People – Can’t find the right ones! Can’t get them in the right seats! These are just a few of the common frustrations in running your own business and it’s super competitive out there for the right talent. In this workshop, we will be hands-on in helping you discover how to attract, hire, on-board and develop your most precious assets – your people. We will help you find ways to get “right people” into “right seats”.   

We will help you discover the importance of culture, vision and purpose as a “retention” tool. We will walk through a simple talent assessment tool to help you know where to spend your development resources. We will teach you 5 management and 5 leadership practices and what the differences are between leaders and managers. 

Finally, we will work through some simple tools and concepts to help you build a better leadership team that is coachable, open, honest and vulnerable – because, quite frankly – most leadership teams are not “teams” – they are just individual leaders stuck on a team. So goes the leadership team, so goes the rest of the organization.
