From MBA Program Advisor, Sandler Training

Clint Babcock, Partner, Sandler Training Tampa Bay

Isn’t it great when we have the rare moments in our careers to be around a group of people who want only to learn and succeed! Do you recall a time in your career, or personal past, when you were a part of a selected team and how you felt to be around peers that made you want to be better? Now, imagine how the coach, team leader, boss, felt to be part of the development of that group and the feeling of genuine purpose to help someone grow and develop. This is how I felt when I was asked to support the Minority Business Accelerator program from its beginning.

At the genesis of the MBA program, I was contacted by the leadership at the Chamber to discuss how we might be able to support the selected participants. One of the great rules we have in our Sandler business is “Prescription without diagnosis is malpractice!” Meaning, we’ll perform a set of assessments of their communication skills as well as their leadership competencies so they have a clearer understanding of their strengths and areas of development. This information would then be shared with their mentors to help them throughout the entire program.
