1 Million Cups: Victory Business Consulting

December 7, 2022 from 8:30 am to 10:00 am

From behind, 1 Million Cups crowd members applaud a presenter

This Week

When a manager does know how to do the work but focuses on tasks and statistics and not the people, it creates poor leadership. Though this isn’t intentional, this mindset creates bosses and managers, not leaders.

The solution is to teach, coach, mentor, inspire, and motivate people on becoming better leaders. Inspiring, process driven leadership makes the workplace better and more efficient for everyone!

This week, we will hear from Victory Business Consulting. Victory Business Consulting is a disabled veteran owned business whose mission is to “help leaders connect with their people and create a positive and productive work environment.” The company provides services like group coaching, keynote speaking, and 1-on-1 coaching, as well as running leadership classes.

Owner JJ Hardy gained most of his leadership experience from serving in the military. As a result, he has had the opportunity to teach, coach, mentor, and learn from hundreds of leaders all over the world. Now, he strives to share his years of learning with other businesses and entrepreneurs!

Don’t miss it. See you on Wednesday!

About 1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids

The Kauffman Foundation developed 1 Million Cups (1MC) on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee. We welcome early-stage businesses and established companies facing interesting challenges to present their companies. Typically, one or several representatives present before a panel of experts. They seek advice and then engage the audience in a question-and-answer session to encourage collaborative and honest conversations. We also feature expert speakers, founder fireside interviews, and explorations of business failures and the lessons learned!

The Cedar Rapids chapter is the sixth in the U.S., and events take place almost every Wednesday. Every event is free, and everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend!

Join us Wednesdays @ 8:30 a.m. at The Olympic Theater South Side (1202 3rd St SE #200, Cedar Rapids, IA 52401)! Each event features a presentation or conversation with a new founder, entrepreneur, business leader, subject matter expert, or creative. Find a list of upcoming events and presenters on our Calendar.

We update events as new information is available, so check the calendar often!
