When you look around the web for resources on business development, you’ll come up with nearly nothing. Business development, both in the context of startups and large organizations is exploding, yet it’s something that is rarely covered in a holistic manner. The resources to learn and grow in the function simply don’t exist.

This course was created to change that.

Business development has become a catch-all for terms like sales, operations, or marketing, but it’s so much more than that.

There’s a lot to learn to be truly great in a career in business development and commonly fetch a six-figure salary. This course was created to help you develop those skills.

Not only will you learn the structural basics of business development, you’ll also gain tactical tools, tips, and worksheets to implement in the work you’re doing right now.

Is this course for you? This course was created for those that...

Want to start a career in business development.

After taking this course, you’ll be armed with the skills and knowledge to do the same.

Are new to the function of business development. Did you find yourself in a business development role without any background or previous experience? I was there too. In this course, I’ve taken all I’ve learned over the past 7 years in business development roles to speed up that growth period. You’ll go from amateur to expert.

Have been in business development for years but want to grow. This is where I am as well. Creating this course has helped me immensely. I’ve picked the brain of other top business development professionals and reflected on my many failures and occasional successes to create a truly compelling course. It’s time to level up.

Self-Advocacy: Be Your Own Champion

Cultivate your assertive communication skills to effectively advocate for yourself and your needs in work and life.

Created by Shelley Osborne - Learning & Development Expert, Ed Tech Evangelist


Students: 2821, Price: Free

Have you ever said yes to something you really wanted to say no to? Have you ever kept quiet when you should have spoken up? Do you want to discover ways to stand up for yourself, confidently assert opinions, and get more of what you want?

I'd bet that you said "YES!" to one or all of those questions! All of the situations mentioned above require self-advocacy, the ability to advocate successfully for your own wants and needs. Self-advocacy is an essential skill in work and life. You are the one person best suited to look out for your own interests. The more you can speak up for yourself, using your voice to communicate confidently and assertively with others, the better conditions you will create to achieve your goals.

So we all need to self-advocate. But how do we get there? In this course, you'll:

  • Define self-advocacy and its value in the workplace

  • Create a self-advocacy goal to focus on what you want to achieve

  • Determine and reflect on your personal communication style

  • Differentiate between passive, aggressive, and assertive communication

  • Discover The GROW Model, a framework to help you set and achieve goals

  • Recognize self-advocacy bad habits that may be holding you back

  • Identify strategies to communicate more assertively

  • Establish when and how to say no

  • Identify how to find a sponsor

I built this course with plenty of activities so you can put what you're learning into practice. You'll spend some time reflecting on who you are, figuring out what you want, and creating a plan to make it happen. By the end of this course, you'll have a toolkit of assertive strategies to effectively advocate for yourself.

In my career, I've seen firsthand how important self-advocacy can be. You can't simply wait for things to happen - you need to make them happen by expressing yourself and standing up for what you want. Depending on where you're starting on your self-advocacy journey, this may seem daunting. And that's ok! But as your instructor, I'm here to tell you IT IS possible. You CAN be your own champion.
