Management Training Resources: w/c 3rd February 2013

Other items in this week's "Management Training Resources" include another free book from MTL and Bookboon on "Teambuilding; a new quiz on Personal Communication; our review of Bruna Martinuzzi's article on "The Power of the Mind"; and we put the spotlight on the 32 management training products of Thinking Skills.

Free Management Training Materials: "Teambuilding" from MTL and Bookboon

teambuildingbookboon02_175 For many people at work, the process of transforming a team from a raggly mix of people with nothing in common into a high-performing winning unit is the most memorable feature of being at work.

Our bookboon-published book on "Teambuilding" will show you how to take this journey. Download it now from this link... more
