"The best time to support small businesses is always today."
Gisele Barreto Fetterman

In 2019, the US Small Business Administration released a report showing that small businesses, those companies with fewer than 500 employees, in the United States produced 44% of all economic activity in the country. That same year, small businesses also provided 2/3rd of all employment within the US. After the pandemic in 2021, small businesses created 5.5 million jobs, making a huge impact on our overall economic recovery (Treece, 2023). Small businesses are a vital part of our economy and foster healthy competition for our market.

A New Year – Productive and Effective Board Retreats

If you participate on a board of directors, you know that you have multiple obligations to the organization and to the community. You work hard to lend your skills and expertise in civic leadership. Perhaps you are looking to motivate your group for the New Year, which is right around the corner.

Navigating Task Conflict as You Lead the Way

When you actually have a moderate amount of task conflict, then decision making and performance outcomes may improve in your teams and in your organization. Unhealthy levels of conflict can lead to a variety of dysfunctions, which no one wants. As with many things in life, it’s about achieving a healthy balance.

Evaluating Your Efforts. Is your Strategic Plan on Target?

A solid strategic plan is a great tool that will help for-profit and nonprofit leaders optimize their performance and results, and ultimately the bottom line. Resources are always limited. All leaders need to be especially careful when making financial decisions. When done well this ensures maximum and most efficient impact for each dollar spent.
