Leadership Programmes for Small Business Owners

Two new leadership programmes to help small business leaders grow their companies in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic have been launched.

Interested small business leaders can sign up to the Small Business Leadership Programme which will focus on strengthening decision-makers’ leadership skills to address management challenges that have arisen from coronavirus, such as remote working.

The programme will equip business leaders with the confidence and leadership skills to plan for the future of their business, and ensure that they are in a great position to recover from the impacts of coronavirus.

The Peer Networks Programme will focus on helping business owners improve their problem-solving skills through a series of guided exercises. Participants will take part in sessions where common coronavirus related business challenges will be discussed, such as finding new customers and using technology such as customer record management and websites to adapt a business model.

Members of the programme will be given skills in areas such as leadership and management and sales and marketing to tackle the challenges while growing their business.
