Seminar by Michael Reeves for Dance Studios / FREE

Saturday May 6th, 2017

Location: Meeting at Newport B - 2nd Level

Saturday May 6th 1:30pm at Emerald Ball Michael Reeves will discuss definitions of choice WORDS & how they impact our business.

As a consultant, I'm frequently asked; "How can you maintain a long/term successful business"? I respond by asking, what words define success? Although definitions of success lies in many WORDS, how we define & apply them to business is most important regarding our continuing growth. If your school is challenged by short or long-term goals, the ability to comprehend & apply each ONE may have an impact on your longevity.

**WORDS pertaining to our business and how they affect our success**

Synergy: Interaction and cooperation of two or more organizers to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.

Compromise: An agreement or settlement of dispute that is reached by each side making concessions.

Patience: A capacity to accept or tolerate delay without direct anger or getting upset.

Acceptance: The action or process of being received as adequate or suitable, typically to be admitted into a group.

To Listen: Be attentive & most importantly concentrate.

Management: The process of dealing with people.

Gratitude: A quality of being thankful & readiness to show appreciation through kindness.

Passion: A strong & barely controllable emotion.

Motivation: The reason one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.

Belief: Faith or confidence in someone or something.

Trust: Firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability or strength of someone or something.

Love: "If you LOVE what you do....you'll never work a day in your life"!

Although definitions are short, their messages are insightful & very important to your business. See you there as we discuss these powerful WORDS in detail. 👍
