    This comprehensive survey measures the level of exit-readiness of businesses from a wide range of industries across Australia and New Zealand. This year’s findings reveal a significant lack of preparedness among surveyed business owners. Despite 72% of business owners expecting to exit their businesses in the next 10 years, only 38% have an exit plan in place. This is a significant risk and can mean the difference between a successful exit at maximum profit and a difficult exit where value may be lost.

    Have you ever promoted high-performing staff into management roles only to find they are mediocre as leaders? Middle Managers are pivotal in every organisation. They are responsible for the performance and engagement of 80% of the staff, yet most have never been taught the skills they need to succeed in their leadership roles. This is setting your managers and teams up for failure.

    The truth is that managing people is challenging. You need highly skilled leaders with their finger on the pulse, who know how to inspire their team to deliver exceptional results, who are forward-focused and positive about change and who resolve conflicts themselves rather than passing them onto HR.

    Rapidly Upskill Your Middle Managers

    Introducing World Class Teams’ Advanced Certificate of Leadership. This program is designed to equip Middle Managers with the five essential skills to become world class leaders. It offers all the practical content of our comprehensive Diploma of Leadership and Management course minus the extensive assignments needed to achieve national accreditation.

    Get in touch with us today and find out how to turn your Middle Managers into an unstoppable force, driving your organisation to new heights.

    Managers will discover how to:

    • Build a cohesive, high-performing team
    • Inspire people to deliver exceptional results
    • Adapt their style to bring out the best in each person
    • Demonstrate exceptional Emotional Intelligence
    • Increase effectiveness and productivity
    • Be future focused & agile
    • Communicate effectively in all situations
    • Initiate meaningful change
    • Influence your organisation at all levels

    Our next two Open programs are starting 27th February and 11th April 2024.
