How To Make Online Learning Work For Your Company This Year

CEO of Livius and co-author of “Hacking the SAT: Tips and Tricks to Help You Prepare, Plan Ahead, and Increase Your Score.”

In the days immediately following the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic on U.S. shores, schools shut down as administrators and parents raced to gear up for digital classrooms. Unfortunately, many of those educators and concerned parents found the nationwide online learning experiment to be a struggle. 

That consensus seems to be growing now that schools across the country have begun the new academic year. Social media is full of posts from parents, teachers and students describing a fraught, frustrating school day that often ends in tears all around. The same is true for employees and leaders attempting to navigate remote working, training and professional development.

Yet there’s a learning opportunity hidden in the chaos, and your company can benefit from it. Given the continued battle against the

Pattern is the hair care line she’d always wanted but no one had created–until now.

As an entrepreneur, Tracee Ellis Ross would seem to have some clear advantages: She’s an award-winning actor, producer, and activist–and the daughter of Diana Ross. Yet her first steps into starting her own business brought her the same frustration and rage that so many founders–especially female founders–know all too well. A few years ago, Ross brought the idea for Pattern, a hair care line for curly, coily, and tight-textured hair, to her contact at her talent agency. “She made me cry,” recalls Ross. “She was like, ‘Why would anyone want hair products from you? You’re an actor.’ ” Like many entrepreneurs, Ross was motivated by her own experience: She knew, from years of trying to mold her hair to society’s idea of beauty–and damaging it

How does this title company help agents win more business?

As a relationship-driven business, it’s no surprise that top performing agents enjoy the deep trust of their clients. They earn it by delivering unparalleled service, by having a mastery of data, and by being actively responsive.

They carefully guide clients through the phases of listing a property or searching for homes. And they provide timely, informed advice on repairs, on structuring or responding to offers, and on thoughtful negotiations. It’s all about a creating good experience.

So why don’t agents do more to ensure that experience carries through the entire closing?

Real estate professionals are fluent in the vagaries of the closing process, but the average homeowner will only go through it once every seven to ten years. That means, after having a trusted advisor by their side at every moment, the title and closing process thrusts the consumer into an unfamiliar, unforeseen, and all-around unpleasant experience—all on their own.
