    Small Business Leadership

    You've built a successful business, and you should be proud of your accomplishments!
    But every small business owner eventually runs into normal leadership challenges.

    Maybe your employees aren’t getting along, or you have a problem performer. Perhaps communication has become more difficult or it’s tough to keep everything straight. Unfortunately, unlike corporate managers, small business owners often have nowhere to turn for help in dealing with such issues.

    Through her phone coaching services, Dr. Marie McIntyre helps small business owners resolve both the challenges that come with growth and the unusual issues that arise with staff.  Marie is not only a small business owner herself, but she has also held corporate management positions and conducted leadership development workshops for managers at all levels.

    Comments from clients about their small business consultation . . .

    Florida Law Firm: "Your guidance has helped us approach our staff issues in an organized, well-thought-out way. We now have a better understanding of the employee-employer relationship.”

    Ohio Veterinary Practice: "Thank you so much for all of your valued counsel this past year. We are looking forward to a much healthier organization in the year to come.”

    Illinois Manufacturing Company: "Thank you for all your help. I have learned a lot more about myself as a manager and can now focus on projects instead of personnel situations.”

    Job Search Strategies

    The process of finding a job is a job in itself.
    Unfortunately, most applicants have not had a chance to develop these skills.

    As a manager and former HR director, Marie McIntyre knows what will impress potential employers and what will turn them off. By looking at your job search approach from the employer's point of view, she can help you become a more appealing candidate.

      Job Search Steps:  Finding the right job requires certain basic skills which many applicants have never acquired.  A successful job-seeking effort involves five specific steps:

    1. Establishing career goals which match abilities & interests
    2. Developing an effective, attention-grabbing resume
    3. Using personal & online networking strategies
    4. Creating a positive impression during interviews
    5. Making a wise decision when you receive an offer

      Career Choice:  If you are unsure of your career direction or have trouble finding work that fits you, our Career Choice Process may help. Using standard career interest and work style assessments, plus “homework” exercises and individual coaching, you can identify the type of job you prefer and the kind of place you like to work.

      Resume Review:  With our proven three-factor formula, we can sharpen your resume and make it more appealing to interviewers. If you are applying for plenty of openings, but not getting any interviews, then your resume may not be doing a good job of “selling” you to potential employers.

      Networking & Interviewing:  Through phone coaching sessions, we can help you develop effective networking strategies and sharpen your interview skills. Specific interview practice can help you present yourself in the best light and answer those difficult questions.
