product description

For every problem, there exists a solution…and at the very least…an opportunity.

Everywhere you look today there are problems. Turn on your TV or computer—pick up a magazine or paper—and what do you see? Problems! Talk to your spouse, coworkers, family members, or friends, and within minutes, someone will bring up a problem…or two, or three. Problems permeate the workplace, too—new products, old products, customer service, health care, retirement plans, sales, marketing, budgets, IT, personnel—the list of problems we confront each day is vast.

Michael McMillan’s newest release, Pink Bat, will turn your thinking upside down and get you and your team seeing problems as opportunities. Maybe you think this idea seems impossible, but you’re about to discover that “Pink Bat Thinking” makes the impossible possible.

Pink Bat: Turning Problems into Solutions is a must-read for everyone who lives in the world of business, or is a part of any organization. In fact, I predict that once you read it, you’ll want everyone in your company to do the same.

Excellent story. As a middle school educator this story lends itself to teachers finding different and unique solutions to problems we face every year. It is also a great story for helping students understand how to think critically and creatively when attempting to solve their problems.

      Pink Bat
      Pink Bat is a wonderful illustration on how the mind works. Many, many times we get stuck in the problems of life when the solutions are literally one step away. The choice is ours, as Michael puts it, to live a life in the solutions based mindset or problems based mindset. Well done....
