Grow Your Business With LEAD

Grow Creative at Lancaster University is providing leadership training for owner/managers from the Creative Industries starting at the end of November 2009.

LEAD recognises that the most important part of a small business is the owner/manager, therefore the programme seeks to develop them as a leaders and give them the tools and confidence to make strategic business decisions that will help their business develop and grow.

Businesses that have taken part in LEAD over the last 4 years have benefited from a significant increase in sales turnover as a result of their participation.

Interested? Other benefits include:

  • Improved leadership and increased confidence
  • Improved delegation skills, improved staff productivity and more effective business processes
  • The skills to manage your business more effectively in this tough economic climate
  • Increased confidence allowing you to make the right decisions
  • Improved strategic thinking - Work ON your business not IN it
  • The "board you can't afford" - the support and advice from peers is invaluable

"No matter what issues or concerns a business owner has, LEAD can help by offering them the chance to learn from others who have had similar experiences" -Marian Ginesi, Linco Communications, LEAD cohort delegate, February 2009.

Is LEAD right for you?

LEAD has been designed for owners or senior managers of small businesses in the Northwest with up to 20 employees.

Do you?

  • Want to gain confidence in and improve your leadership skills?
  • Want to grow your business but aren't sure of the direction you should take?
  • Want support in developing new business processes and ways of streamlining your business?
  • Feel isolated and without a peer support network to turn to for advice?
  • Do you identify with the profile we are looking for? Would you like to apply some of the benefits of the programme to your business?

    To find out more we are holding some preview sessions where you can meet the team, hear more about the activities involved in LEAD and ask questions. We will also have previous delegates on hand to tell you about their experiences and the benefits to their businesses.
