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


Phil and I remember being younger managers in large multinationals (IBM for me) back in the 90′s, and in my case, the 80′s.

In fact, it was so powerful that we never forgot it.

Phil LeNir is a former student of mine, former middle manager in a high tech firm and now CEO of Coachingourselves.
