Management Trainer Steve Rudolph Aims to Serve Community with Workshop Series
After five years of offering specialized workshops for the Asheville Independent Restaurant Association, executive coach Steve Rudolph is launching a workshop series designed to serve the needs of the expanding business community of Asheville. Three workshops are planned for the coming months with topics including providing negative feedback to a valued employee and B2B sales.
“Business owners strive to retain great talent,” Rudolph says. “But the side effect of promoting from within is the occasional elevation of an otherwise stellar employee outside of their comfort zone. What makes a great individual producer does not make a great manager. That’s why I’ve dedicated my life to supporting businesses that support their employees.”
The first workshop is Tuesday, March 22 and focuses on core workplace challenges like communicating culture, dealing with negative employees, and inspiring performance.
Workshop two takes place Thursday, April 19th and teaches core business-to-business sales skills including prospecting, planning, and how to develop a sales process.
The final workshop in this series occurs Thursday, May 24 and is all about flexibility. In this workshop, Steve will teach the difference between a workplace manager, and a workplace coach and when to don each role. He will also teach how to shift leadership styles to meet the needs of his employees.
All workshops occur from 9-2 at the Goodwill Job Training center on Patton and will include lunch.
