You have been learning since before you were born, and you’ll never stop learning. It’s automatic, it’s easy and it’s what your brain does best.

Whilst learning is a natural and automatic process, learning how to do a job is not. To perform in a particular job, we need a lot of knowledge that we don’t know that we need.

Traditional training and teaching focus on knowledge, and concepts such as 'accelerated learning' are simply attempts to increase the retention of that knowledge.

What if knowledge, in itself, is irrelevant?

Because, let's face it, you don't really want people just to know stuff. You want people to be able to do stuff. And for that, traditional training methods are ineffective.

What if there was a way to structure learning so that learners do the right things, whether they're being watched or not?

What if there was a way to combine learning with performance management to create true engagement and accountability?

What if there was a way to structure learning so that it could be delivered easily, any time, any place, by anyone, faster and with immediate, observable, measurable results?

Well, now there is.

Reviews

Paul Boross' Pitching Bible is a must for entrepreneurs. Crammed full of useful tactics to maximise communication and the psychology involved in the successful pitch, it's a confidence booster and an entertaining read too.

Peter Freeth has a unique approach to putting theory into action. I recommend his book to Learning and Development professionals, HR managers or trainers.

Manny Richter, Human Resources Manager, Bostik

After hearing positive remarks about this book through repeated mentions on various forums, blogs, etc., I made the purchase.

Peter Freeth has a clear writing style that feels like a relaxed conversation between the author and reader. The chapters aren't filled with unnecessary dialogue in an attempt to be overly complex. The material is very thorough, well structured and clear...and the exercises included are relevant to the material presented in the prior chapter. Hard to put down.

With about 20 NLP books on my "shelf", this is one I wish I had purchased earlier in the game.

I have received the book 'Unsticker' by Peter Freeth Expert in High Performers, Author, Coach. It's amazing book. It has tons of questions to make me powerful problem solver. The questions are easy to understand and very helpful to be more creative. A question on each page make this book unique. One of the coolest thing about this book is that you don't need to read from the begining to end. You can pick up any 2-5 pages (2-5 questions) and they are good enough to solve your problems. Almost everyone should have this book with them all the time. Much recommended.

Job hunting is not what it used to be and you need to keep up to date if you want to have the best chance of getting the job you want. This is a great little book...lots of practical advice and tips a must for anyone looking for a job ....very current, highly recommend it! You could even have it with you while you are waiting to be interviewed, all the advice is short, sweet and to the point!

Boross is the boss when it comes to successful, effective, memorable pitching. Gavin Duffy, Dragon's Den Ireland

I have seen Paul Boross in action and marvelled at the effect his presentation techniques have on an audience. His book, The Pitching Bible, in a simple, straightforward way makes one think hard about the art of presenting; it isn't just a matter of standing up and doing it. Mr Boross explains in crystal clear terms the dynamics between Presenter and Audience and how the presenter, you, can Seize The Day. If Presenting or Pitching fills you with fear and loathing but you've got to do it, or you just want techniques on how to improve your already sparkling performance, this is the book for you. Highly recommended.

Working in a dynamic environment with foreign management with differing work ethics and cultures can lead to a lack of cohesion. The Business Cohesion Model highlights the challenges that leaders face and recommends the course of action to be taken to achieve cohesion. A must read for all leaders.
