The Laurence A. Baiada Institute for Entrepreneurship Presents Understanding and Navigating Your Business Growing Pains A Seminar In Entrepreneurial Excellence July 17, 2013 8:30 a.m. - Noon (Continental breakfast available at 8:15 a.m.) Laurence A. Baiada Institute for Entrepreneurship 3225 Arch Street, Ground Floor Drexel University's Main Campus You don’t need to make all your own mistakes in order to learn from them! Whether you are the leader of a growing enterprise or a growing department within an enterprise, this seminar is designed to help you understand and navigate the challenges associated with your current stage of growth and operational complexity. There are critical challenges that need to be addressed at each of the seven stages of growth. Not addressing the issues at the right stage will stunt your growth, cause re-work or worse - cause business failure. The fastest way to grow successfully is by piggybacking on the experiences of others who have already spent years learning how to succeed. Join us to explore these questions and assess for yourself: • Which of the challenges you are experiencing are “normal”, based on your current stage of growth? And which ones are unique? • How can you overcome these challenges and turn your company growth into sustainable growth? • Is your leadership style conducive to this stage of growth? • Do you have the right ratio of builders and protectors in your group?
