This has nothing to do with finance and everything to do with your day-to-day life (at the office and elsewhere).

Guy Kawasaki – VC, former Apple evangelist, and a very entertaining blogger – recently posted a list of things he wished he'd learned in school and points out how traditional education does a poor job of training us all for the workplace.

10+ things Guy Kawasaki wishes he had learned at school:

  1. How to talk to your boss
  2. How to survive a meeting that's poorly run
  3. How to run a meeting
  4. How to figure out anything on your own
  5. How to negotiate
  6. How to have a conversation
  7. How to explain something in 30 seconds
  8. How to write a one-page report
  9. How to write a five-sentence email
  10. How to get along with co-workers
  11. How to use PowerPoint
  12. How to leave voicemail
