Building and sustaining talent

Wednesday 19 June 2019

Firmwide Leaders

Our presenter, Janet Gaymer, has built and sustained talent at both professional firms and in the public sector. Her insights include: 

  • Explain the purpose of the business to your people and stress that you are there to help them implement it;
  • Set clear expectations on expected performance;
  • Talk less and listen more - ideally speak for no more than 10% of the time - mainly to ask questions;
  • Treat people nicely as this need not have a financial cost;
  • Encourage people to grow and welcome their ideas;
  • Set aside ego and empower your people.

Tackling behavioural barriers to innovation

Thursday 27 June 2019

Knowledge, Innovation & Technology

So what’s the best way to tackle these critical behavioural barriers? Our presenters bring practical hands-on experience:

  • Celebrate and reward success to compensate for the pain of change,
  • Recognise that your ideas will be tempered by leadership and group attitudes and risk appetite,
  • Stop silos emerging between your experts in knowledge (content), innovation (process) and technology (tools),
  • Deploy a mix of tools (education, checklists, rapid prototyping, etc),
  • Be a cautious ambassador for breaking the mould and alternative business models.  

Practical consequences of external shareholders

Wednesday 10 July 2019

Management Team Together

The key lesson from the accountancy consolidators was that effective management is critical to commercial success. And this extends way beyond the CEO. The C-Suite needs to be given the authority to run the business. And if a front-line adviser objects to being told what to do by an 'administrator', the outcome is likely to be very different from a traditional partnership.

Our principal presenter, John Llewellyn-Lloyd, will be joined by a small panel of C-Suite members at professional firms with direct experience of engaging with external shareholders.
