Listening to Your Business Program

Listening to Your Business is a one-day workshop that is part of FastTrac, a nationally recognized business training program for entrepreneurs and small business owners.

This workshop will help you determine where you are in your business, where you want to be in three years and what steps you need to take in order to reach your goal. The day will consist of hands-on activities that will help you zero in on your business.

Listening to Your Business will help you to Take Charge of Your Business
in four steps:

  • Step 1: Three-year vision
    Determine where you are and where you want to be in three years
  • Step 2: Business life cycle and transitions
    Determine what stage you are at and what transitions need to be made
  • Step 3: Planning tools and competencies
    Determine planning tools that you can use for analysis, communication, strategic direction and control
  • Step 4: Take action!
    Determine tactics and make a plan to reach your goal.

Specifically designed for entrepreneurs, this workshop gets down to business immediately by asking you "What do you really want from your business". When you walk out the door, you will have a Transition Plan developed through guided, thoughtful analysis.
