Member Recommended Book: Keeping Cool on the Hot Seat

This is the 5th edition of this book. Since initially published in 2001, it has been used by numerous organizations of all kinds to help them know what to do and say in the opening moments of a crisis. Those who have received it from their companies after having gone through the workshop on the same topic have found it to be a ready reference. It is easy to grab when something bad happens that thrusts them into the public eye in a potentially negative way. For those who have not been through the workshop, it can provide them with the basic information they need to make a positive initial impression with the news media and the public and then follow through to a conclusion that allows them to save their corporate reputation.

For more than 60 years, ACE has been a nationally recognized leader in the evaluation of workforce and military training, providing standards, practices, and tools that higher education institutions can rely on. Many nontraditional students can demonstrate college-level knowledge and competencies. Such learning—gained from experiences outside postsecondary education—often merits academic credit. Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) provides a range of options from recognition of military and workforce training to national examinations and portfolio development. With more options comes the increased likelihood for greater numbers of learners to complete credentials.
