Webinar-Creative Products from Traditional Sources

March 30, 2017

Atlanta Georgia Employment Resource Center

With the rapidly growing demand for underserved small business loans ($100-500k),  traditional lenders are focusing more on new product and program offerings that target the middle of the funding pack ($250K or less) and better meeting the primary credit needs of small businesses, such as charge cards and more capital investment with technical assistance.  The desire for small businesses to bypass lengthy paperwork, along with their need for charge cards is pushing traditional sources to become more responsive and creative.

April 21- 9 Steps to Capitalize on Opportunities

To capitalize on anything means, you are willing to take a chance to gain something, to get an advantage, profit from, make the most of, or exploit a situation.  You want to capitalize on opportunity using the highest level of integrity.  

Opportunities are always around us, yet we don’t capitalize on them.  We don’t even see or recognize them when they are in our face.  And we scratch our heads wondering what happened, defining ourselves by it, giving up or not giving as much as we should toward achieving our goals.  This session will teach you 9 things you need to know to get what is yours – finally!

•Enterprises will Continue to Struggle to See Beyond Features. 
Most enterprises start with a list of features (e.g., a blogging tool, a coauthoring tool, etc.). The better approach is to identify first what you are trying to achieve. Then look for the right tool that helps you achieve your intended outcome. Typical work goals:

April 28 - Play to Win Strategy – Don’t Play to Play



ABOUT the Workshop

Does this sound like you and your business?
- Your vision is abstract  

- Your mission statement lack context

 - Your future state makes no reference to your competition or customers

In order to be sustainable, an organization must seek to win in a particular place and in a particular way, translating an abstract, happy future into a defined winning aspiration.

Imagine how different your business would look if you knew:
- What your winning aspiration is?

 - Where you will play?

- What management systems you need to build support and measure a strategy?

- How you will win?

- What strategic set of capabilities you must have to excel?

 

In Playing to Win, your organization defines its biggest strategic problem and formulates several strategic possibilities for solving that problem in a three day workshop.
