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
I originally bought the book for myself and was so moved by it -I decided to share it with my 25 year old son. He had the privilege of dealing with some extreme life changing events and we all struggle with sometimes seeing our glass as half empty - but the book lays out how possible it is to find solutions to our problems really is simply how we view everyday situations which makes a huge difference when we're able to accomplish this in our day to day...Easy read and inspiring! Thank you!

      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
