IoD Advance Insight Workshop: Achieve More by Doing Less!

01 May 2019
Dakota Deluxe Leeds, Leeds

The world is changing at a rate that is unprecedented.

The demands for results, for increased profits and growth means huge demands on leaders. Faced with this kind of pressure many have battened down the hatches and tried to do more. The outcome is that they are stretched and stressed and finding it tough to deliver results. The constant pressures from customers, their boss and their people keeps them stuck in the day to day, unable to do what they are supposed to do… increase the value of the business.

The great news for leaders is that they need to work on just 6 things to do that and in the session Sarah will share what they are.

In addition delegates will see how giving up the following 6 things not only gives leaders more time but also increases engagement.

  • Having all the answers
  • Solving all the problems
  • Knowing the most
  • Contributing the most
  • Coming up with all the new ideas
  • Taking others responsibility

    This session provides a new way of thinking about the role of a leader as one in which they do less but achieve greater results.
