Driving Accountability in your Organization

Driving Accountability in your Organization
Accountability in an organization is just as important as anything else people do on the job. It means that every single team member has made a personal commitment to meet or exceed the company's goals. It's not a bullet point on a job description but rather a mentality embodied by all. In this environment, employees never stop asking themselves, "What else can I do to ensure that I am performing at optimal levels?" And it starts at the top… with the Leader.
In this workshop, you will learn:
· What a culture of accountability or non-accountability looks like
· How you build a culture of accountability
· What it takes to reset a company culture

The Ideal Customer Profile for You and Your Team

The Ideal Customer Profile for You and Your Team
Everyone knows that you need to create a successful marketing strategy in order to have a successful business. But this fundamental requirement isn’t always formalized in a small business, and it begins at the top... with the Leader. Therefore, before you decide how to market to potential customers, make sure you first take the time to figure out who your company is going to market to. And if the Leader can’t articulate it clearly and unambiguously, how is the rest of the organization expected to create winning strategies directed to these ideal customers?
Don’t neglect one of the most important aspects of marketing: defining your ideal customer profile (ICP).
In this workshop, you will learn:
· Why it’s important for the Leader to be clear and unambiguous about the ICP
· How to define the ideal customer in a manner understandable to your team
· Why the ICP is one of the most important things you can do for your business
