VIDEO: Building a Winning Team with Duke Football Coach David Cutcliffe (Part 1)
When talking about managing and supervising staff, we often use the metaphor of teams because so many of the dynamics translate well: working together toward common goals, the importance of each member as part of the group, continual self-improvement to ensure the best performance. We sat down with Duke Football Coach David Cutcliffe to talk about how he goes about building a winning team in this first of a two-part series.

Celebrating Labor Day Holiday on Sept. 2
While many will fire up grills or hit the swimming pool to celebrate Labor Day and the end of summer, you should take the opportunity to focus on the reason for the holiday and recognize your staff and their many contributions throughout the year. Make a Labor Day appreciation list for your staff, stick a “thank you” post-it note on their workstation, or share your gratitude during a staff meeting. is Now LinkedIn Learning
Last week, Duke's online learning system transitioned to the LinkedIn Learning platform. Duke users will continue to have the same access to their learning history, account information, and certifications. The platform includes over 13,000 courses and tutorials on business, technology and creative topics. LinkedIn plans to send a message directly to users after the transition is complete.
