How to get those moments of clarity

You may have recently seen our Accounts: Debunked webinar, but what does ‘debunked’ actually mean? 

Let’s start with a definition.

Debunked means to cut through the ‘rubbish’ and get to the core of the subject. It's about removing the confusing jargon and acronyms to help you build a true understanding of the foundations of the subject.

As a business owner, you may find that you are hugely successful at what you do. But, you don’t really understand why; what do you do differently to everyone else?

This often occurs when we don’t truly understand a particular experience. When trying to explain what we do to other people, we can’t see why they don’t understand. To us it’s just ‘common sense’ and it can be hard realise that the real problem lies in our own blind areas.

That’s why we’re running a series of webinars and interviews ‘debunking’ different areas of small business. We started with ‘Accounts.’ Ray Moore explained each key areas of accounts that business owners ‘need’ to know and understand to get clear and deeper understanding.

What's next?

Now, we’re excited to announce that we’re teaming up with Paula Fisher, Founder of Practical HR, to produce a two-part webinar interview series – Management: Debunked. Paula has more than 30 years of HR expertise and, alongside Ray Moore, will be covering:

  • Employment law
  • Hiring and firing
  • Home-grown managers
  • Developing the leaders of the future
Register now to receive the webinars.

Ray Moore is on the Fluid Business Podcast with Andy Sleet discussing the DEBUNKED series in more detail. Listen below, or head over to Apple Podcasts or Stitcher.
