Sometimes corporate and political connections do work well (said entirely tongue in cheek). Nonetheless, the Small Business Advice programme is a great service for established small business owners. An under-served group, in my book. It is such a gift when you get to share a question, concern or hope with someone more experienced. As this time of transition continues, small businesses can use this service to re-focus, plan and take action that will keep them going."
Communication lines are easier to keep open than we think. A simple question like "how's it going?" can become either an update(easy accountability) or find out there is something going on in someone's personal life that will affect his/her performance. And your book recommendation is very much appreciated! Thanks for commenting! "
Hi Heather, Thanks for commenting. As small business owners, we do want to find that thing that maximizes our performance as leaders and managers. We want to be excellent, the best. It is also important to take into consideration that there is a lot to absorb. It takes time and experience of the day-in and day-out rather than aiming for the big event."
