RD2P - Positioning Your Business: Strength Building for Beinga Successful Businessperson

Presented by Bill Park, MpowerU; Dr. Byron Bissell, MpowerU

This workshop is for those collision repair specialist business owners/managers who understand that being a successful businessperson is a great deal more than owning or managing a shop or shops and who desire to strengthen their businessperson skills. Participants will be introduced to a unique perspective of what a businessperson is, which has been derived from schema theory by the presenters. Research has consistently shown that success in business is somewhere between 60 and 80% luck, but as I used to tell my students, “You darn well better be really good at the 40 to 20% that is dependent on your business skills.” The first step in strength building your business skills is to realize and know that there are five cognitive roles that you use to be a businessperson, which are distinct from being an owner or a manager. Once you know what the cognitive roles of a businessperson are you then can make a self-analysis to determine your strengths and which of the roles you need to beef up in order to achieve your business goals. In sum the purpose of this workshop is provide the participants with the opportunity to strengthen their ability to effectively fulfill their cognitive role as a businessperson and achieve their long-term wealth creation goals.
