The Leading Growth project is aimed at SMEs based predominately in the Tees Valley. The concept of the programme is to support the owner-managers of these SMEs to address the leadership challenges they encounter and will help to develop and strengthen leadership skills and promote growth in the business.

1— leading growth: 6 months advice, consultancy, mentorship and peer to peer development interventions delivered to small groups of SME owner-managers with the potential and a commitment to grow, but which lack the internal capacity to respond to growth opportunities,

2— management catalyst: operating alongside Leading Growth, this 3 months programme supports lower level managers, assisting the development of in company systems /processes to allow owner-managers to focus on growth.

Experienced business coaches are required to join a panel to support both the leading growth and management catalyst development programmes by providing one-to-one coaching to the SMEs on the courses. Delegates have access to 5 hours’ worth of coaching on the programme over four sessions.
