The Small Business Center at Haywood Community College will offer a free seminar titled, “Building Small Business Culture,” Tuesday, October 16, 6-9:00 p.m. in the College’s Regional High Technology Center room 3021.

Small business company culture is best defined as 'the way things get done around here,' and it's influenced by both deliberate choices and unintended consequences. Over time, organizational culture can evolve into enviable greatness, which can help you attract the best employees or it can dissolve into pockets of dysfunction. A great small business culture comes down to one thing:  your people. You define your values but it's up to your team to live by them. This workshop will explore ways to help your team stay connected to your goals but also to each other.

The speaker is Tonya Snider, owner of tenBiz. Her company helps businesses realize their full potential through a layered approach of training, consulting and coaching. Snider has experience in management, marketing, lending, human resources, consulting, classroom facilitation and economic development.
