Find a good subject, a good teacher, and an hour of blocked time and you have a great team-building idea for a management team.
I’ve seen this work with many different business-related topics. The first time I saw it, I was part of an Apple Computer team listening to marketing guru Lynn Phillips explain value-based marketing. His marketing theory was spellbinding. And it wasn’t just me — I was one of about two dozen. That half day sparked a delightful shower of new ideas and long-term discussions. Whatever Apple paid him was well worth it.
