- MAY 23: "Ten traits the best leaders have in common"
A common reason why businesses fail to realize their potential seems to stem from a lack of clarity in expectations, which is a basic need. Additionally, almost every one of us in business can remember that one special manager in their career who exemplifies the norm, who commanded our trust, and treated us with respect, even in the toughest of business crises. In this discussion, we will explore at least 10 traits that the best leaders have in common, that help hedge these challenges.
No Membership Fees or Dues...
Unlike most other business organizations, ISBOG does not have any membership fees or dues. We recognize that small businesses are usually operating on a limited budget and may not be able to join other organizations that request membership fees. So, rather than your checkbook, all we ask you to bring to meetings are your ideas, your questions, your business sense and your willingness to share your small business experience.
Send us a quick Email and let us know you'll be stopping into a chapter meeting. We'll be glad to meet you.
If you have any questions, please contact Amy Steele by Email. You are welcome to bring your business cards and company literature to share with the group.
