John Abrams Returns to Yestermorrow in 2008

After last year's "Thinking Like a Cathedral Builder" workshop with John Abrams from the South Mountain Company attracted nearly 30 students, we were thrilled to have him back on the schedule for 2008 to present another weekend workshop, this year entitled "Redefining Small Business". In John's words, this course is "a radical business primer full of stories, activities, and information about making everyday business a thrilling adventure" which covers everything from designing and building a business to issues of philosophy and practice, and will tackle employee ownership, growth issues, personnel issues, benefits, community service, multiple bottom line thinking, and long term business planning and succession.
