About the Event

The Developing a Team & Organisation for Growth workshop will help startup founders and SME leaders learn how to lead and develop a high performing team that can live your company values, feel ownership and help you drive growth. We’ll be using GrowthWheel® , a tool for decision-making in startup and growth companies. It helps business advisors and entrepreneurs get focus, set agenda, make decisions, and take action.

Key Takeaways

In this workshop, you will create your own 360-degree screening of your venture or business idea and an action plan for the next 90 days.

You will also walk away with 4 GrowthWheel tools that helps you plan and lead the team for growth.

Topic 1: People basics for Startups and SMEs
Wise up on crucial elements like: When to hire? How to hire well? How to build a high-performing, productive and motivated team that owns and leads the success of the company?

Interactive element(s):
• Utilising the proven GrowthWheel toolkit
• Creating a growth plan linking financials and hiring needs
• Calculating ROI of different hires to inform aligned people investments
• Creating job descriptions
• Learning to delegate like a leader

Topic 2: Leading self before leading others
Many startups and SME leaders are inexperienced at leading teams and companies and thus have little or no conceptual frameworks or roadmaps to rely on when making critical decisions. Often salaries make up the main costs of the venture, and you can only create much-needed results through your people. So knowing how to hire well is key to your success. However, leading others starts with leading yourself more effectively, as you set the tone, energy, and example for others.

Interactive element(s):
• Map your values and principles of leadership
• Map your goals and vision for the team and how your leadership aligns
• Knowing your strengths and learning edge as a leader (utilizing and mitigating)

Topic 3: Leading the team for Growth
Discover simple practices, key techniques, and the mindset to lead a team creatively towards breakthrough and high performance in your venture. Great leaders are not born – leadership can be learned. Learn how to overcome the notion that “you don’t have time” and that “it is faster to do it yourself”, to build an awesome all-star team that scores goals.

Interactive element(s):
• Team Performance Model Exercise
• Assessment of your team’s strengths and weaknesses
• Creating your team development plan for alignment
• Practicing appreciative feedback
