For Owners, Managers, and Entrepreneurs -

Are you challenged to keep up with the daily routines in your business while also trying to focus on growth... but uncertain what to do first?

Join us for an action-oriented program designed to help businesses at all stages overcome barriers and take action to achieve goals.

exploded GWEvery business, from pre-venture to start-up to established enterprise, must address four key challenges. You need an attractive business concept, lasting customer relations, profitable operations, and a strong organization.

The first session on 2/23 is free of charge. After learning more about this unique series, you can decide to join us for the next 9 sessions.  Viewing your business or organization from multiple perspectives, with a visual toolkit we'll supply, you can start to determine which areas to focus on first in order to strengthen and grow your business in the coming year.

Note that this approach works just as effectively for non-profit and community organizations.

In our workshop sessions (every 2nd and 4th Tuesday morning from Feb 23-July 12), we'll meet together to explore all 20 Focus Areas on your Growth Wheel. You'll address each one in a roundtable format with other participants, have lots of interaction and assistance as you Get Focused, Set an Agenda, Make Decisions, and Take Action!


Join us on Feb 23 to learn more and then decide - or go ahead right now and reserve your spot for the full program.  Registration options available here.  This workshop series is offered in partnership with our friends at the Greater Augusta Regional Chamber of Commerce.

Fees:  $150 for GARCC Members; $200 for non-members.
Your fee covers all 10 sessions, 20 Focus Areas, your GW Notebook and Worksheets, plus light breakfast and coffee.

Bring the Team!  Because GW is such a dynamic tool that covers all aspects of your business, you will benefit if more than one member of your team attends. Send a second or third member from your organization for only $50 each. They can each attend all sessions or pick and choose according to their roles, the topics, and their availability.
