Spooky Halloween teaser – just how is it done?
I present you with four cards, guaranteeing that each has a letter on one side and a number on the other.
I tell you that there is a rule: ‘whenever there is an A on one side, the other side has a 3’.
You see an A, a 3, a B and a 7.
What is the smallest number of cards you need to turn over – and what are they? – to prove or disprove this rule?

The real voyage of discovery consists of not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.
attrib Marcel Proust (1871-1922)
[the actual words are
The only true voyage of discovery, the only fountain of Eternal Youth, would be not to visit strange lands but to possess other eyes, to behold the universe through the eyes of another, of a hundred others, to behold the hundred universes that each of them beholds, that each of them is.
Marcel Proust, The captive . trans, CK Scott Moncrieff]
Come to the edge.
We might fall.
Come to the edge.
It’s too high!
COME TO THE EDGE!
And they came
And he pushed
And they flew.
[Christopher Logue, 1926-2011, English poet (often wrongly attrib Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-1918)]
Would you like to be (even) more effective, create more successful working relationships and teams and get the best from people? Emotional Intelligence is rarely taught and yet the insights and understanding it provides can significantly improve all our dealings with other people. Ultimately, everything we do in business boils down to interacting with other people. The better we can do this, the more successful we will be.
This programme of three courses is designed for anyone who wants to improve their business performance.

Serve to lead—how to get the best from people
Trainers: Jeremy Marchant and Kay McMahon
The programme covers communication, leadership, teamwork, self improvement, business relationships and many other topics. These can often appear ‘fluffy’ and unfocussed topics. It can be difficult to see how to apply learning about these subjects, however interesting, to day to day work.
Our courses are firmly situated in delegates’ reality: the business, the office, team meetings, client briefings, negotiation with suppliers and so forth. The courses will contain a wealth of case histories, and ideas of how to apply the principles in daily work.
Each course comes with a free one to one coaching session to consolidate learning and help each delegates apply it to their own work.
