Unaccustomed As I Am to Public Speaking

So you have to give a presentation and even though it’s three weeks away, you’re already having palpitations.

It’s okay. You’re not alone. The stress that many people feel when they have to speak in public is right up there with bereavement and divorce. Even the most accomplished managers and leaders can break out in a cold sweat when faced with a row of expectant faces.

What Colour Is Your Underwear?

Think Training & Development believe that the quality of your life depends upon the quality of the questions you ask yourself.

Don’t worry. They don’t actually want to know what colour your underwear is. Especially if it’s grey. The point is, when you saw the question you probably answered it in your head.

The brain is a very powerful thing. It’s like Google. Ask it a question and it will give you an answer. The answer will be based on whatever your brain holds in its database about that subject. more…

I’m Not Crazy… I’m Just Not You

Many organisational conflicts arise from personality clashes. In fact, one of the most common reasons that people give for leaving the company they are working for is that they don’t like their boss or their colleagues.

If you feel more like a referee than a manager most days, the chances are that your team has not yet found a way to pool their resources and use their differences to best effect.

Leadership Training Courses Don’t Work

You may think this is an odd claim, given that it is made by Think Training & Development Limited, a company that specialises in Leadership Training, but picture the scene…

Is The Dark-Side Destroying Your Business?

If you run a business you can probably put your people into one of 3 categories according to how they work and their team skills:

  • Luke SkyWalkers
  • Followers
  • Dark Side

First, the ‘Luke Skywalkers’ of this world. These are the people who will never let you down and strive to achieve great things, whatever is thrown at them (You probably have a few of these in your organisation).

At the other end of the scale, you have those people who primarily like to moan a lot and drag everyone around them down in the process. We’ll call these people ‘The Dark Side’ (You probably have more of these). more…

Which way do you eat your banana?

A strange question you might think, but sometimes we all tick to the same habitual beat without trying something different. That’s why Gavin and Wendie at Think Training & Development take a practical approach to their personal and management development programmes.

Trainees from more than 10 countries are turning to Think for a breath of fresh air and pragmatic approach to communication and personal development training.

By investing in communication skills, leadership programmes and personal development training, companies can increase staff morale and reap the rewards through increased energy, motivation and productivity. more…
