Leading ourselves is all about practising the behaviours and values we feel most passionate about in our business. This course is designed to help us understand how to transform our leadership in 2020.

Taking time out of a busy working week is not something to do lightly but by taking a day to consider how to lead yourself and your colleagues can make the difference from surviving to thriving.

This series makes pioneering leadership development available to Leaders of SMEs without the need to gather a large cohort internally.
It will focus on the needs of SMEs.

The courses will be delivered by Dr Alastair Jones who has been inspiring leadership for over 20 years.

“(I) Was very happy with the delivery of the session. All content was explained/covered in detail and I’ve come away with a deeper understanding of what being a business leader entails.”
