"I started off thinking the books were a little childish and too simplistic, then I realized how brilliant they were." Amazon Review
"Best & most important book I’ve read. The structured discipline is much more than a communication method, it shapes your thinking, creating clarity in the midst of ambiguity." Amazon Review
"Such a pleasure to read! informative, compelling, entertaining, and valuable. Provides so much more than just teaching the reader how to write, it teaches them how to think, how to plan, and how to present in business."

Train Your Team How to Think, Write, Present & Sell
I wrote this book because recent grads that we had hired were struggling with crafting clear, succinct, persuasive writing – and I found that I wasn't alone.
The 3 separate studies below, produced by the American Association of Colleges & Universities, Payscale.com and Inside Higher Ed, speak to 'The Skills Gap' in today's workforce, where 40–74% of managers are struggling with the inability of recent graduates they've hired to problem-solve and write. However, a surprising 66%–80% of these same grads believe they are indeed proficient at these skills.
The negative impact on corporations has been significant. INC. Magazine articles report that poor communication is costing corporations $37 Billion / year, and poor writing skills is costing $400 billion / year. That's the financial impact. Think of the impact on people - with higher stress and lower morale. Now it's estimated companies are spending $3 billion in remedial writing training.
After seeing the research and impact on corporations productivity, I decided to continue the fable and write Book-2 to provide a simple, holistic perspective to learn how to solve problems via critical and creative thinking. This expanded into a practical training tool to Learn The A-D-A-P-T-E-R Method; Analyze - Deduce - Author - Perform - Tackle - Evaluate - Refine. Tips and tools to undertake the cycle of strategic thinking through execution.
