How to Manage a Business
Managing other people effectively depends on managing yourself. Better business performance will therefore flow from improving your self-management skills. We have identified 8 different aspects of managing as business – managing yourself, your time, your employees, your customers, sales and networks, solving problems, managing risk, and managing your finances. This workshop identifies the issues you may face in each area, and provides you with practical recommendations for dealing with them. Included in the workshop are several evaluation tools that can be used to better manage your business.
