Managing people isn’t what you thought you were signing up for when you started your own business. But your business has grown, and so has your team, and now you need to manage the people alongside your business. This three-hour session will help you establish systems and workflows to make sure that you are communicating clearly, establishing healthy boundaries, and setting your employees—and yourself—up for success. We’ll also cover making sure your team is able to get what they need from you in a timely and efficient manner.
