Managing People 30th May, 10:00 to 16:00
Enterprises that are making the transition from start up to growth and sustainability traditionally undergo major periods of turbulence.
The turbulence can be chaotic and upsetting and if not handled properly can lead to a rapid demise of the enterprise.
Almost all of the turbulence can be pinpointed as poor management of people. The lack of management skills is regarded as the greatest enterprise weakness in the UK. The objectives of the Managing People workshop is to guide founders and/or managers in developing the skills to develop their management skills particularly in ways to managing people so that their enterprises grow into successful and sustainable businesses.
