On the 11th May ProConnect Manchester is hosting two workshops for leaders of creative businesses and first-time managers in the creative industries. These sessions are designed to equip managers and leaders to develop their team and drive better performance across the company.
ProConnect is supported by ERDF (European Regional Development Fund), and held in partnership with Greater Manchester Business Growth Hub with event partners Media City UK.
What makes a successful leader of a creative business?
What are the attributes of a successful leader of a creative business? Are people born with them, or can they be learnt? This highly interactive seminar will help identify the key characteristics of people leading high performing creative companies including understanding personality types - one's own, as well as others', the importance of defining boundaries and establishing a clarity of role, inspiring people - and achieving commitment not just compliance, aligning your team to your company's goals, reviewing progress and effective communication.
The session is taught by Sue Ahern, a former BBC producer and now partner at Creative People. Sue specialises in coaching and helping individuals in the creative industries to realise their full potential and has worked with senior managers and business leaders at many of the UK's leading production companies.
