 Remember the 80's?  I sure do. The good 'ol days, when not everyone received a trophy for participation, we played outside with the kids in our neighborhood, we were not overscheduled and parents were not just seen as ATM’s and taxis.

What I hear today from Solo-Preneurs and MBOs (Micro Business Owners) when it comes to hiring in today's market, is they cannot attract and keep good, hard working and talented employees.  They remember the days when they were working their way up the ladder;. they went to work on time, did what they were told to do, and paid their dues before being promoted.

I hear it all the time; these business owners just want it to be like it was back then.

Their businesses are busy and growing faster than they can staff it.  It keeps them up at night. They are frazzled, empty, angry, overworked, and at a loss of what to do. Often what they have tried has failed.  They remember the days when they worked. They want it to be like then.


News Flash:
(and we know this is the way it is, it is just not the way we WANT…)

It is not the 1980s.  Today's employee market is not like it was when we were young and working.  Millennials and today's workforce are here, and they are changing the way organizations hire, manage, train, and staff...and it is not their fault.  Wishing it was like the old days, is not the answer. It is just not today's reality anymore.

If you are looking for some insight on how hire and keep Top ‘A’ Talent, then perhaps it’s time to learn some new tactics and tricks of the trade;  actual methods to deploy and practice, then read on, this workshop, just may be right for you.

I have been asked by the people I coach, the workshops I run, and my clients, if I could run a workshop on how to hire and keep the right talent for their business.  I do have some insights, tips and tactics, that I believe can truly help. I want to share them with you.

Here's the thing, it is not them, it is us.  And here is the good news, we are the ones that can adapt and evolve ourselves to have the business and life we really want- and have it right now.

We Will Learn:

How to Attract the Right Talent

How to Keep the Right Talent

How to Build a Purpose for your Business - (That both you and your staff can get behind)

What is necessary to Orient and Train your staff

What is necessary to Lead them.

You will have the Time and Space to do the work right there at the workshop.

No worrying about having a notebook filled with lots of good ideas that you will never get to.  Hey, I know I used to do that too after a workshop or convention. Lots of great ideas, never making time to implement them.

You will be infused with Energy to get to it. I am known for giving tools for bridging the gap of wanting it and thinking of it to executing it.  The work we will do over the two days is designed to examine and remove the barriers that stand in your way.

I am not interested in you just learning some concept.  I am interested in you actually getting to the work, and I have the tools, energy, and methods to do just that.

Be part of the community of Solo-Preneurs and MBOs that are in the same boat just like you when it comes to hires.  Hear their stories and share your own with them.

Join us.

Here are what a few people said from my last workshop:

This workshop is unlike any other workshop I’ve ever attended. There’s less focus on “goal setting” in the traditional “get busy” mindset, and more of a general strategy to make them most of your time.
Plus he’s not afraid to redirect your thought process – in a hilarious, compassionate, eye-opening manner.
— Kara Dello Russo- Kara’s Pet Care, LLC Featured Entrepreneur who started less than two years ago a Mobile Pet Care Service and now serves over 100 unique clients and employees five people full time.
A productive and unique workshop for business people. Raef’s approach is calming and reflective. As a business owner I carry myself in a calm manner, however, the internal stress (of business ownership) needs addressing at times. This is what Raef’s workshop does. I recommend it highly.
— Dean Clegg Clegg Sound Associates, LLC & Wireless that Works, LLC- Clegg Sound, serving the Seacoast area in providing large venues, such as theatres, music halls, auditoriums, and outside staging with sound and lighting needs for over 15 years and with four employees.
I have been working with Raef for a couple of years now. Raef has taught me a lot. He is creative, fun and insightful. Together we have accomplished a lot. He is great at opening the door to new relationships.
— James Materkowski- The Green Cocoon, Inc.
Raef brings energy & insight into his business coaching & the 1-Day seminar was a great chance to see him put those attributes to work in a broader sense.
— Katie Vandervalk MS, CCC/SLP- Through the Trees, LLC
I loved this workshop. It was well planned and well thought of. The non-traditional format was excellent and really made me think and feel outside the box. I will definitely sign up for another one, and I’m bringing people with me.
