You might have heard, life isn't a picnic or as the Germans say, "life isn't a pony park" That is my rough translation. Is there a way to make work, work for you? Well, it works if you work it -as any AA sponsor knows. What is in the kool-aide? A positive attitude and a can-do spirit. You've got this. Work your English and before long, you will be the one they will be running to get when they need someone with a can-do spirit, whose not afraid to speak up or to lead. Your English can help you build your reputation, so that you can lead a cohesive team in English. Make your English work for you!

There are several different types of managers; some managers simply manage, some lead, and some stand out front; alone. Sometimes, these loners look back to see if anyone is following. The manager was assumed to have all the answers and was incapable of mistakes. Back then, the manager slipped into a telephone booth and changed into his Superman costume. Now, there are no more supermen or women, no more phone booths either. I mean, s/he could change at a gas station, in the loo (toilet stall). However, the world is suspicious of supermen/women; and a mild mannered Clara/Clark Kent, is enough of a hero to save the day (usually). So, we talk about unlikely heroes and the phrasal verbs that help us do business with them.
