In March, we took to the stars and had a blast hosting our 2nd annual Boost conference! Our obsession with Boost comes from our love of helping organizations develop leaders at every level who lead with compassion, expertise, creativity, and empathy. Great leaders have a profound impact on any organization. They are the ones who inspire ingenuity, cultivate communities of support, and create company cultures of equity and inclusivity. This year’s awesome Boost keynote speakers, Michelle Gielan and Brandon Smith, gave incredible sessions packed with expertly crafted messages on creating and maintaining impactful leaders. We wish Boost never had to end!
For those who missed the conference- or those as obsessed with Boost as we are- you can stream select conference sessions by registering on the Boost page of our website. Add a little lift to your day and prolong your Boost experience by watching on-demand sessions wherever you are.
Also in March, we kicked off a series of monthly BizLMS administrator training webinars to help our clients get the most out of their BizLMS experience. These deep dive sessions are just one part of our initiative to build lasting partnerships with our clients and offer us an opportunity to help our clients build and implement successful training programs.
For more information about BizLMS check out the “Meet the New BizLMS” webinar with internal LMS aficionado Tawn Gutermuth!
Our commitment to helping clients get every last bit of use out of our platform is stronger than ever and just keeps getting better! Stay tuned for the exciting new announcement of our latest BizLMS enhancement, BizHub, in the coming months.
When we say “Product,” you say “Updates”!
If you’re looking for new, innovative ways to level up the leaders in your organization then buckle up because we have just the tool you’re looking for! New to the BizLibrary family comes a product that combines the best of self-paced and instructor-led training, BizAcademy. This cohort-based learning academy is designed to upskill leaders of every level. How does it work? We’re so glad you asked! BizAcademy is currently segmented into either four or 16-week certificate programs, with session topics ranging from remote and executive leadership to new manager fundamentals and leadership essentials. Each academy session is taught by a team of experts with impressive backgrounds including executive coaches, TEDx speakers, authors, business strategists, and CEOs.
We understand that, like a pebble tossed into a pond, each leader and manager have a ripple effect that can reach across teams into every corner of an organization. Helping your leader develop their skills is the first step in ensuring that ripple is a positive one. Discover information about each session, the experts, and more!
Lights! Camera! Content!
It’s no secret that the BizLibrary Collection Expert Insights Series is a company favorite. Over the past few months, we’ve added several incredible video courses to this series that had us reaching for the popcorn.
Who are BizLibrary’s new expert superstars? We’re glad you asked.
First up is ‘happiness expert’ and CEO of WOOPAAH, Stella Grizont with a course on “The Science of Happiness at Work”. Stella has devoted her academic and professional life to understanding how to cultivate and create happiness in every area of her life. With a master’s degree in Applied Positive Psychology, Stella uses science and statistics to shape her insights on how to find happiness at work.
Next on our list of incredible experts is former corporate recruiter and current industry insider, Sarah Johnston with a course on Behavioral Interviewing. Sarah was named HR Weekly’s Top 100 Most Influential People in HR and was labeled by Balance Career as the owner of the “best resume writing firm for experienced executives”.

For clients looking to provide their learners with the opportunity to level up their knowledge of financial planning, we have an incredible new course available! Expert Debra Ohstrom’s series on Financial Planning and Investing explains how to build a financial plan that fits your monetary objectives in the short and long term. By the end, learners will be able to navigate the financial world more easily, set money goals, and understand how to invest to grow their money over time.

The final expert we’d like to highlight from the expert insight’s family is none other than Barb Bruno! Look, everyone wishes there were more hours in the day. From juggling tasks, running from meeting to meeting, or sifting through a never-ending inbox of emails, it’s easy to feel bogged down at work. But what if you could make more time for the important things and leave behind the menial tasks? Too good to be true? Not according to Barb! Her new course on making the best use of your valuable time is sure to make a difference in your day-to-day responsibilities.
But wait, there’s more! Each month we eagerly await the launch of incredible new course titles in our library. Here are just a few we’d like to highlight for you.
At BizLibrary we are always looking for ways to help each of our clients meet their desired training needs and requirements. One such requirement came to our attention when Chicago became one of the first cities in the nation to require separate bystander training on the topic of sexual harassment. We jumped at the opportunity to support our Chicago-based clients and released a series of Chicago-Compliant Bystander Intervention Training. You can find a preview of this course on the “What’s New” page of our website.
Our updated Microsoft Training Series is the second course we’re excited to share with you. We understand it’s hard to keep up to date with all the new Microsoft features and updates. Whether you need a refresh, or a deep dive product training on Word, PowerPoint, Excel, or Outlook 365, this series has all the information you need to use these programs like a pro.
