Event description

Description

Do you know where your business has got to on its journey? How suited are you and your management style to the stage it’s at? What are the pitfalls you are likely to meet and how should you handle them?

Seminar members will be given the opportunity to work out their own answers to these questions and will leave with materials and insights that will enable them to take the first steps to building and leading a brilliant organisation.

Results you can Expect

  • You’ll be able to identify which stage your business is at.
  • You will know the key indicators that will signal if your business is being hampered from growing.
  • You’ll discover that you don’t have to grow your organisation; you might be best suited to stopping at the first stage or settling into the second stage.
  • In fact, growing your business might not be the best option for you.

Key Contents Covered

  • Impact on your choice of management style as the business grows – and therefore the impact on you. How much can you change your natural preferred style?
  • The need for more emphasis on structure / processes / procedures as the organisation grows.
  • Clarification of roles and accountabilities, so that accountabilities are unique to each role and not built around people’s preferences and skills as in the early stages.
  • The importance of creating a straightforward goal setting and performance management process – but with a light touch, not imported wholesale from a larger organisation.
  • The role of ‘professional’ management skills rather than ‘social’ skills in managing people – a real issue in professional services firms, where so much depends on ‘social’ relationships.
  • Moving away from recruiting in one’s own image to looking at what the organisation needs, vs what kinds of people you or your team think will ‘fit’.
  • What to do with people who can’t keep up as growth accelerates.
