DAYTON – Women in Business Networking (WiBN), a program of Better Business Bureau serving Dayton/Miami Valley, is hosting a Lunch N Learn in April titled Intentional Growth on Tuesday, April 25. Registration opens at 11:30 a.m. Lunch begins at 11:45 and the program is from noon to 1 p.m. This event is located at the NCR Country Club in Kettering. The cost is $25 for WiBN members and BBB accredited businesses/charities, and $35 for all others.
During this event, Monica Kuhns, a certified John C. Maxwell coach, speaker and trainer, will share her intentional growth tips. She speaks from experience as she’s put them to use herself. She knows success doesn’t happen by accident; it happens by intention.
In 2011, Kuhns hit a breaking point. She was in a place so many small business owners find themselves: wildly overworked, severely underpaid and desperately seeking relief from being owned by her business. As a former nurse with her own home care company for almost 15 years, she was drowning in tasks, distracted by team drama and dealing with employee disengagement. She was doubting her ability to be an effective leader and went searching for help. It was then that she encountered her mentor, John Maxwell, and when she started learning and applying his Maxwell Leadership Principles, she experienced a complete turnaround, as did her business. Today, she shows other small business owners how to maximize their leadership capacity and increase the effectiveness of their team so they can own their business without their business owning them.
Sheri Sword, WiBN’s executive director, says, “With WiBN’s theme this year being ‘Grow Stretch Thrive’, this is the perfect event for local businesswomen. We can’t stay stagnate. We have to always stretch ourselves and be intentional about growing in our personal and professional lives. This speaker is going to help us lay the plans to do just that whether you’re a business owner or work within a business. Be sure to join us.”
