New Chief Executive - New Challenges - Online course

Daunting, challenging, exhilarating, scary...welcome to your promotion!

One day online course

Online courses take place via Zoom and include a one hour lunch break as well as brief refreshment breaks.

Taking charge is a tsunami experience – huge waves of information and expectations. You can quite easily get swept away or you can quietly take control – pinpointing the important and strategic issues to be addressed as a priority.

Preparing and planning before, or soon after, taking on the role and responsibilities of the Chief Executive will increase your confidence, make the right impression, stamp your way of doing things and create the success you deserve.

This course will help you to plan your transition into your new role. It will assist you with creating the personal changes you need to make to the way you act and behave through to how you interact with other people. We will go through the legal and technical issues you will need to confront and control. We will help you pinpoint the development issues you need to prioritise. We will help you increase your personal confidence.
