Description

Hertfordshire ProConnect Workshops (lunch provided)

Part 1: Leading a Creative Business

What are the attributes of a successful leader of a creative business? Are people born with them, or can they be learnt? This highly interactive seminar will help identify the key characteristics of people leading high performing creative companies including understanding personality types - one's own, as well as others', the importance of defining boundaries and establishing a clarity of role, inspiring people - and achieving commitment not just compliance, aligning your team to your company's goals, reviewing progress and effective communication.

Part 2: Managing for the First Time

Becoming a manager is a crucial stepping stone in most careers but, for creatives, can be one of the most challenging. Making things and managing people can require two very different skillsets. This practical seminar will give participants insights into how to manage effectively or more effectively if you're already doing it. It will cover how to hire the right people and create a complementary team, getting off on the right foot - and the importance of inductions and orientations, agreeing and monitoring objectives, giving and receiving feedback, dealing with underperformance, achieving emotional control and how to develop and retain staff.

Both sessions are taught by Sue Ahern, a former BBC producer and now partner at Creative People. Sue specialises in coaching and helping individuals in the creative industries to realise their full potential and has worked with senior managers and business leaders at many of the UK's leading production companies.
