About this Masterclass

About this Summit

"Long the unsung heroes, managers are actually the key ingredient that makes the difference in great companies".

We are all familiar with the saying that a manager can make or break a team. A great manager is able to create the right environment for their team members to become high performers and bring great results for the company. But being a great manager may sound easy, but it is more often than not, a difficult thing to actually implement and do.

So whether you are a manager that is looking to improve their skills and better support your team as you all work on your goals, or you are an entrepreneur/ start-up founder who is looking to identify the best manager for your company (or want to incorporate some of their skills as well), then this masterclass is just right for you.

We are excited to be having David Deacon, the author of "The Self Determined Manager: A Manifesto for Exceptional People Managers" be talking about what exactly makes a good manager, what you need to focus on as a priority and taking a look at our current situation where being a good manager means engaging a spread out team who is mostly working remotely!

Main Learning Objectives that will be discussed during the masterclass:

1. We’ll explore what great managers do, what makes them great. Which is disarmingly simple, and remarkably hard to do.

2. We’ll unpick exactly what you need to focus on in order to become a great manager

3. We’ll review what the best managers are doing now to still get productivity and commitment from people in this all-remote all-the-time, Covid-era.

This Masterclass is for:

HR People and Managers, Team Leaders, Entrepreneurs, Start-up Founders.
