Run For The Hills: They Want To Send You On A Management Training Course!

Thu, 2013-08-08 09:58

We were sent to a variety of short training courses, and we honestly can’t say that we remember anything they tried to teach us. Except for one lesson. In fact, it was so powerful that we never forgot it. In many ways, you can say it shaped much of Phil’s career and eventually led both of us to work with Professor Henry Mintzberg in management development.

So, when I was offered the opportunity to join Accenture in Calgary for 12 weeks, I was more than stoked!
