An Unbelievable Collection of Free Management Training Resources: "Manage, Click, Learn! 2013"

mcl2013_175 As we do at the start of every year, we've now published this year's compilation of the top 100 management training websites which we call, "Manage, Click, Learn!".

For 2013, we've added sites with resources that, when we started 11 years ago, would have equalled those of the whole book.

In this Smart Learning Lesson from our Maximising Your Potential e-course, we offer 7 pointers that will help you make the most valuable discovery of your life: the discovery of yourself... more

Spotlight on... Influencing & Negotiating Skills

influencing_142 At work, we often need to influence other people as well as take part in more formal negotiations. While, in the past, the key to success in influencing and negotiation was found in the amount of power you had, today that is no longer the case. Using force to get your way often creates exactly what you don't want: a similar forceful reaction or a disengagement from the process.
