About This Class

Business Management is a broad term that covers a wide range of business activities. It's also a skill that is essential for a small or large organization to thrive. 

Many small business owners believe that by simply starting a company and perhaps having some skills in sales & marketing and the like, success is virtually guaranteed. 

But nothing could be further from the truth. The truth is, Business Management is a skill that needs to be learned through training and practice, just like any other skill.

In this course, you will learn:

1. What motivates people to work (and therefore how to increase their motivation)

2. The management theories of Taylor, Herzberg, and Maslow

3. How to use financial incentives to increase motivation

4. How to use non-financial incentives to increase motivation

5. How to manage your staff to increase job satisfaction, financial results, and improve the overall environment of the workplace

No matter what type of business you manage, this course will help you improve it's results. The course is based on proven management theories and practices that are taught in top business schools throughout the United States as well as on my many years of experience in the business world.
