  • Summary

    An informal poll of ranch and business managers across the US identifies their #1 challenge – communication and managing people. Ranch resources do not self-manage, so managing employees is certainly as important as the stewarding of animal and natural resources. This lectureship offers tips and coaching for managers on topics like recruiting, hiring, retaining, and evaluating talented employees. Participants will assemble a preferred employer skill-set that enables leading employees to be productive team members, experience personal growth, and accomplish business goals.
