WORKSHOP: How to manage your team and lead your Business

26th November 2020 | 10:00 - 11:00 Workshop
People & skills
Covid 19

Event description

Managing people is a skill, an art and a craft. If you don't manage effectively, you will spend most of your time sorting out the internal working of your team, rather than the day to day concerns of your business. Done well, however, you will have the good will and backs of your highly efficient, pro-active and motivated team that will help you run effectively and generate a profit. In this session we will look at the core areas you need to get right to manage people effectively. It’s so much more than giving someone a task to do. Come prepared to learn about yourself, your leadership and how you can lead a team that drives Business success.

Please note, this workshop will be held on Zoom. The online workshop format gives you the chance to fully participate in group discussion via video, ask questions throughout the session, learn from like minded business owners, and build connections. Our online workshops work in the same way as our standard events, with a limited number of attendees, and an expert Delivery Partner leading the session, to ensure you’re able to receive personalised support. 

What will I learn?

  • What motivates your staff and you.
  • Delegation – how to do it properly.
  • Why personality matters
  • Culture – create the conditions for your staff to thrive
  • Understand the key things to get right for your people.

Who should attend?

Business owners, Directors and anyone responsible for managing a team.

What did people think?

A lively and enjoyable session with lots to take away and implement in my Business.
Ruth was able to answer my questions, some of which were quite specific. Very knowledgeable speaker.
