Books are read, seminars attended, ideas generated but when it's time to head back to the office, little if anything, really changes. "A-ha moments" fade faster than a New Year's resolution and the same patterns persist. As much as people talk about success, the truth is most individuals and organizations never achieve it. Not because they can't, but because they
choose not to act on knowledge that corrects self-defeating behaviours.
Gair Maxwell reveals why The Knowing-Doing G.A.P. exists and how to close it with new mind-to-muscle patterns that inspire growth, action and passion for one's cause, company or personal purpose. No more excuses. No more inertia or irrational fears. Just effective, deliberate action, releasing untapped organizational power and human potential. Great insight worth "Knowing". A learning experience definitely worth "Doing".
You have determination, ambition and aspirations. You may even have faith, hope and persistence on your side. Yet, you wonder why many of your dreams fade into the oblivion of wishful thinking, never to come true. Or maybe your biggest dreams are lying dormant as you exchange achievement and adventure for soul-sucking daily existence and survival. Nobody likes to admit they are not living their dream. In business or in life.
Join internationally-recognized author and speaker, Gair Maxwell for DreamDay 7 and discover hands-on methods that allow otherwise ordinary people to achieve extraordinary dreams.

If you believe the possibility of having a dream come true is what makes life interesting, then lace up your boots, step back into the ring and fight for the dreams that matter most.
Nuts, Bolts and a Few Loose Screws
Understanding the Corporate Annual Report: Nuts, Bolts, and A Few Loose Screws provides a clearly written, step-by-step guide to understanding corporate annual reports. Authors Fraser and Ormiston instruct readers on how to ignore the PR letters from the corporate management team, engaging graphics, and other "garnishes" that typically accompany current annual reports in order to focus on what really counts--a company's performance and financial health! Throughout the book, the authors examine management's attempts to manipulate earnings and other performance measures, and they explain what the numbers in the report really mean. Chapter titles include: I Told My Daughter Not to Invest in Enron; Earnings: Real and Imagined; Assets, Liabilities, and Equity: What a Firm Owes and Owns; Cash Flows: Operating, Financing, Investing; and a Comprehensive Analysis. For individuals trying to make sense--and dollars--out of corporations' annual reports
