SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS STRATEGIES FOR OWNERS & MANAGERS

Whether it is coordinating a large company or leading a small group of passionate trainers, strategies for successful goal setting and effective execution are addressed in this creative and entertaining presentation. Great management is not about begging staff to complete a project or providing deadlines in the heat of the moment, it is about getting it done with a professional, success-oriented and dedicated team.
