Guest Speaker - Rick Berard

Rick Berard is a Senior Consultant at Collaboration Business Consulting. Rick’s extensive background in building sustainable teams for businesses progressing through the rapid growth stage is his calling card. Entrepreneurs have the big ideas, but may not always have the skill set to manage explosive growth. Rick has the ability to coach and train managers to handle their growing teams by creating and implementing goals and ensuring the company as a whole is heading in the right strategic direction.


Information About the Topic -  As companies move through the business lifecycle, the leadership structure shifts from the leader as sole decision maker to a collaborative decision-making approach utilizing the skills of managers. Leaders may struggle as they give up some control, but when the right managers are trained to make right decisions, the company can grow and achieve results.  Learn the necessary skills and best practices to create an effective and results-oriented management team.
