At Training for Entrepreneurs.com we join in saluting the service our nation’s veterans have provided our country. Now we salute them for their entrepreneurial efforts. They helped protect the country before, while now they support the economy by starting new businesses and hiring employees. We stand ready to support our veterans as well.

Or, ‘Maybe My Boss Designed This Online Soft Skills Training With Me in Mind’

b2ap3_thumbnail_Personal-Productivity-Thinker.jpgAll too often the end of the day comes and I can’t think of a single thing I’ve accomplished professionally or personally.  I remember working hard on multiple projects, but I can’t put my finger on anything that seems to be productive.

Productivity in the workplace takes more than technical skills

The state of Georgia’s Department of Labor recognized the value of business soft skills training by its actions today.  State Labor Commissioner Mark Butler announced that Georgia Northwestern Technical College in Rome, Georgia, has become the first post-secondary institution to offer GeorgiaBEST, an initiative that teaches workplace soft skills.

“The GeorgiaBEST program gives our adult education students the opportunity to better develop job-place skills, which will be of tremendous advantage in the future,” said Georgia Northwestern President Pete McDonald.

Chamber of Commerce Connects Training, Entrepreneurs

As president of her local chamber of commerce, Anne has seen how healthcare costs, regulations and other factors have forced those local entrepreneurs to cut their number of employees. That just makes their work days even longer. Training for entrepreneurs didn’t seem to be an option with those long hours.b2ap3_thumbnail_group_leader_ring2.png

Anne doesn’t see too many of the chamber members at networking events, after-hours programs or ribbon cuttings.

“And in this social media age, they don’t need the chamber for connections, with Facebook and LinkedIn,” she said.

She and her chamber board formed a TFE Chamber Alliance with Training for Entrepreneurs.com (TFE) to bring value to members of the chamber to help them with the bottom line.
