Learn valuable operational best practices

Owners of plumbing, heating, cooling, and electrical contracting firms are invited to join Nexstar Network in Phoenix, AZ, March 15-17 as Nexstar prepares you to hire and manage your senior leadership team.

The event, which is part of Nexstar's Owners' Spotlight Series, is open to all contractors, not only those who are Nexstar members.

Are you currently serving as general manager? Are you ready to hire a general manager? Would you like more training for the one you have? Nexstar will share tangible strategies and tips for molding the right person into this key position in your company.

The program is designed to:
• Prepare owners to hire and manage the senior leadership team.
• Teach owners to onboard and train a GM on high impact operating systems.
• Teach owners how to hire for their weaknesses.
• Teach GMs to coach, train and align themselves with the owner’s vision and mission. If you're not ready to hire a general manager now, you'll learn valuable operational best practices that will propel your company today.

Steve Farber, senior-level leadership coach and president of Extreme Leadership Inc., will motivate and challenge us to look at leadership as an extreme act — taking a radical leap beyond the title to achieve greatness.

Registration Deadline: March 1st

Nexstar is a business-development and best practices organization delivering comprehensive business training, systems and support to independent home service plumbing, heating and air conditioning professionals across the continent.

Jeff Belk, a member and owner of Plumbline Services in Denver, CO, says, “Making the move to hire a general manager propelled my company further, faster. I empowered my GM to take my business and run it with a higher sense of responsibility. In the past, everything went through me. When I removed myself from the equation, he had to take the responsibility of making decisions and moving things forward. He used to say, 'your business' and now he says, 'our business' with great pride.”

Typically for members only, Nexstar will open the doors at Owners’ Spotlight Series to contractors who want to improve their leadership skills while interacting with peer contractors who will openly share successful business strategies and best practices.
