According to a recent independent Market Study conducted on behalf of the LTU Collaboratory, TALENT is a major issue for early-stage companies. But who wants to work for a small entrepreneurial company?
Your current employees do for sure!
CFO asks Founder: “What happens if we invest in developing our people and then they leave us?
Founder: “What happens if we don’t, and they stay?”
The same study also found out that businesses are unsure about how to Access Training Resources.
Now, there’s a solution. You can retain your current employees and attract new talent through the LTU Professional Development Series for Entrepreneurs.
Here’s what we cover:
“If you don’t know where you’re going, how will you know when you get there?” This phrase may be old, but it’s true! Whether you’re the CEO of a global corporation, the manager of a 10-person department, or starting your own business, you need strategic planning skills. They’re a big asset in your personal life, too. Come to this one-day workshop to gain them!

EFFECTIVE PROBLEM SOLVING
