Helping Leaders Get Better
It’s often said that the first commandment of leadership is “only do what only you can do”.
But how? Juggling the multiple demands of running a business is relentless. You find that you need to be a generalist and an expert, a colleague and a boss, a sceptic and an enthusiast, a leader and a manager.
The business landscape is changing with relentless speed, which means your adaptability is your most important attribute, but where do you prioritise?
When you are so busy running your company how do you find the time to step back and be objective? Not just as a one-off, but repeatedly? When can you properly assess and predict your market’s trajectory? And where’s the time to make clear minded decisions and set direction? It can’t all be done in the shower in the morning or at night when you should be sleeping.
And even if you can be ruthless enough with your time to step away, reflect, and focus your attention on your strategy and tactics, how do you move that strategy in to action whilst still leading the business on a daily basis? How do you access the tools and techniques that will increase the likelihood of success?
Who is supporting you, who challenges your thinking? How do you access skills outside your circle without it costing you the earth?
It is aimed specifically at leaders in the independent sector struggling to access affordable expert guidance and support that will make a material difference to the success of their enterprise. It is led by local entrepreneur and FTSE100 veteran, Brian Jones and is actively supported and endorsed by the Peterborough and Cambridge offices of Baldwins (formerly Rawlinsons) and the Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce.
