Accountability. That's the lesson one business expert says small Lubbock companies should learn from the recent national scandals. Pennsylvania businessman, Tim Habbershon, was in Lubbock on Wednesday promoting an upcoming leadership development forum. The forum will address the critical issues small companies face. According to Habbershon, the national scandals have framed the business climate for everyone.
"It has made us all aware of the need for accountability in our organizations, and small business also can lack some accountability structures. You need to be effective," says Habbershon.
The family business and leadership development forum starts in October and is sponsored by Lubbock National Bank. For more information, you can call (806) 792-1000.
