After successfully navigating the initial peaks and troughs of turning your passion and idea into a sustainable business, entrepreneurs look forward to the growth phase of their enterprise. This often entails expansion and, in turn, extensive investment in attracting the best-in-class people at the most affordable rates. What entrepreneurs often overlook on this part of their journey is the importance of identifying, making concrete, and meeting their personal leadership development needs. This understanding provides clarity on what added value others must bring to your business, who is best-suited to join you on your business growth path, and where to find this talent.
This 1-day Leadership Strengthening Retreat promises to deliver practical tools and leadership plans for founders/leaders of small and growing small businesses across Southern Africa. By applying an empirically validated and widely successful leadership development instrument, Strengths Finder 2.0, as well as personal and enterprise leadership development exercises, this retreat offers an intensive and transformative experience. The retreat activities focus on identifying individual leadership strengths and qualities to drive a small business growth strategy; leveraging this understanding to identify the key strengths and skills an enterprise leader must surround themselves with as their enterprise teams grow; and providing step-by-step strategies to design and implement goal-oriented plans.
A secondary differentiating purpose of this comprehensive retreat is to bring like-minded small business leaders into a communal space for experience-sharing, and greater personal and enterprise leadership growth. This retreat is the first of a quarterly retreat series designed especially with small to medium enterprise leaders and founders in mind.
This retreat experience is led by Dr. Brian K. Perkins, an internationally renowned organisation leadership, and system-level transformation expert in education, corporate, and small enterprise sectors. Currently the Director, Urban Education Leaders Program at Teachers College Columbia University in New York, Dr. Perkins has served as a leadership coach to corporate leaders, managers, principals, district-office personnel, superintendents and board members and has facilitated dozens of retreats for education leaders in the United States and abroad.
