Managing People in a Small Business

Mon 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM

**NEW** “Managing People in a Small Business” (FREE) There is a simple question you should ask yourself if you own a small business and have employees. Are my employees making money for me or are they costing me money? Your skills as a manager will determine the answer. Small business owners are trying to manage in the most complex workplace ever. Employees, especially young employees, certainly have not gotten easier to manage. The technological challenges are far greater than they have ever been. Government restrictions are tighter than in any environment in recent memory. Today’s new rules demand better small business managers. Just as in the past, today’s small business owners must motivate themselves and others, set priorities, make decisions, communicate clearly and face challenges; however, the best owner/manager must also understand personality styles, operate without clear boundaries due to constant change, deal with a higher stress level than ever before and create new reward systems. “Managing Employees in a Small Business,” offers a wide range of practical information that allows small business owners/managers to manage more effectively. During this seminar, you will learn: • Why too many owners/managers manage from their hearts and not their heads • How to find good employees • How to deal with “difficult” employees • How to “catch people doing things right” and retain good employees • How to deal with underperforming employees • How to be a better teacher, which is what great leaders really are • When it is time to be “The Boss” “Managing Employees in a Small Business” focuses on ways to make the reality of employees more profitable and less of a cost center. Please register for this seminar by following the instructions on page 1. If you do not have internet access, call 910-272-3631 to register. Walk-ins are welcome as space allows.
