Empresário canadense fala aos alunos do High School sobre como construir um negócio de sucesso
Alex Gorham, vice-presidente e co-proprietário da Gorham Real Estate, em Fredericton, New Brunswick, no Canadá, esteve presente na aula de Gestão de Negócios do 1º ano do High School. A Gorham Real Estate é uma empresa familiar de terceira geração, que fornece aluguéis de apartamentos, gerenciamento de propriedades e apartamentos mobiliados para indivíduos e famílias que vivem na área de Fredericton.
Alex compartilhou com os alunos informações sobre as operações de negócios, a história e o crescimento da empresa, os prós e contras; os sucessos e desafios que são encontrados em seu negócio. Ele também ofereceu muitas dicas sobre como construir um negócio de sucesso, como resolver problemas profissionais numa empresa familiar, como gerenciar e motivar toda a equipe.
Alex inspirou os alunos ao expressar algumas premissas que são basilares pra ele e a irmã, Amy Gorham ao gerirem juntos a empresa: investir na virtude da paciência em todas as interações com a equipe e clientes, não ter medo de falhar, ter uma mente aberta e enfatizar a importância que temos de nos responsabilizar por nossas escolhas.
Os alunos fizeram inúmeras perguntas a Alex que os ajudaram a obter mais conhecimento sobre administrar uma empresa de sucesso.
