    Description: A part of Impact Hub’s Successful Entrepreneur Workbench Series

    In many ways your employees are your most valuable assets.  They interface with your customers, they perform critical activities, and you depend on them to keep your business running—essentially employees are the lifeblood of any business.

    However, many entrepreneurs struggle with managing their employees.  They find it difficult to hire the right people, they don’t get the performance they want, and they’re frustrated with ongoing problems.  And, as we all know, poor employee performance can cripple a business.

    This workbench will teach you the skills to get the results you want from your staff. We’ll cover practical hands-on examples, and you’ll learn techniques you can immediately apply in your business. Attendees are also welcome to bring specific issue to the session for discussion.

    Skills you will learn:

    How to know when you need to hire staff, or to grow your staff
    How to interview potential employees and select the right ones
    How to manage employees day-to-day and ensure you’re getting results
    How much supervision you should give, and the right kind of supervision
    How to keep your employees motivated and engaged
    How to give feedback and correct problems
    How to avoid the key employee pitfalls that get entrepreneurs into trouble
    What to do when you have employees supervising other employees

    Who should attend:

    Entrepreneurs who have one or more employees
    Entrepreneurs who believe they might need to hire staff
    Entrepreneurs who already have multiple employees and want to become more effective managers

  • Negotiations and Influence for Entrepreneurs - Impact Hub Boulder - 04/29/2014 - 4:15 pm - 7:15 pm
    Starts: 10:15 PM
    Ends: April 30, 2014 - 1:15 AM
    Location: Impact Hub Boulder
    Description: As entrepreneurs, we are negotiating and influencing all the time—with co-founders, team members, contractors, investors, board members, vendors, joint venture partners, key customers, etc.  Good negotiation and influence skills are a key to leading a successful startup.

    In this 2.5 hour fast-moving program, you will learn a practical model for negotiation and influence. This approach is not about just getting the best deal or getting agreement.  The vast majority of negotiations are best resolved by finding creative solutions and generating new possibilities.  This is not easy to do in the midst of tension, conflict, and differences.

    Used effectively, this negotiation and influence approach will help you navigate tough situations, create solid agreements, and also build trust.  And, it is not only effective in a business environment, it will also improve your ability to resolve family conflicts, handle community matters, lead meetings, etc.

    In this program, you’ll learn practical tools to break out of ineffective patterns, be more persuasive, and lead negotiations that build relationships and produce results.

    Tough conversations with team members
    Strategy decisions with your direct reports and co-founders
    Managing investors and board members
    Pricing with a key customer
    Dealing with angry or upset customers
    Partner negotiations
    Negotiations with vendors, suppliers, and or other groups
