Good customers deserve the best!
Well, I did promise I would not spam you! Finally another Newsletter from us!
So what has been happening with you since?
Here at Business Online Learning, we have been very busy.
This week alone we have produced three new free videos. If you have a chance, do check them out.
One is for the International Women’s Day, where we give the guidelines on how to dress professionally as a woman.
Business Fashion For Women: Tips & Advice on Professional Dress Code
The next video is the first in our series of Problem Solving Videos and starts with the defining your problem. In 4 minutes, it gives you a really good technique on how to “make your problem Statement” – which is, as we all know, halfway to finding a good solution. What is A Problem Statement
On the website, we have been working hard on the topic of Quotes. Our page on Communication Quotes has been receiving a lot of positive feedback from people we have shared it with. What was the most fascinating about the work we did on this was researching the background of the people who made the quotes!
Did you know:
Rania Al Abdullah is actually the Queen of Jordan? Her husband elevated her to the status of Queen, as the husband, the king, has to declare her Queen first. Unfortunately her mother-in-law did not have that luck and remained a princess all her life.
George Bernhard Shaw died at the age of 96 from complications arising from a fall from a ladder. That said a lot about the power of the man for me!
Maslow, the author of the famous hierarchical needs pyramid spent his life studying concepts of Self-actualization. Apparently one trigger for this life long search came from his mother,
who had him declared mentally unstable when he was a teenager. (Source: Wikipedia)
Edward Murrow was a charismatic journalist, who came to fame with his news broadcasts during the second world war. Up until then, people were only used to reading about the war in the Newspapers. This was technology moving forward when Murrow made his News reports, “This is London Calling”.
Peter Drucker, the writer on management concepts and creator of “Management by Objectives” was subjected to a huge campaign of slander over years. Some reported that this may have had something to do with the fact that he refused to join the Scientology church. (Source: Wikipedia)
