Want More Success? Then Keep Learning!

Studies have repeatedly shown that the most successful business owners are those who are constantly learning new ideas. The good news is there are lots of great business books out there. The challenge for most of us is finding the time to actually read them.


That's where NIELSEN Business Coaching Book Summaries come in. This is a regular event where you will pick up the key ideas and themes from a great business book, and get some ideas on how to start applying those to your business right away.


And the best part? You don't even need to read the book! We'll cover the key points, have a great group discussion, and get you on your way. You'll walk out with a several page summary, new knowledge, and introductions to like-minded business owners and professionals who also want to learn and be successful!

This Month's Book - How To Be A Great Boss by Gino Wickman - Friday July 29 @ Noon!

Why Being a Great Boss is Critical

Great companies have engaged employees, and the single biggest reason for positive employee engagement is working for a great boss. And, of course, the flip side is that business owners and company’s biggest challenges are with people. Your ability to compete in the marketplace isn’t about technology, or ideas, or patents. Ultimately, it’s about people. And to get the most out of people you need great bosses.


Having Great People – The Right People in the Right Seats

Having great people makes all the difference. Kip Tindell, CEO of The Container Store, believes that a great employee is 3X more productive than a good employee. With that in mind, they pay their employees 50% to 100% above the industry average and hold them to high standards.  3X the work for 2X the pay…  a good deal.


The Right People are those who share your core values and they Get It, Want It and have the Capacity to do it in terms of the positions and responsibilities they need to fill.


The Five Leadership Practices

Leadership is a difficult thing to categorize.  Dwight D. Eisenhower famously used an exercise to illustrate the art of leadership. He laid an ordinary piece of string on a table and explained:

“Pull the string and it will follow you wherever you go. Push it and it will go nowhere at all. It’s just that way when it comes to leading people.”

Join us to learn about the 5 Leadership Practises that create powerful and effective teams.


The Five Management Practices

It’s important to recognize that management is not something you do TO someone, it’s something that you’re doing for them.  Excellent management is all about helping your team stay focused and on track with the most important things. Join us to learn about the five basic management practices that will drive accountability across your team if you’re doing them correctly. 


You should read it, but even better than just reading the book is getting a chance to discuss it with other business owners. And that's what Business Book Summaries are all about!

Who Should Attend?

Business, owners, leaders, and professionals who want to learn ways to improve their operations and not fly by the seat of their pants. Also those who have a desire to keep learning but don't have the time nor the inclination to read, or just realize they will get more out of the discussion of the material than only reading it!
