Management Training Resources: w/c 29th January 2012

This week, we have a new newsletter for you on why many of us procrastinate over important things such as tax returns which, in the UK, are due this week. Read it in the first link below.

Other items in this week's "Management Training Resources" include 8 gambits that will help you take charge of negotiations; how to put your business on autopilot in the third of our "Work the System" reports; why we love the "Step by Step Series"; and our round-up of all January 2012's features.

New Newsletter: "Taxing Your Patience"

tax After the celebrations of Christmas and the New Year a month ago, the end of January brings many of us back down to earth with a bump as, here in the UK, it's tax-return time. Despite promising to take a more positive approach every year, I still find myself dragging my feet about filling in my tax return. I've established that there are 3 reasons why I procrastinate and they're probably the clues as to why over 4 million other people do the same. Find out what these 3 reasons are in this newsletter and take bets on whether I can train myself to do better next year... more

Management Training Products: MTL Step-by-Step Series

stepbystep We're rather attached to our MTL Step-by-Step Series. They were the first management training products that we developed at ManageTrainLearn some 15 years ago when we moved from being a predominantly standup training company to being a predominantly digital training company. We were able to put into the Step-by-Step series all the techniques, theories, and tips that we had learnt over years of management training for clients in the UK. And since then, we've built on them, revising and re-shaping them to take on board new thinking and new research. Find out why we love this series so much and download a free sampler... more

We also brought you the final two quizzes in our review of 2011. And in our spotlight on MTL management training products, we looked at some rather special SkillBoosters, MTL mini-courses, and the Project Management one-day course plans.
