(Webinar) Strictly Business – Align Your Employees Around Your Powerful Mission

Build your success on a focused team of amazing people!

How do you find and motivate those incredible employees who will propel your business forward?

In most companies, there are a few people who are superstars with results far above the norm – in production, design, customer service, administration, everywhere. So how do you find more of those people? And how do you encourage everyone to bring their best to work every day, with inspiration, dedication, and great teamwork?

We’ll learn from some inspiring companies which are successfully doing this by rallying the troops around their sense of common mission and purpose. Whether it’s changing the world or just supporting the local community, this powerful purpose matters. We’ll see how to translate it into attracting, building and retaining those amazing people who will work with you to bring that vision to life.

You want to make a difference. Everybody does.
