Leadership Peer Network

31 January @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

You are a leader! Join this group to reflect on that, pin-point what you’d like to improve, identify solutions and implement them.

Overview

FOR OXFORDSHIRE BUSINESS LEADERS ONLY

Great leadership skills are increasingly important. The need to be resilient, to lead and to support our staff well, is critical for our businesses.

Being part of this group of leaders will give you a time efficient opportunity to step back, pinpoint what you’d really like to improve, identify solutions and implement them. Many of our past peer group members have been surprised, relieved and inspired to find that we all share similar challenges, no matter what type or size of business we work in.

Perhaps some of the following examples of what leaders often experience will resonate with you:

People

Leading people can have wonderful results that support our businesses and help us to enjoy work. It can also leave you wondering why people aren’t working as you had hoped or how can you get more of the right things done well, and on time. Great leadership also enhances our client and supplier relationships.

Perspective

Working as leader in a small organisation is likely to mean you’re working through things on your own or with a small team. This can mean we have limited opportunities to find out about other approaches, to benefit from other leaders’ experience and to hear fresh perspectives.

Precious time

Time is often tight. Leading people takes time and often we can find ourselves solving problems for our staff and having limited time to do our own work. The busyness of the day-to-day can make stepping back seem like a luxury.

OxLEP Business are inviting ambitious and passionate Business leaders to join this Peer Network and improve their leadership. Peer group sessions use a structured approach that keeps us focussed whilst allowing everyone to discuss what is important to them. Each group member is able to offer and obtain insight and advice. It is a very respectful yet relaxed forum.

Eligibility

  • You must be an Oxfordshire business, established and trading for 12 months+
  • You must have at least 2 FTE (including yourself)
  • An ambition for growth or innovation
  • Must be able to commit to all the sessions

The group will meet on zoom on Wednesdays between 08am and 10am for 8 sessions, starting on the 31st Jan, 14th Feb, 28th Feb, 13th March, 27th March (Gap for Easter) 17th April and 1st May and 15th May 2024
