Three Things About Rats

I’m trying to write … so I’m getting distracted – here are the results of my latest distraction.

  • They laugh when they are tickled.
  • Group theory research shows that rats perform better, measured by running faster,  when they are watched by others – humans or rats.
  • Rats will help their other cage-mates if they are trapped even when there is no reward for doing so. ( http://www.livescience.com/17378-rats-show-empathy.html)

Writer, golfer and golf writer, I have developed and moved on (not permanently in case there are any publishers reading this) from the relatively straightforward world of management consultancy with motivation, leadership, change matrices, decision making, communication, customer care, bottom lines, double-loop learning, stress, attribution theory, behavioural interviewing, project management, group think and Johnson and Scholes’ Cultural Web, to the complex and unfathomable world of describing places where people can hit a ball into a hole. I have written for a number of golf magazines and newspapers including 'Golf International' , 'wales on Sunday' and am currently golf correspondent for Cambria Magazine (Wales's Magazine) and blogger for Wales Online.
