    I love your use of the lemonade stand (selling lemonade) as an intro to the analogy you use in this buzz. The 4 P's make total sense to me. I only ran one business on for myself long ago. I quit work after I gained enough clients to stay home and babysit. I had a set price before I began, each parent received a report at the end of each day with activities that were done, times naps were taken, food(s) eaten, anything I noticed that seemed to be out of character and of course a verbal report for those who weren't in a hurry to run as soon as they walked in. I expected to be paid every other Friday, and I also gave the parents a list of the days off I would take during the year, barring anything unexpected. It worked well for me and for them. I realize I'm not talking about Corporate America but that was a part of my life for over 2 years and I took my job seriously. I wanted the kids to be happy, the parents and of course myself too. I really enjoyed it. My husband, on the other hand, has a white board in his office at home with is business model, it looks a bit similar. I will have to share this with him and of course, others! PS: First time I've heard of the 4 P's, it's different when you are working for and with your husband ;-) I call myself his gal friday.

    The title grabbed my attention because of what was once a popular business simulation called The Accounting Game. It taught participants how to read a financial statement and understand ratios through a simulation of a child running a lemonade stand. Often, simplicity is the best approach to conveying complex concepts.

    That brings me to the models you shared. For a long time, I used the 4Ps model as a way of introducing groups to the power of analytical grids. I stopped when an executive who had engaged me to work with his team dismissed it as archaic, tired, and WAY too basic. He did this in front of his entire team and it was embarrassing. I had sent him a very detailed outline or what I proposed to cover and, based on the profiles his team completed, people were not familiar with the model. He never had the "time" to review what I proposed or tweak the agenda to reflect his preferences. In retrospect, he was pushing his own hot buttons and not the teams. This is a trap into which many leaders fall.

    I think one of the most powerful things team leaders and facilitators can do is help team members bring order out of chaos and simplicity out of complexity. When they are in the midst of complex situations, simple models, tools, and metaphors can help people make sense out of confusing dynamics. This is particularly when they are facing a time crunch.

    Thank you for sharing this. Perhaps I was not out to lunch after all. What do other people think?

    Thank God for @Graham🐝 Edwards. I am so fed up with hearing social media would-be marketing Gurus telling people to concentrate on producing a quality product and a top rate customer "experience" and forget about price. It is advice that more often than not leads to failure. Graham's 4P quadratic is ever so much more realistic and based on real world experience. Kudos for a great piece, Graham. Am sharing it as well to the Business Hub hive.

    Thanks for the post. I have been getting some flak from the younger generation about this style of communications. I now know that two people on the planet sense the need for better "in person" presentation skills. I enjoyed your comments concerning room acclamation. You can prepare all you want but the nature of the room and folks in it cant be known. Show up early, meet some people you will be speaking before and learn your audience. I have become rusty as i don't speak as must as used to, but still remember each and every beginning lesson learned, like it was yesterday.

What LinkedIn said was no longer possible, and what I found in recent times was a legion of users concerned about offending and attacking others, with nothing being done to contain these attitudes.

    The thing that really gets me is as a reader. I think a lot of people spend more time reading on social media like LInkedIn and BeBee. I can put up with not having exposure as a writer, but when you can choose what you want to see and read, and notifications are muddy as they are in the new interface, yuk.

    Now going to LinkedIn is like going to the bathroom. You walk in, you do what you have to do, and you walk out.

    Sometimes if the politics and abuse are there, you have to wash your hands after.
    Marisa Fonseca Diniz
    03/03/2017 #15 Marisa Fonseca Diniz
    I really enjoyed your publication, Claire. I thought this negative experience had only happened to me, but from what I can see there are several people who have realized that LinkedIn is no longer a positive professional platform.

    I exclude all my LinkedIn articles but not my profile and I have noticed with each passing day that the network has become a den of negative, envious and controversial people in their comments, which add nothing positive to our careers.
