Small Business Series

Small Business Series 1

Create Great Business | Small Business Series

In this Problem Solving Workshop you will gain new perspective on how you view problems/challenges and what created them in the first place.

We are all dealt a hand in life, having certain dispositions and character traits that impact how we show up. During this workshop, participants will work through a problem they are currently facing at their organization through the analogy of a card game, using the hand they are dealt, and working with their peers to determine when to play their hand, when to toss in and when to shuffle.

Participants will walk away with tools to analyze and lead through current and future problems, that empower them to take positive, productive and sustainable action.
