The Seven Key Skills of The Successful Business Leader – with Alan Cook

How do we identify the key skills we need to develop for the best chance of success?

Using practical examples and drawing on his experience of working with and coaching more than 100 business leaders, Alan will outline the seven key skills required to manage and grow a business. Key skills that are consistently rated by successful business leaders as being in their top 10. Of course, there are skills that are specific to industry and commerce sectors – this workshop allows for this and blends industry-specific needs with general leadership skills.
