Ever had a great idea that was shot down before you had a chance to try it out?
You may have been the victim of a "killer phrase" - a knee-jerk response
that squelches new ideas; most commonly said by bosses, parents
and government officials.
The book is both humourous and serious and focuses on a strategy
to identify these phrases, determine their causes, exploring the
options and taking action.
How many of these have you heard?
- Do you realise the paperwork it will create?
- We've tried that before
- It'll never work!
- Great idea, but not for us
