In "How to Find, Hire, Train, Retain, and Fire Coaches and Staff," Justin will focus on your coaching team, from finding your coaches all the way to how to let a coach go. He will focus on 5 key points: Finding coaches, hiring practices for bringing new coaches on board, training your new coaches to begin teaching classes, retaining your coaches for the long term, and in the events where necessary, how to terminate coaches. These five primary areas of interest will be broken into two sections - business legal and culture.
