  • Join Us for The Entrepreneurial Journey Webinar

    June 15, 2017  |  11:00am - 12:00pm CST

    A typical progression of an entrepreneur sees them becoming successful in the first stage of their business based on their 'muscle' inside the company and their 'feel' for what they should be doing. They are successful because they have learned behaviors and skills that work. The problems begin to arise when they want to grow their company. They struggle to find the formula for hiring or developing people for their company that can take ownership of various areas. That's the pattern - building a business with 'muscle' and 'feel' and then plateauing when the energy level of the entrepreneur becomes depleted.

    In this webinar, learn the emerging trends we are seeing and how they will help take your leadership plans to a new level.
