Apply Creative & Fun Methods in Your Daily Business
June 04, 2014

Have you got time for fun in business?

This month’s Ezine takes you towards fun methods of

- Brain-training

- Selective Reading

- Creative Problem Solving

- Parables, Stories and Metaphors for Business

- Using Quotes in Strategy and Communication

- Building that ideal Problem Statement.

Since we last wrote to you, a lot of material has been produced to introduce these topics to you. Our fun-filled page on Brainteasers and their answers has received a lot of response right across the board. We followed this up with a super collection of Business Parables, Stories and Metaphors that you can use in either coaching others or addressing some problem situations.

As part of our Time Management Programme we have produced a video on how to get a handle on reading more effectively. In the video, there are some great and easy steps how to manage what you are reading better and thereby, your time management skills. A lot of people were responding to the quotes we have been putting on our pages, so we have put these into two freely available videos on Youtube. These can be useful in polishing off presentations or training that you may wish to do.

Finally, as part of our Quality Management Programme, we are providing another free video which will help you define your problem in a “Problem Statement”. We have been having a lot of very positive feedback on this, so we hope you like it! Further, we have updated our pages on:

- List of Recommended Books

- Time Management Reading skills

- Business Humour or Humor

And last, but not least, we have added a free template and training on how to carry out a Competitor Analysis and the 7Ps of Marketing Mix.

We certainly hope that you find some material here to get you ahead in your workplace, or indeed in your private lives. Let us know how you are getting on – or indeed, if there are any areas that you would like to see us cover.

Facebook / Business Online Learning

Unfortunately, we have to report that the majority of you who would have joined us on Facebook, are not seeing our posts.

Facebook wants to increase their advertising revenue by limiting the exposure of Business Pages. If you would like to see what updates we are posting, please click a like or comment on anything we have posted. Sorry about that! Business Online Learning on Facebook
