As a business owner, you probably know that having a good manager is critical. But what skills, abilities, and talent do managers of self storage facilities need to have to be successful?

The Texas Self Storage Association is teaming up with the Georgia Self Storage Association to present a webinar for motivating and developing managers with ‘monster.’

What is monster performance? If a manager consistently meets and exceeds sales and marketing goals, he or she is a monster performer. If your manager has a filed tucked away in a filing draw stuffed to overflowing with customers’ testimonial, you have a monster performer. If your manager hits all budgeting targets, what do you have?  You’re right. A monster performing manager.

What if you feel that you don’t have a manager that has stellar performance?
What can you do to motivate to improve? How do you help your manager employ different technics that ensure success as a manager that then translates into a bigger cash flow into your budget?
