New Success in Business seminar set for Sept. 23

Posted online

The Springfield Business Journal will offer its third workshop in the 1998 Success in Business Series 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Sept. 23 in the Bill Foster Room of the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce, 202 S. John Q. Hammons Pkwy.

The workshop addresses "How to Build an Effective Work Team" and will be presented by Dr. Cal LeMon, president of The Executive Edge Inc. The chamber is the sponsor of the event.

"New buildings, glossy brochures and privileged parking spaces do not produce quality ... people do," a release concerning the workshop said. "If the best asset of your organization is your staff, then getting all of those diverse people to function as a team would be a good use of time and money."

The day-long event will be an interactive workshop, the organizers said, covering how to:

?Choose people who have demonstrated team sense, or the ability to work cooperatively with others.

?Handle the Lone Ranger on a team.

?Lead a team without controlling it.

?Use a team to create solutions to long-term problems.

?Structure your organization so teamwork becomes the center of your organization.

?Train your employees to function as a team.

?Resolve team conflict with five proven methods.

?Conduct interesting and productive team meetings.

?Make more money through teams.

LeMon's Springfield-based company is a corporate training and consulting firm that trains organizations on worker motivation. LeMon has been the presenter of the Business Journal's workshops since 1996.

Refreshments will be served during the session. The cost is $99 per person, with a $10 discount for chamber members or for three or more participants from the same organization. More information is available from Larry J. Smith at 831-3238.
