Event description

Description

In this session, we will bring together both Founders and their Senior Directors to focus on the Entrepreneur – Director relationship and how to get the best from each other.

In this interactive session, both parties will learn how to harnesses the key for successful business relationships which will inevitably make the leadership more effective and help take your business to the next level.

Why should this be of interest?
The skills and mindset required to be an entrepreneur are not the same as those required to be an MD or senior leader of an SME- it’s the power of the 2 which will ultimately drive business success and growth.

This half day workshop outlines the key skills, mindset and techniques to harness and leverage both disciplines to drive business growth.

What will you gain, learn and explore?
• Know yourself: The more you know about your own thinking, working and communication preferences as well as your strengths, habits and ‘blind spots’, the easier it will be to form an effective working relationship with those you work with.
• The Collaboration Contract: Beyond the formalities of role descriptions and goals/objectives needs to be an agreement on what both parties want from the relationship; the dividing lines of responsibility and accountability; what each party expects from each other and where the boundaries of strategy, operations and people management reside.
• Long-term vision vs managing for today: How do you agree what the real priorities are- The important vs the urgent tasks and the essential to strategy vs nice to have.
