EO Learn - How To Be An Empowering Leader Or Manager In An EO Business

Telos and J Gadd Associates, in partnership with the EOA, have developed a programme to equip leaders and managers with the right tools and mindset to drive success in an employee-owned business.

This course will support leaders and managers in employee owned businesses to foster and develop a growth mindset, as well as engage, inspire and empower employees. Delegates will gain confidence and capability in core leadership skills and gather insight into how to unlock the potential of employee ownership to create high-performing teams.

The course will provide an immersive personal development programme of 5 virtual half-day sessions over three months consisting of a mixture of sharp, focused input, practical application and facilitated reflection on real experiences to bring the learning to life.

Effective management and leadership are essential to driving long term organisational performance and productivity.

However, management and leadership in an employee-owned business requires a different approach to that seen in other ownership structures and the EOA is delighted to invite you or your colleagues to participate in this new course, specifically aimed at manager and leaders in employee-owned businesses.

The Ownership Dividend report in 2018 evidenced that when then the interests of leaders and employee owners are aligned it unites them behind a common purpose allowing them to innovate, flex and demonstrate resilience.  From this, good leadership was identified as one of the three key building blocks of good employee ownership, bringing to life good governance and good communications and engagement.

Beyond the transition to employee-ownership, there is a transformative process that needs leaders that have a mindset that embraces change, encourages innovation, promotes learning, builds resilience, and delivers growth in themselves and others.
