3/10

Obviously not paying attention to business this week – only 3/10 in NBR’s Biz Quiz.


What fruit are you?

September 26, 2014

What fruit are you?

I’m a grape:

You’re adaptable and intelligent. Always one step ahead of the rest, your friends often rely on you to know the answer to any question or help update their resumes. If everyone would just let you write ‘The Rules for Life’ that everyone must follow, the world would be a better place.

I’ve never thought of myself as a grape, nor ever thought of grapes as adaptable and intelligent.


Friday’s answers

September 26, 2014

Thursday’s questions were:

1. Who said: A leader is a dealer in hope.?

2. What is the source of this sentence: Where there is no vision, the people perish. ?

3. It’s too easy in French, guida in Italian, liderazgo in Spanish and ārahitanga in Maori, what is it in English?

4. Who wrote How to Win Friends and Influence People?

5. Which three qualities do you require in a leader?

Points for answers:

Andrei got four right and a near-enough for #4 (had you given just the surname you’d have got five) so wins a virtual batch of ginger crunch.

Alwyn got four and a near enough for #3 (leadership not leader) so also wins a virtual batch of ginger crunch.

J Bloggs got four and PDM got three.

Are you a leader?

September 20, 2014

Are you a leader?

Born Leader

You are talented, confident, and capable. You have excellent communication skills. You know how to delegate. You persevere against all odds. Above all, you are naturally charismatic – and as a result you are able to inspire others to achieve great things.

Hmm, this isn’t the real me, but maybe one to aspire to?
