Leading a business is a hugely challenging role at any time. Over the last couple of years, leaders have also had to adapt to the impacts of Brexit, the pandemic and rising costs. This means that building resilience has never been more important to ensure both commercial success and avoiding burnout. 

This interactive course is designed for business leaders and owners who want to better understand their leadership style, get the best from their teams and prepare themselves for the challenges ahead.

The course includes the following modules:

  • Values based leadership. The why of your businesses values and purpose should be at the foundation of everything the business does. Values-based leadership can instil a common set of values in all employees, improving their cohesiveness and willingness to work together. (Run by Elevate)
