Develop Your Army of Entrepreneurs to Grow Your Business

Employee Emeritus Employee Emeritus ‎07-26-2011 08:42 AM

VZ Webinar Series ICON.jpgGuest post from Jennifer Prosek, CEO of CJP Communications and the author of Army of Entrepreneurs™: Create an Engaged and Empowered Workforce for Exceptional Business Growth. July’s featured author in the Verizon Author Series.  You can follow her on Twitter and Facebook.


In short, an ‘army of entrepreneurs’ is an internal force of committed, creative employees. It is also a management and leadership model that enables a business to grow and prosper in a fast-changing world.


Building an “army” entails empowering every employee to use his or her own resources and initiative to help the business succeed. Each person develops an “owner’s mindset” and becomes a powerful force for growth within the organization.


The timing for this strategy could not be more critical. The strongest force for growth in the coming years will be individual and collective intellectual capital and continuous innovation. In a fast-changing, competitive business world, employees must be looking around corners and anticipating change. To be successful, every employee must develop an “owner’s mindset” and treat the business like it’s their own.


In tomorrow’s live webcast I will teach business owners how to create their own “Army of Entrepreneurs.”
