International Business Coach Teaches How to Make Big Business Decisions
Big business decisions can make or break a business if not properly assessed and understood. Thrive15 business coach and international entrepreneur, Jack Nadel, has had years of experience dealing with large business transactions and offers his advice in a training on Thrive15.com.
The training, entitled Making Big Business Decisions: Do your Own Research, dives into why it is important to conduct research personally in order to know the most accurate information and details. Nadel shares examples of not doing his own research, and the consequences for not following through with that, as well as times where he had in-fact done his own research and avoided disastrous decisions. In one example, Nadel had delegated research to an employee at his company, Jack Nadel International. The employee pushed to go to a trade show in Texas, but the research numbers provided, which were used to back the employee’s position on the matter, did not match up to the actual numbers for the exhibition. Nadel conducted his own research and found the numbers he was provided were inaccurate and called off the trade show exhibition.
Nadel’s business experience has helped him understand making business decisions better than most people and his partnership with Thrive15.com allows him to share his experiences and wisdom with a broad audience of business owners, entrepreneurs, and business professionals. Over the years, Nadel has been able to found, acquire, and operate more than a dozen companies and has helped him to develop his own method for reducing risk and improving return on investment for business owners called “The Nadel Method.” The Nadel Method incorporates a simple five-step process based on proven business principles for success.
Nadel has written several popular business books. His book The Evolution of an Entrepreneur, received several awards including five Global EBook Awards and three Gold Awards for BEST in Business, Leadership, and Careers/Employment. Although Nadel claims he is retired, he is still a passionate advocate for creating a new generation of successful business leaders and entrepreneurs.
Thrive15.com Business Coach Teaches How to Hire Like Disney World
ORLANDO, FL – Hiring is a challenge for any business, including the self-proclaimed “happiest place on earth.” Thrive15.com has partnered with the former Executive Vice President of Operations for Walt Disney World® Resort, Lee Cockerell. Cockerell, who once managed over 40,000 cast members and was responsible for 20 resort hotels, four theme parks, two water parks, an entertainment and shopping village, and the ESPN Sports and Recreation Complex, shares his experience in his training, Learning To Hire Like Disney World With Lee Cockerell, on Thrive15.com.
In his training, business coach Cockerell shares his methods for hiring, the same he used while at Disney. One of the biggest factors that Cockerell mentions is the desire to hire people for the majority of positions based on their personality, not their skills. As Cockerell explains, “I can train someone with passion how to do a job. I can’t teach someone who knows how to do the job to be passionate.” He goes on to say that at Disney, they did not tolerate people with bad attitudes. Another move Cockerell mentions in the training is to make sure that everyone has an “uplifting” first day. According to Cockerell, it is important in that first day to cast the vision of the company and to help the new hire see how they will play a part of creating the experience.
Cockerell, whose career includes 17 years with Hilton Hotels and Marriott Corporation, is a master at creating magical experiences. Cockerell has written three bestselling books, Time Management Magic, The Customer Rules: The 39 Essential Rules for Delivering Sensational Service, and Creating Magic: 10 Common Sense Leadership Strategies from a Life at Disney, each outlining aspects to building a successful business from his experiences. Additionally, Cockerell has been chosen as the speaker of choice for a number of world-class organizations including Walt Disney World®, Wal-Mart, and Luxottica.
