Growing pains can be both exciting and challenging. It’s a thrill to see tangible proof that your business is succeeding. At the same time, finances, resources and people get stretched. Business owners committed to being profitable seek out experts to help them get the right balance between increasing revenue, investing in expansion and paying bonuses.

Maybe we are focusing on the wrong things. Instead of just considering best practices to guide what we do, let's look at a few tips on how not to give a presentation.
Education Week (free registration)
In a high school classroom, about 20 teachers were asked to ponder: How are they a problem for others? How can they help things go right? And how can they be more helpful to others?
The teachers, who are either in their first year teaching or are new to Prince George's County public schools in Maryland, were learning about developing an "outward mindset," a concept coined by the Arbinger Institute, a consulting firm that works to change the culture of corporations, nonprofits, government, public safety, and other organizations.
