On each lesson page, you will find a Progress Bar that will help you keep track of where you are at in the coaching program.
Each module is represented by an icon:
- Module 1: the LinkedIn logo
- Module 2: the community icon
- Module 3: the conversation icon
- Module 4: the handshake icon
Each small grey or colored dog represents a lesson. When you are working on Lesson 3 in the first module, you will see three blue dots on the Progress Bar.
First, you will need to review the lesson material. You can :
- Watch the lesson
- Read the lesson, or
- Download the lesson
To watch the lesson, click on the video.
To read the lesson, click on the "+" icon beneath the video to expand the lesson material.
The lesson is available to download as either slides or as a transcript of the video. Both are downloaded as PDFs. Simply click the corresponding button to open the PDF in a new window or download.
Each lesson comes with an Action Task (or multiple Action Tasks) which is found in a colored box beneath the lesson materials.
Completing each Action Task is essential to the success of this coaching program.
So far this is looking like any other online class, right? Wrong!
LinkedIn WORKS! includes individual, 30-minute Q&A coaching calls where you can ask me anything about using LinkedIn. I can walk you through any lesson material that you are struggling with and answer specific questions you have about LinkedIn and the mobile app.
We can also discuss your personal brand, LinkedIn network, and LinkedIn job search in more detail.
You are not limited to the number of coaching calls included in your package (Starter Program: 1 Q&A Coaching Call included; Module 3 Separately: 1 Q&A Coaching Call included; Module 4 Separately: 1 Q&A Coaching Call included; LinkedIn WORKS! Coaching Program: 4 Q&A Coaching Calls included). You can purchase additional Q&A purchase calls within any lesson.
Within each lesson, you can join a group discussion with others in the LinkedIn WORKS! Coaching Program. This is a safe space to ask questions, exchange ideas, and share victories (as little as they may seem).
As with any forum, you are expected to keep conversations clean and respectful. You are also expected to keep your comments relevant to the lesson.
Comments that contain job postings, links to other websites, or promotional content of any sort will be deleted by the moderator (That's me.). Any comments containing profanity, inappropriate, or irrelevant content will also be deleted at my discretion.
Why should you use the group discussion when you could just schedule a Q&A Coaching Call?
If you just have a quick question, save your Q&A Coaching Calls for more detailed or personal discussions. Other LinkedIn users that are enrolled in this coaching program may have the answer!
You will be asked to complete a Quick Quiz or an Assignment related to the lesson material before you can move on to the next lesson.
Quick Quizzes will assess whether or not you grasped the primary concepts covered in the material.
The Assignments may require more thought and effort on your part. Assignments will be saved and potentially referenced during Q&A Coaching Calls. You can also have your Assignments sent to your email address.
