Innovative Strategies for Today's Needs and Tomorrow's Challenges

Need Inspiration?  The Idea Network provides the spark!

The light bulb over your head pops on, brilliantly illuminating a path toward a future opportunity…the heart and mind races with the excitement of potential…and a passion is born! It’s a great idea…one of the best ideas ever. Now how do I make it work?

The Idea Network is a resource to help ignite the “spark” to take your idea from theory to practice while maintaining the passion. The Idea Network is an ongoing dialogue between those who have taken steps to move their idea from concept to reality and those who have a burning desire to do just that. The Idea Network will highlight individuals who have started businesses or introduced new concepts within their organization. We’ll discuss their challenges, solutions and current business perspective. And through our Q/A, we hope to share resources, establish connections, and help you get started and stay focused while transitioning through all stages of your big idea’s life cycle.

We hope you visit The Chenault Group site and visit The Idea Network often. We hope to not only deliver practical advice, but provide Idea Network participants with strategies and connections that will help bring your “big idea” to light.

Spark a conversation!  Leave your questions, thoughts and comments for The Chenault Group.

2014: A Renewed Commitment to Core Services

 Happy New Year!

Hope all is well as 2014 unfolds.  This year has already opened with many interesting projects.  I continue to provide consulting for the Middlesex County Small Business Development Center at Rutgers School of Business.  And the experience has been extremely educational.

Feedback from business owners puts this challenging business climate in perspective.  I’m getting quite a bit of real, front-line concerns from the business community.  Besides looking for financial resources, increasingly, many businesses have been seeking advice on how to safely attract, select and retain talent to grow their businesses.  So I have been busy developing learning sessions, conducting one-on-one consults and researching resources to address a wide array of Human Resources issues.

Recently, I delivered a learning session as part of an intensive Walmart/Sam’s Club sponsored Small Business Boot Camp.  It’s an excellent program that connects small businesses with vital information and support (and it’s free for businesses with five or more employees).   

Last year we experimented with taking on diverse projects that weren’t traditionally in our wheelhouse.  We met some great people, worked with some incredible organizations and learned quite a bit about ourselves as a business service provider.  Most importantly, we learned that even though we were able to deliver what was promised, the old adage rings true: “You can’t be all things to all people.”

This New Year brings us back to the essence of The Chenault Group, Inc.  Providing companies with creative and sustaining learning and development strategies that help elevate an organization’s collective IQ will be the impetus of all our actions.  I am truly excited and energized about our renewed commitment!

So, how are things shaping up with you?  Feel free to connect when you have a free moment.  I would love to find out more about you and how The Chenault Group can help you achieve your goals.
