Find trusted advice to your management questions – fast!
I designed the Learning Resource Center (LRC) for busy leaders who probably don’t have easy access to expensive consulting advice. In each of the 100+ short video segments, I share ideas, information, and inspiration for how to navigate through tricky management decisions.
Over the years and many conversations with managers and leaders, I noticed a pattern in the questions I was receiving. It made me realize that many other people were likely having the same questions, too.
That’s how the LRC was born. Lack of time often prevents lengthy consulting engagements, and resources can cancel out access to quick coaching advice. So where do leaders go when they need honest answers to real questions, like: “Should I really check references?” or “How do I know when it’s time to terminate someone?”
Now they can come to the LRC! It provides ongoing professional development for a reasonable one-time fee that costs less than most in-person classes and much less than a coaching or consulting engagement
My other aim in creating this resource is to build a community where we can learn together. That’s why I’ve incorporated monthly, online Round Robin Q&A sessions that gather and engage smart people who are willing to share and support each other.
These invitation-only forums dig into challenging workplace dilemmas being faced by LRC members. This kind of consulting time would regularly be valued at hundreds of dollars an hour, but for LRC members, it’s simply an added bonus. Plus, each session is recorded so you can still benefit even if you can’t attend in real time.

Subscribing is as easy; just click the button, you will receive your log-in credentials. Then browse and search for the guidance you need – when you need it!

“As a small business owner, I don’t always have easy access to a Human Resources consultant. The videos in the Learning Resource Center make it convenient and cost-effective for me to get practical solutions to the management issues I face. I can search the video collection at any time, allowing me to get the sound advice in the moment I need it!”
“There is something quite unique about Robin Eichert’s monthly Round Robin. Professional, yes. Well organized, always. Yet there is an air of warmth and informality that flows throughout the entire hour. I have always felt both inspired by listening to these bright participants and fully at ease to contribute respectfully. The forums cover much more that the critical importance of a well thought-out hiring process. They add perspective, depth and dialogue that help make each month’s subject rewarding.”

Dog-Inspired Leadership Lessons
Sometimes our teachers come from unexpected places. My 20-lb rescue dog, Grace, is one such teacher for me.
In 2005, I adopted Grace, a shy, timid dog who soon displayed behaviors that concerned me, like nipping and growling at visitors in my home. When I reached out to the experts for help, it became clear very quickly that Grace wasn’t the problem—it was in fact me that needed to change.
That was the ‘a-ha’ moment of the first leadership lesson she taught me. Far too often managers expect the employee to be the one to make all the changes, which was exactly the mistake I was making. I wanted others to “fix my dog” but Grace was trying to tell me that she couldn’t survive in the environment I was creating for her.
Workplace dynamics are no different. It’s more than just “fixing the employee.” Managers and employees both need to participate in any successful problem resolution.
Grace has been a keen teacher for me, providing amazing opportunities for me to see myself more clearly. In my quest to support Grace, she teaches me important leadership lessons almost every day. And I get to share those lessons to help leaders like you “unleash” yourselves and your full potential.
So Grace and I have become a team to share these stories with you. You’ll see her in some of the videos and lessons in the LRC, helping you on your journey of what I like to call, Graceful Leadership.
