Senior Executives and Middle Management
Senior Executive and Middle Management can be challenging on a number of levels! Sometimes it can feel as if you're being pushed and pulled from both directions - and sometimes you are. It's a delicate balancing act that requires a blend of leadership skills, management skills, technical skills and people skills - just to name a few! Executives may find that they require a deeper understanding of specific business, leadership or management concepts, and this is where IIDM can provide your on-the-job training, as and when you need it.
While coping with the day-to-day management issues, you may also be focused on progressing further. What do you need to build on to move up the corporate ladder? Gone are the days that longevity in a role would guarantee progression through the ranks. With performance expectations at peak levels, you need to be consistently upgrading, building and improving your business, leadership and management skills. Face your existing challenges with greater confidence and prepare yourself for your next big move with IIDM's continuous professional development programs.
Small to Medium Business Owners
Many of the challenges that small to medium business owners face are unique, in that they often find it difficult to work "on" the business, as they're so busy working "in" the business. To raise your business out of the middle ranks however, it's necessary to expose yourself to new ways of thinking and doing and streamline your business into the next phase. IIDM can fill in the gaps in areas that you may not traditionally be strongest in.
When you start your own business, it is usually because you do some things well, but there is so much more to running a successful business! And as your business grows, your needs change. You need to learn new skills in leadership and management and consolidate your knowledge to maximise your outcomes. Let IIDM be the business resource that you turn to, to build and grow your business and your professional skills.
