Having grown a business from nothing, many founders find it hard to delegate – particularly in the areas they learned the hardest lessons in. But an inability to delegate contributes to an excessive workload, unnecessary pressure, and diluted focus.
Recruiting the right people and enabling them to perform can have a transformative impact on growth – allowing you to work on the business instead of in it. This means clearly defining roles and understanding the skill sets you need to recruit for attitude and develop around personal motivation. But beyond this, you need to have the fundamental tools in place which will drive performance, and the right environment to make the process simple.This roundtable will bring together founders and CEOs at different stages of the process to share their insights on how to build a cohesive team that inspires confidence, and ultimately gain perspective by letting go of the small stuff to focus on the business as a whole.
We'll be joined by Mark Sharratt from Dale Carnegie training. Mark is a business and management consultant, executive coach and motivational speaker with a background and specialism in team effectiveness having spoken with hundreds of senior executives over the years about what it takes to get more out of their teams, and how to move themselves into a position where they can comfortably let go. Mark will share with members the practical tips he has found to be most effective for the leaders he works with.
With a career that spans the IT, Telecoms and Media sectors, Mark has consulted with organisations at all stages of maturity to help them unlock hidden growth potential by fostering the core behaviours and mindsets that drive success.
This Roundtable will look to explore:
- Defining the roles and skills for a high-functioning senior team
- Aligning personal motivations with business goals
- Creating an environment where everyone thrives
- Training, learning and development solutions
- Tools and systems to help you delegate and manage performance successfully
