What to expect from the seminar

Are you a business owner with three or more employees? Do you suffer from growing pains? Do you find yourself thinking:

  • “Why does everything end up on my desk?”
  • “How can I get people to do what’s needed?”
  • “Why am I spending all my time firefighting?”
  • “Why can I never find the time to do the important stuff?”

This seminar is for you!

You will be given the opportunity to work out your own answers to these questions and will leave with materials and insights that will enable you 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 what’s stopping you from growing.
  • You’ll discover that you don’t have to grow your organisation and which stage you are best suited to managing. 
  • You might find out that growing your business is not the best option for you!

Key Contents

  • Where your business has got to on its journey.
  • How suited you and your management style are to the stage it’s at.
  • Clear roles and accountabilities so people don’t tread on each other’s toes.
  • Simple performance management so people do what’s needed and know when they’ve succeeded.
  • Managing people as professionals, not as mates.
  • Recruiting the kinds of people your organisation needs rather than who you think will ‘fit’.
  • What to do with people who can’t keep up.
  • Pitfalls you might meet and how to handle them.
