Top Tips for Growing Your Business

Leaders of growing businesses face challenges that can prevent their aspirations for growth from taking root, often the demands of business as usual means that ambition for growth doesn't flourish and bear fruit.

Here at the Centre we understand the leadership capabilities needed to prepare themselves and their business for growth and maximise the opportunities it presents. That's why we have joined forces with Cumbria Growth Hub, BECBC and other partners* to offer SMEs in Cumbria tailored support under Cumbria Growth Catalyst (funded by Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership utilising support from Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy).

We have put together a package of development support tailored to leaders of SMEs who want to grow their business:

  1. An initial business health check using our 'Growth Leadership Capability' Diagnostic, looking at 8 elements of Growth Leadership
  2. Coaching for leaders of growing businesses
  3. Workshops to help develop the skills needed to successfully develop your leadership skills to meet the needs of a growing business, e.g:
  • The Art of Delegating Well — March 21: One of the personal challenges leaders of SMEs have is to step back and let others take over operational roles so they can focus on business strategy and growth. Find out how to make time to grow your business by becoming an effective delegator.

Our partners BECBC are also offering free Cumbria Growth Catalyst workshops:

  • Managing Company and Personal Data — March 26
  • Business Development and Sales for SMEs — March 26

If you would like to attend any of the workshops or are interested in having a no obligation chat about the business health check or coaching support then please email Lucy or ring her on 01900 824 822.

* Cumbria Growth Catalyst is delivered as part of Cumbria Business Growth Hub™ by a number of partners including Cumbria Chamber of Commerce, Britain's Energy Coast Business Cluster, Centre for Leadership Performance, Cumbria Tourism, Farmer Network and National Farmers Union.
