About The Making of a Boss
Promoted for our technical prowess it’s not unusual to find ourselves in a leadership role without the skills we need to lead and manage people. This session explores how to rise to the challenge of being a great boss.
We’ll go on a whirlwind tour exploring time management; focus; decision making; delegating, simplicity and the broader business landscape. Julian Birkinshaw will reveal how to lead more effectively and why doing so is vital for organizational success.
You’ll leave with a toolkit enabling you to manage, lead and communicate in a way that pulls together the goals and purpose of the organization that you are a critical part of.
