Today kicked off the start to the CMBAM conference here in Minneapolis, MN and we hit the ground running.
Our facilitator, Vince Coultis, started off the day with teaching time management. We learned that being in this leadership position as business manager makes it vital to prioritize. Our time should be split between
- Strategic Planning (20% of our time)
- Current Business Management (20%)
- Other Managerial and Administrative tasks (20%)
- People Development (40%)
The people development aspect is so important because we, as business managers work for our staff. It is our responsibility to motivate, strength and grow our sales associates. This relationship building fosters better communication and a team aspect that leads to sales.
