Are you a small business owner struggling with some of the aspects of running your business? 

Do you question your skills and ability to manage and grow a successful business?

Do you feel that your lack of skill or confidence may actually be holding you back?


If you answer 'yes' to one or more of these questions, you are not alone and our Personal Development Programme is for you.

Personal and Team Development for Small Business Owners (SBOs)


To achieve success, a Small Business Owner (SBO) has to develop many skills, such as marketing, finance and sales to name a few. But the core skills holding them back are often the personal skills required to succeed and achieve their growth ambitions. These include: 

  1. Confidence and Assertiveness: so you can always act in the best interest of your business. 
  2. Customer Care: to ensure customers remain loyal to you and recommend you to others.
  3. Creativity and Innovation:  so you can generate ideas, and find creative solutions to problems.
  4. Interpersonal & Communication skills:  so you feel confident and ready to deal with Anyone in all situations.
  5. Influencing and Persuasion: to ensure that you get the best possible outcomes for your business.
  6. Networking: so you can connect and build relationships with potential customers and suppliers.
  7. Presentation Skills and Public Speaking: to represent your business with professionalism and attract new customers.
  8. Problem Solving: to ensure you are able to analyse issues and find the best solutions. 
  9. Project Management: to ensure that your product/service is delivered on time and to budget.
  10. Resilience: so you are able to  ‘bounce back’ from a rejection or setback.
  11. Time Management: so you can focus on activities that deliver the most value to your business.
 And much more.
These are the gaps that the Personal Development Programme are able to fill, ensuring you have the resources for achieving your growth ambitions. (see our development workshops)
