Benevolent Capitalism 4 Day Class by Gary Douglas, Steven & Chutisa Bowman, Dr Dain Heer in Venice, Italy

Houston, USA, May-26-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Business innovator, Gary Douglas warns, “You cannot afford to ignore the demand for benevolent business.”

International speaker and vocal advocate of Benevolent Capitalism, Mr. Douglas is concerned that many individuals and businesses are stuck in an outdated idea of capitalism, and are failing to adapt their practices to better meet the new consumer mindset:

• 96% of consumers believe it is important for companies to have good social and environmental policies. (Digital Reason)
• 33% of all consumers actively seek out and purchase goods because of responsible corporate practices. (Unilever)
• According to the Unilever CCO, “This research confirms that sustainability isn’t a nice-to-have for businesses. In fact, it has become an imperative.”

Mr. Douglas is teaming up with some of the world’s leading Benevolent Capitalism experts to bring the concept to business leaders and other individuals around the world, through a series of public and live-streamed seminars.

“Capitalism has been relegated to ‘where’s my share of the pie?’ and ‘how I can get what I need when I need it’. This is a very destructive way of manipulating capitalism”, Douglas explains. “Consumers have noticed, and are becoming more particular in their spending choices, as a result.”

“I hear a lot of people say ‘Can capitalism really be benevolent?’ but this is because of the limited points of view business has been operating from recently”, Douglas says. “When capitalism was first created back in the 1700’s, it was supposed to serve the masses; to create more for all of us. In fact, capitalism is really about how to create more money and more possibility in our life.”

“When we return to that viewpoint of more possibility and choice, it becomes a different narrative”, he adds. “Now is the time for all of us to recognize the power of capitalism and how it can be a catalyst for positive change and different possibilities.”

Contractorcoaching.com: Construction Jobs Outpaces Workers Availability

After years of trimming jobs in the wake of the Great Recession, contractors and subcontractors say the pendulum has swung the other way, and now they are looking to hire skilled workers who are no longer available in the job market.

“I said this two years ago, if we have a full-speed recovery in the construction industry, we will not have the available workers to fill the jobs,” said Henry Goudreau, CEO & Founder of HG & Associates, Inc., and http://www.contractorcoaching.com. “The only way to correct this is by a grassroots effort by contractors in offering training, or convincing high school candidates to take construction training courses. It is in our best interest to start working on this now rather than later.”

To make up the shortfall, builders are training workers themselves, recruiting from outside the area and working with local technical schools on a slate of new training programs expected to begin in the fall.

Goudreau offers a report for contractors on how to increase sales and drive more money to their bottom-line. It is free for contractors by going to http://tinyurl.com/me78v37.

Business-Building Coach Henry Goudreau Warns Contractors Of The Two Huge Hurdles The Construction Industry Has To Overcome Before A Recovery Can Take Place!

Anyone who watches the job market closely knows that the construction sector has been weak in this recovery, and is just starting to show an increase in numbers of employment. Unfortunately, there is another problem rearing its ugly head.

“Contractors have suffered deeply and carried the brunt of this recession of the last six years. In February, employment in construction changed little, just adding less than 15,000 jobs,” said business-building coach to contractors, Henry Goudreau. “However, this is merely the tip of the iceberg. There are two immense hurdles to overcome for contractors, other than finding and employing skilled craftsman,” says Goudreau. “The second killer is financing,” he warns.

While the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury rescued major banks amid the 2008 financial crisis to avert major financial chaos, the bailout didn’t help the small lenders. “Their disappearance, along with the lack of lending by the major banks, has left the contractor hanging out to dry.” explained Goudreau.

“There a two huge voids that contractors must find a way to fill,” said Goudreau. “Filling a demand for skilled craftsmen, and finding start-up funding. Both are going to hit the contractor on the side of the head, especially, if the economy picks up speed and momentum, and together, they will stifle any chance for the industry to get back on the right track out of this recession. With that said, contractors have to get their financial house in order so they can fund their work, and find skilled craftsmen. I can help them get a better handle on their business and build their financial ability, but I believe the labor level will have to be addressed at the local school or vocational tech level since so many have left the industry for greener pastures or retirement.”

