students to lead with empathy, draft emails and messages with clear, logical language and never be afraid to seek new opportunities,” said Dr. Looney. “Emerge is a fresh addition to business and managerial curricula.”
