Leading Growth Programme

What is the Leading Growth Programme?

Watch our video with Royston Guest, Programme Facilitator and Coach to learn more.

In any leadership role, you face new challenges every day and wear many different hats in the workplace. The ‘Leading Growth’ programme is designed for business owners and senior leaders who want to rise above the day-to-day and focus on accelerating their business through the next phase of growth.

The programme

The programme will run over a number of group sessions and has been designed to allow participants to complete the sessions alongside their work commitments. It usually consists of four face-to-face one-day workshops, top and tailed with a launch event and a final 90-minute masterclass titled Maintaining Momentum.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the four face-to-face full day workshops will be split into eight morning sessions. The programme is built around a practical curriculum which features:

  • An information masterclass;
  • One hour introduction session;
  • Four full-day workshops / Eight morning sessions;
  • One half-day ‘Maintaining Momentum’ session;
  • Six video calls
  • Peer networking opportunity to exchange experiences and knowledge with other business leaders, including lunch Q&A sessions with past attendees of the programme;
  • One-to-one support from the mentor, providing you with personalised support to develop your business growth plan;
  • A series of blended tools including; webinars, zoom sessions, white papers and online tools for you to use.

Whether you’re running your own business or you’re a senior leader in an organisation, the ‘Leading Growth’ programme gives you a forum to rise above the urgent and concentrate on what’s most critical: the difficult, strategic decisions that will drive your business forward. By the end of the programme you will develop a business growth plan to help you lead your business to its potential.

The benefits

At the end of the Leading Growth programme you will be able to confidently say:

  • I lead myself: being a great leader starts with leading self and articulating a succinct answer to questions like; why anyone should be led by you?
  • I lead the business: understanding how, as a commercially savvy leader, you set the strategic business plan, understand the growth levers and all the moving parts which go into

a rounded business growth strategy and how you shape a high performance culture in order to turn your vision into reality.

  • I lead others: unlocking people potential by identifying what makes individuals tick and how to develop great performance in others.
The facilitator

The programme runs in partnership with Pathways Global and is facilitated by inspiration speaker and business leader, Royston Guest. Pathways Global is based in Jersey and specialises in growing businesses through people – hence the title for the programme; ‘Leading Growth’.

Why now?

The start of the programme has been deliberately timed to bridge with two key milestones;

First, the opening up of restrictions from COVID-19 and the need for businesses to plan what their REBOUND plan looks like and…

If your financial year-end aligns with the calendar year-end, then it will allow you to really hone in on your growth plans to rebound in 2021 and shape your growth plans for 2022, and beyond.
