In this month’s newsletter, I’m hopeful that you find some knowledge nuggets that will bring additional wins to your business. I’ve included: an update on the SBA’s EIDL program; a contest from The UPS Store where your small business can win up to $25,000; and an article on how to boost employee morale without costing you anything. I’ve always said that your employees are your greatest asset not listed on your balance sheet, so make sure you are taking care of them. We all know that the labor pool is a challenge right now, so let’s find ways to keep the talent we have!

We spend a lot of time talking, thinking and working on ways to improve our leadership skills.  I found a great article in the Harvard Business Review that focuses on leading through an era of exponential change.  If anything can be said for 2020, it is that it has been wrought with changes as we’ve never seen them before.  I hope the core content of this article is helpful to you as we make our way to the end of the pandemic.

As we approach Thanksgiving in a very challenging year, my hope is that you will find a few things for which to be grateful.  Personally, I am thankful for each of you (clients, friends, business connections).  Each of you has had some impact on me and helped shape me into the person I am today.  Thank you.

If you are working in the capacity of supervising others, please remember that you are helping to shape them.  You need to continue to help them grow.  One of the best ways to do this is through delegation.  They will learn new tasks, gain more confidence and become a greater asset to your organization.  I hope you all enjoy this month’s article on the topic.
