APPLY: #BSW8 Opens…

#BSW8 is the eighth edition in series of the Business Skills Workshop an initiative of the World Economic Forum Global Shapers to empower Micro Entrepreneurs with the skills they need to run sustainable businesses.

Leading a strong team in business is an important aspect of business building and growth. The need to adopt new insights as well as knowledge to gain competitive advantage and hit good margins lies in the productivity of the people you have within your business.

How do you take your team from the ground to the top? How do you maximize your team? How best do you motivate your team? How do you help your team reach their fullest potential? How do you become an effective team player?

All these questions will be answered at #BSW8.

#Recommended: Start Ups and Founders….

I found this article and thought to share.

The conversation which characterises this topic is similar to the discussions about Nonprofit organisations and founders which I always advise clients to be wary about.
