Mar 20 @ 7:30 am – 9:00 am

Four Strategic Secrets — Grow You Business During a Booming Economy, SCORE Workshop with Waxhaw Business Association

Introduction:  In today’s growing market, local business and non-profit leaders are forced to face the reality of a very competitive landscape while also managing rising internal pressures. These challenges compel business owners to be strategic, more than ever, in order to grow their businesses in a boom market!

Whether a small business, medium, large or non-profit, FOUR STRATEGIC SECRETS to growing your business will be revealed during this interactive presentation.

The Problem: It is easy to believe that during good economic times and rapid local growth that running or expanding a business might be easy. That is certainly not the case. Pressures on finding good employees, creating effective process, and developing a solid foundation to grow a business becomes even harder during times of growth due to rising competition, internal challenges and additional market pressures.

Overview: In today’s session we will discuss and share examples of reframing and articulating presenting problems so leaders can:  1) declutter issues, 2) establish system-solutions, 3) optimize the business culture, and 4) set meaningful goals.
