In order to grow your business and get your life back you’ve got to develop strong team members who can help your company scale.

Most entrepreneurs allow themselves to get caught up in the rush of doing business as usual and fail to step back and focus on growing their team.

In this brand new workshop from Maui Mastermind, your staff will get two solid days of the best business training they need to hone seven core business skills.

Business Skill One: The Language of Money.  

In order to have your team make sound business decisions they need to have a basic fluency with the financial concepts that drive your business’s success. They must understand how to read the real story in a P&L and to understand a balance sheet, how gross and operating profit margins work, and why collections and inventory levels matter when managing cash flow.

In this first segment of the day, your team will get the primer on how business financials work in a down to earth, practical way. This will give them the tools they need to understand your company’s financials and make better business decisions as they contribute to helping your company scale.

Business Skill Two: The Language of Business.

If the Language of Money is written in accounting, then the Language of Business is written in contracts and legal concepts. Essentially the Language of Business is the legal framework within which all businesses operate.
In this short segment your team will learn how to protect your company from inadvertent liability, lopsided contracts, and poor documentation.

Business Skill Three: Systems Thinking.

Every business leader knows that she wants her company to be systems driven, but few companies have ever actually trained their team to be fluent in the process of systematizing a business.

In this foundational module your team will learn why systems matter, how they can help the company scale, and the practical steps necessary to systematize your entire business.

This segment will bring all your participating team onto the same page so you can work together to create a culture of creating, refining, and using systems in your company. Finally, your team will all understand why you’ve been pushing for “systems” and how they can best contribute to make it happen.

Business Skill Four: Selling.

Taught for non-sales people, this concentrated module will introduce your team to the bedrock sales skills that they’ll need to help your company succeed. Remember, every team member is part of your sales team, if only in that a sales awareness will help them identify sales opportunities and better pass them on to your sales team.

This module will be taught in a fun, nonthreatening game so your team learns by doing—enjoying lots of laughter along the way.

Business Skill Five: Negotiation.

Your team is continually negotiating on your company’s behalf. With vendors… with clients… with prospects… with suppliers… In this session they’ll learn the 7 core negotiating tools to help them craft better, stronger, and more equitable deals.

When you consider that the average company can save up to 10% on all its future spending by training their team to effectively ask for and get purchasing concessions, this one session alone will likely cover the full cost of bringing your staff with you to the training.

Business Skill Six: The Language of Leadership.

The Language of Leadership is comprised of two halves – self leadership and the leadership of others.

In this module your team gain a thorough grounding in the core Maui Time Mastery tools (e.g. A-B-C-D time, Focus Days, Big Rocks, etc.), plus they’ll get the short-course to become a more effective manger of others.

Business Skill Seven: Marketing.

Again, this module will be taught for non-marketers so that they leave with the 9 most important marketing principles to help your company grow. Just as with sales, every team member has a hand in your marketing, which is how you present your company and its products and services to your marketplace so that you generate a steady flow of leads and position these leads to buy.

The Real Goal of the Business Skills Boot Camp

The real goal of the weekend workshop is to introduce your team to a portfolio of essential business skills, and to give you a framework within which to begin to develop your team to grow to be more competent business people.

You’ll leave with a common set of tools, and clear suggestions of where you can turn to in the vast library of Maui tools and training for each team member to further hone his or her own skills and continue to grow professionally.

Essentially this is the workshop we created that we wished we could have engaged our key employees in years ago. It didn’t exist so new we created it for you and your team.

And much, much more!
