If you want the unvarnished truth about motivating young people, who better to turn to than a football manager. Fife College clearly realised this when it invited Jim Leishman of Dunfermline FC to talk the talk at a business lunch.
Honesty was among the better policies, Leishman told his audience. "Instead of telling the team you are at the second bottom of the second league, it's better to say you are the 34th top team in Scotland and that you're going to aim for the top three in the league."
Honest as the day is long.
