When entrepreneurs begin their journey, human capital is not typically the first thing their mind drifts towards. Most likely, they are trying to figure out what customers they are going to serve or sell to and what they need to make or do to create a profit.
In this webinar for leaders and entrepreneurs, CEO Rahul Singh explains how to integrate human capital development into the culture of a startup – even when it is comprised of just one or two people. Singh will show us why a company that emphasizes knowledge management, communications, organization, and training will be a leading one because it’s people will be better, faster, and more qualified than the competition.
Rahul Singh addresses:
• Communications strategies
• Leadership development through knowledge management
• Team building through real world examples while starting and growing an internet technology and software architecture firm.
• How his company’s growth has been directly tied to building up the team’s individuals into better team members.
Much of the presentation builds upon knowledge gained through experience in knowledge management internally as well as working for clients. Several ideas such as the “learning organization” and “personal mastery” are borrowed from thinkers such as Peter Senge and Peter Drucker.
