You've finally worked your way to the "top" and are looking forward to managing your team, division, or department. Youíve been collecting ideas and formulating plans in your own mind so youíre ready to dig in and make things change. Only problem now is the economy. Not only do you have fewer people to manage and lead, you donít have any funds to use to make it happen. How can you be a "positive" manager when the followers donít see any good coming out of the current situation?

This monthís FREE on-line mentoring call will address ways to be a positive manager when times are tough economically. Our panelists will share ideas and experiences designed to give you encouragement and direction in moving your organization through these times in positive ways rather than waiting for things to get better so everyone is happy again.