About Me International takes aim at rising employee stress

It costs employers billions of dollars annually.

It’s been called a “global epidemic” by the United Nations’ International Labor Organization.

And it’s a source of miscommunication, employee conflicts, absenteeism, complacency, turnover, low morale, declining productivity and other workplace problems every day at organizations worldwide.

Employee stress is a growing threat to employers, and it’s a threat that is squarely in the sights of About Me International, a provider of workforce evaluation, employee engagement and leadership services.

Joe Kiedinger, president and CEO of About Me International, is leading the Green Bay-based company in its drive to guide organizations in overcoming the negative effects of employee stress.

To assist clients with managing this challenge, About Me International has created the About Me Card. This practical tool is designed to reveal each employee’s inner drive and preferred communication practices—two elements that according to Kiedinger are essential to their fulfillment and effectiveness at work.

Kiedinger says employers can use this tool to minimize if not eliminate misunderstandings and mistreatment, which often are a source of employee stress and can quickly lead to negative emotion and negative energy.

“The danger for employers is that negative energy, if left unchecked and allowed to spread, can have a debilitating impact on an organization’s creativity, innovation and productivity and ultimately impact its bottom line,” Kiedinger says. “Employees can use information from the About Me Card to effectively manage workplace interactions and relationships by literally changing negative emotion to positive energy,”

Kiedinger says that two of the main challenges for employers are to determine whether they wish to invest in solving employee stress and, if they do, how to go about it.

“In recent years, wellness programs have emerged as a way to help employees better manage their health,” Kiedinger says. “However, when it comes to the effectiveness of wellness programs in identifying, managing and overcoming employee stress as well as negative emotion and energy, there is no conclusive data that shows that these programs have a significant, positive and lasting impact on this workplace challenge.”

Richard DuBois, director of business development at About Me International, says the company is experiencing a strong response to the About Me Card.

“We are consistently hearing from employers of all kinds that they have seen enough of the destructiveness of negative emotion and want to address it,” DuBois says. “This tool gives them a practical solution that is generating proven results with organizations including small businesses and mid-size to large corporations, as well as non-profits including schools and health care facilities.”

About Me International has created a white paper, “Wellness and the workforce—are we missing the boat when it comes to managing employee stress?” which provides insights to employers on overcoming negative emotion and energy resulting from unresolved employee stress. The white paper can be downloaded at www.aboutmecard.com/whitepaper

About Me International provides assistance and training to employers with determining their employees’ inner drive and preferred communication practices to support employee engagement and leadership effectiveness. More information is available atwww.aboutmecard.com

Web Content Management Solutions Are Critical for Modern Day Business

Many organizations have hundreds to tens of thousands of pages of web content, which are becoming increasingly more critical to market competitiveness. Web content management solutions provide an efficient and effective means to make the problem of managing all of an organizations web material far more tractable.

Drupal content management systems (CMS) are open source solutions for addressing the problem of managing web content. Among the many reasons for Drupal’s success, its ability to alleviate technical staff members through the powerful and easy to use platform and its ability to integrate with pre-existing content management systems has made it a popular choice.

As a result, it can be challenging to ensure that you are making the right selection for your organization.

For some organizations, a proprietary, out-of-the-box solution, or an out-of-the-box open source solution can work just fine. Other organizations may require varying degrees of tailoring. In either case, a web content management solutions consultant is highly recommended.

With all of these benefits, Drupal content management systems are a compelling choice.

The selection, migration, and implementation of the various web content management solutions is far less risky with the help of a qualified content management consultant.

Challenges And Solutions In Selecting A Digital Asset Management System

Some organizations’ success relies on the support of a network of agencies and affiliates that are distributed around the world, which are responsible for promoting the products and services of that organization. The challenges that arise are many and may include the cataloging of photography and video as well as the quality assurance of consistent company branding strategies.

