AFFORDABLE TRAINING FOR SMALL BUSINESS

Performance has less to do with processes, systems, and perks—and everything to do with people.
-Joseph Grenny

BUILD A TEAM OF HIGH-PERFORMANCE PLAYERS

At VitalSmarts, we’re interested in what contributes to peak performance. And based on decades of research, we’ve concluded that performance is less dependent on the strength of the brand, the brilliance of the strategy, or even (shockingly!) the number of free lunches or nap pods. In other words, performance has less to do with processes, systems, and perks—and everything to do with people.

And for a small business, this is good news. As you compete in markets dominated by industry leaders and well-funded large players, you can maintain your competitive edge by investing in your people.

The VitalSmarts suite of training courses teach the high-leverage skills to build a team of top performers—people who are both eager AND enabled to generate results.

THE COSTS OF SILENCE IN SMALL BUSINESS

While managing the challenges for small business may be unique, they’re not small. Surviving a growth culture with poise and acceleration requires the right focus on the right issues at the right time.

And yet, our research shows that when it comes to vocalizing the right issues, especially in crucial moments, people often choose to say nothing and their silence is costing you. Specifically, we found that employees waste $1,500 and an 8-hour workday for every crucial conversation they avoid.

Like large organizations, small companies need access to soft-skills training to mitigate these costs and grow their business. Getting your employees to vocalize, rather than avoid, these issues is key to your future success. To learn more about the power of dialogue, access our study below.
