I'm putting together a marketing packet and one of the pieces in it (a
self-mailer) has this list:
Do you want your staff to: Get along with others? Solve problems? Get the
things done? Stop frittering away time? Really pay attention and listen? Work
independently? Motivate others? Improve their images? Think before they
speak/decide? Not just for new managers, this two-day workshop builds
participant skills in these areas.
It's a paragraph and not a bulleted list, and it's that pesky colon after the
"to" that I'm unsure of. I can't find a definitive answer. What's correct?
