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.

Highly Recommended
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: Turning Problems Into Solutions
      I found Michael M illian book, PINK BAT fascinating. He helps the reader to think more positively and see possibilities where others do not. His illustrations are wonderful and I liked the smallness of the book. His story in the beginning might have been shortened a little with more examples at the end. Thanks for an interesting read and one to lend to friends. John B

          Pink Bat
          When I pick up a Simple Truths product I am usually "blown away" and I recommend your products to all my friends and clients. So my expectations for Pink Bat were set in that light. I was more than a little disappointed with the book and the DVD. The book did not measure up to the quality of some of the other products that I previously purchased. The DVD content was ok but I found the disc itself difficult to load. (thought I was one of those bad computer days) I used several laptops and had the same problem. The book's layout and font size did not measure up to some the better books in your product line. Using the content of the Pink Bat DVD the reader doesn't have a problem, the message comes through loud and clear and Simple Truths has the opportunity to use the premise to take the "problem and provide a solution" Sorry for the negative input The content I would recommend to others and I loved the animation but the overall presentation was not up to your usual high standards.
