Management Training Resources: w/c 10th June 2012

This week, we have a new coaching story for you on the threats of change. It's called "Ugg and Bogg" and you can read it at the first link below.

Other items in this week's "Management Training Resources" include a free management training product that we couldn't do without; a new quiz on Laws and Rules; the 9th in our series of hints and links, on Communications; and our suggestions for a special Father's Day gift.
