This month, we are covering off to often underrated topics, but essential to managing risks in your business, regardless of size.
Our first session is everything you need to know about protecting yourself in a digitally connected world, and the second session is using your emotional intelligence to lead and guide both yourself, your staff and your customers to a profitable relationship.
SESSION ONE - READY FOR YOUR NEXT STEP TOWARDS A CYBER SECURE BUSINESS?
Small businesses invest a small fortune each year promoting themselves, building their brand and servicing their customers. As each day goes by, increasing amounts of data on businesses products and services, customers, and markets is collected. While this data presents businesses with many new opportunities, new risks are also emerging that need to be managed.
Sadly, many business owners find the cost of securing their data is too high, and effective advice is difficult to come by. Often it’s only once a serious incident has occurred that the true cost of this data is realised, often only after the damage has been done.
- Are you at risk?
- What are the risks?
- Have you been hacked?
- How do you run a business after your data is gone?
- Prevention and solutions
SESSION TWO - EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE TO MANAGE BUSINESS
Would you like to learn about the two things which allow you to control any situation?
Emotional Intelligence (or EI, and not EQ!) refers to how aware we are of our own and others emotions and how they may impact our thoughts, decisions and behaviour.
Genuinely good business people distinguish themselves through a high degree of emotional intelligence observed through their everyday business transactions.
They seem to be the types of people who are there at the right time, at the right place, they somehow manifest more business, more opportunities and gain a great deal of satisfaction from being in business.
This workshop will strengthen your approach in adapting to an emotionally intelligent strategy to increase your sales target and gain more transactions with your current clients.
- Explain how to apply EI to your business activity
- Understand your personal growth and development with EI
- Measure your personal EI in your current business environment
