Effective Leadership: Understanding What It Takes facilitated by Michael Mobley, MBA
There is no universally accepted definition of leadership, but most of us have some perspective of effective leadership and, therefore, we feel we know it when we see it. However, given the critical importance of leadership for growth, profitability and value creation in a business, a mere “perspective” can be insufficient for the development of leadership skills for business owners and their staffs.

Small business literature and academic studies sound alarms for prospective entrepreneurs, warning them of the high percentage of failures of business start-ups. Less publicized is the high per capita failure rate of small businesses in the growth phase. While there is a myriad of reasons for this failure, the lack of effective leadership is, arguably, number one on that list. Academic institutions, government entities and other organizations offer numerous training programs for business owners and their employees to enhance their technical skills. But certain critical “soft skills” like leadership are ignored to the ultimate detriment of their served markets.
This two-day workshop is designed to provide business owners and their staffs a primer on the importance of effective leadership to the growth, profitability and value creation for their businesses in the areas of:
- Effective Communication
