Hawk’s address topic will be “Owners vs. Renters.” Hawks website, explains, “Frequently in organizations, people use the phrase “do you own the vision”? Or say things like “we own our decisions.” As an owner of several residential investment properties, Greg noticed a significant difference between someone who owns and someone who rents. There are several parallels in the workplace. Understanding those differences, helps you identify who truly is an Owner. Also, identifying Renters and knowing how to convert them is vital for building strong teams and long term employees. Hawks will focus on understanding the five distinct differences between an Owner and a Renter; discovering the process of converting Renters to Owners and realizing the way to hire Owners. “
