Thank you for joining our online events at the Queensland Small Business Week 2018!

Sometimes running your own business can be a little overwhelming. Your business is growing and you're taking on new team members, new clients, and sometimes expanding to new locations! With little training and experience, it can be hard to see the potential for your business to be more than what it already is.
Imagine this: you’ve just arrived at the office and it looks like it will be another busy day. Before you’ve even sat down, one of your team walks into your office and asks for your help with the first customer they are seeing that day.
Once you’ve sorted out that problem, one of your admin staff approach you asking if you have time to assist them with a project that’s due by the end of the week. By the time you’ve finished with these tasks, it’s already several hours into the day and you are behind on your own responsibilities.
If you find yourself in situations like this often, you need to learn how to train your team members to take responsibility and accountability for their own tasks instead of coming to you immediately.
We believe one of the most overlooked responsibilities of a leader is to grow their people. Is it possible that, despite good intentions, you’ve been accidentally diminishing the people on your team?
Millennials currently account for 35% of the Australian workforce and are set to reach 75% by 2030. This emerging generation is gradually changing the way businesses manage their workforce.
Consider this: a manager who regularly steps in to solve problems for their employees is offering only a short-term solution. Intervening in tough situations too often may actually be de-motivating and restrict the long-term growth of your staff - especially if they’re millennials.
Are you creating an environment where people are eager to learn and grow, even throughout challenges, or are you accidentally limiting your team’s personal and professional success?
As businesses compete for top talents from the millennial pool, is your business geared to attract, develop, and retain young workers?
