Grow & Change Workshop Programme

Training for Business Leaders in Essex

Scheduled for April – June 2017

This 4-Step Grow & Change Workshop Programme is designed to support growing businesses that will benefit from boosting the leadership, change management and other personal and business development skills that will assist them in moving their businesses forward.

Although each of the four workshops in the Grow & Change Workshop Programme can be attended as a stand-alone session, the workshops have been designed to work together to provide a comprehensive set of skills that will be of real benefit to those who have a role to play in managing and developing growing businesses.

  • Understanding the difference between operational management and strategic leadership.
  • Key leadership skills for growing businesses.
