Following the successful pilot of the first CEO Strategic Leadership to Build Value programme Gearing for Growth are launching a second programme in September.
Benefits to Founders, CEOS and Investor Directors
- Founders and CEOs with increased self awareness, who are able to lead themselves and their team well, take a more strategic approach and build; a values led culture for growth;
- Founders and CEOs who understand the investor’s perspective, the benefit of a strong board and the role of the CEO at different stages of growth.
These workshops are specifically designed for invested companies to develop their leadership capabilities and understanding, develop a growth mindset and engage with others to set their companies up to build value, for a successful exit and achieve entrepreneurial wealth. They focus on establishing an understanding of themselves as leaders and the impact they have on their business, the benefits to growth of establishing a clear vision early, along with core values, a high performing culture, strong board and good investor relations to ensure a focus on building value. Moving on in the second series to focus on building high performance teams, identifying, developing and coaching potential, leading change and innovation and effective dialogue for impactful conversations and powerful feedback.
These will support founding teams to understand the perspective and role of investors and the board in these aspects of business growth and how to effectively engage and gain value from their investors and board. A number of Investor and Non-Executive Directors will be invited to attend each of the series of workshops to support the investor and board perspective and development
The workshops are designed to be informative, engaging, and action orientated, taking a coaching approach, encouraging peer learning, sharing of experiences and the development of trust and understanding, within each cohort which can continue as a strong peer network post programme. Participants will be encouraged to build a development plan for the series, ideally with input from their board and team, with between 2 and 3 personal and business objectives. To support this they will be encouraged to decide key action points to deploy within their own business, at the end of each workshop to ensure the learning is put into practice in their business.
