Imagine the benefits to be gained from a pool of employees who act as if they own the business: greater motivation, increased productivity, and a supercharged desire to succeed. As a young entrepreneur who turned a small PR business into a highly successful, international communications firm, Jennifer Prosek has experienced firsthand the power of instilling an “owner’s mindset” in every employee.
With innovation driving the new economy, your company’s people have never been more important. But old management models don’t truly encourage the entrepreneurial thinking needed for success. In Army of Entrepreneurs, Prosek presents an easy-to-follow action plan any company—large or small—can use to build a workforce dedicated to generating new business, creating breakthrough products and services, and sustaining growth.
With your own Army of Entrepreneurs™, every employee becomes a powerful force for growth within the organization. Filled with inspiring examples, this book shows you how to:
• Motivate, train, and reward your employees
• Provide everyone from interns to executives with the skills and support they need
• Evaluate and refresh the program over time for continuous results
• Initiate a simple but effective Commission for Life™ incentive program that gets every member of the team actively involved in generating new business
• Develop internal training programs that foster an owner’s perspective, with a focus on how the business works, where the profits come from, and how to identify new opportunities
Don’t go it alone. This clear, replicable roadmap is an invaluable guide for any business owner or manager. Turn to Army of Entrepreneurs to build your company into a thriving, recession-resistant organization.