A digital asset management system may help in centralizing marketing efforts; however, new capabilities are often required in order to support growth. The growth may sustain a broader range of assets as well as increased flexibility for users.

A recommended course of action is to develop a content management system strategy that takes into consideration organizational needs and then matches the requirements with the appropriate vendor applications available. The concept is simple enough; however, the current state of digital asset management system products includes highly technical descriptions that can be difficult to put into layman’s terms or compare appropriately among vendors.

To compound the problem, it can be difficult to reduce the influence of vendor salesmanship when selecting a digital asset management package. As a result, several organizations choose to use a content management system consultant in order to more appropriately discern the right direction for their business. The consultant essentially bridges the gap between the vendor and the customer.

The greater the depth and breadth of knowledge of the content management consultant; including experience with web content management systems, multi-channel systems, work flow management systems, and digital asset management systems, the greater the opportunity is for the final product to meet or exceed the expectations of the organization.

The ultimate digital asset management strategy appropriately includes a request for proposal (RFP) process that is somewhat iterative. Oftentimes, proposals f r o m vendors use vendor-specific, verbose, and very technical descriptions of their products. It is up to the content management system consultant to assimilate the information, place it into layman’s terms, and normalize it for a more appropriate comparison.

This may entail additional clarification f r o m vendors to be presented in a normalized and summarized compilation for the most appropriate selection. Once the vendor finalists are distilled down, a choice can be made or a meeting can be held in order for the vendors to distinguish their products f r o m their competitors. The process helps to find the right vendor choice and assists in the determination of a more focused strategy.

Advantage in the marketplace. For the past 10 years, it has helped businesses in a wide-range of industries find the right digital asset management for them. DPCI has the professional and technical requirements necessary for consulting, providing, tailoring and completely implementing successful digital asset management system.

New Sales Training and Sales Coaching Programs By eXubrio

eXubrio Group LLC CEO Paul McAfee announced today that his company has introduced new sales training and sales coaching programs. The programs teach business-to-business sales people how to match customer needs with their products and services. This process also is called consultative selling or needs-based selling.

Not every sale requires a needs-based approach. Some sales are transactional, such as the purchase of a candy bar at the grocery store checkout line. However, many sales situations require consultation with the buyer to determine the right product or service. eXubrio Group’s new sales training program prepares sales people to approach a consultative sale as a relaxed interview process that is enjoyable for both the seller and the prospect.

The properly trained sales person’s goal is to understand the prospect’s needs, and to match appropriate products or services with those needs. This is vastly different from hard sell – or pushy – sales processes taught by other training organizations. An eXubrio Group trained sales person will build rapport, and a trust relationship, with the prospect. The salesperson will ask appropriate questions to understand the prospect’s needs. The ideal conclusion of a successful needs-based sales cycle will hear the prospect explain why he or she wants to purchase the sales person’s product or service.

eXubrio Group sales training and sales coaching services are available immediately. Companies wishing to participate can arrange for in-house sales training and coaching programs. In early 2010, eXubrio Group will begin offering offsite training workshops for companies with small sales forces.

eXubrio Group’s sales training is closely aligned with the business and marketing strategy processes used nationally by eXubrio Group. These include the Delivering Profitable Value methodology developed and practiced by Michael Lanning’s DPV Group LLC. eXubrio Group also uses its unique customer adoption model that identifies the marketing and sales steps through which every customer passes.

eXubrio Group sales training teaches sales people how to recognize the positive business experiences a prospect will receive if they purchase from the sales person. The program helps the sales person recognize where the prospect is in the buying process. Sales people learn how to help the prospect move through the steps to purchase. This integration of a marketing strategy with the sales process differentiates eXubrio Group’s training from others’ training. eXubrio Group will customize and personalize in-house training and coaching programs for each of its clients.
