Learn the secrets of leadership in business


Could a different leadership style enable your business to respond more quickly to threats and opportunities?

Does the way you lead maximise your chances of business success and long-term achievement?

Can you adapt your leadership style to suit the situation at hand and support the best outcome?

Join Cumbria Business Growth Hub in Kendal next Wednesday, 11th July, for a practical and relevant session that will enable you to:

  • Recognise what’s most appropriate for your organisation in different circumstances
  • Achieve sustained growth through understanding strong leadership and the right behaviours needed to take your business forward

This workshop is FREE OF CHARGE to eligible businesses thanks to funding through Cumbria Chamber of Commerce, through Allerdale, Barrow, Carlisle, Eden and South Lakeland Councils, and the European Regional Development Fund. It would normally cost around £400.

Using John Kotter of Harvard University’s definition of leadership as ‘aligning people to the vision, that means buy-in and communication, motivation and inspiration’ the workshop will help you to:

  • Develop your own leadership style
  • Recognise and deploy tactics and strategies that suit the needs of your business
  • Adapt your approach to suit changing, and often difficult, challenges.

With a focus on return on investment, you’ll be able to identify the benefits of the time you invest in this training.

The workshop takes place at the Castle Green Hotel, Kendal, from 9am to 4.30pm. To confirm your eligibility and book a place, or if you have any questions, please email Catherynn@cumbriachamber.co.uk.

The workshop is the latest in a series of free Growth Hub workshops to promote business growth.

Others have covered time management, sales and marketing strategy, management tools, writing to sell, writing website content, market research, improving profitability, future proofing your business, and SEO.

The workshops are part of the wider business support offer provided by the Chamber’s Cumbria Business Growth Hub.
