FOCUSED ON THE HUMAN SIDE OF BUSINESS
Great vision without great people is irrelevant.Jim Collins
Employees’ efforts drive organizational success.
The other day I got a call from a small business owner who has having performance challenges with some of their front-line employees. As we talked, it became clear that their management team didn’t know the basics of employment law. Another call came from an entrepreneur who was hiring their first worker and wasn’t sure if they were an independent contractor or an employee.
I could go on.
No matter if we are entrepreneurs, small business owners, corporate leaders, non-profit managers, or business consultants, we still need guidance from a trusted advisor. One who has experience managing employees in a variety of industries, who has studied employment law, and has their own business.
I am your guide to the human side of business including hiring, on-boarding, setting expectations, performance management, defining culture, managing change, and if necessary terminating an employee.
