Event format

Through group activities the session fostered engagement and collaboration among participants. Inspiring them to reflect on the leadership within their own company and consider how they can embody the traits of an efficient manager. 

Clients gathered for an interactive breakout session centred around the theme of ‘superhero managers.’ Participants delved into the qualities that define exceptional leadership and the traits that often combat that. From ineffective communication skills to non-strategic decision-making, attendees shared their insights and experiences, breaking down what makes a ‘superhero manager’. 

Following the breakout session, clients reconvened for a group discussion on the topic ‘why leaders struggle to let go of power’. Drawing on their collective expertise and experiences, participants identified key reasons such as trust issues, feelings of inferiority, and insufficient training. Through open dialogue and exchange of perspectives, attendees gained insights into the challenges faced by leaders when delegating and empowering. 

Client testimonials

Post event feedback from our clients was as follows:

“Enjoyable style of delivery with some useful content and plenty of thoughts to take away and try and put into practice. I run a small business and it was really useful that the session took various sectors and sizes of business into account so that it felt relevant.”

“A good model for how to avoid micromanagement and a way of challenging oneself to “only do what only you can do.”

“It was interesting to hear everyone suffers with the same issues – that in itself is quite interesting and opens another debate on whether it is us as control freaks or there is a lack of buy in/hunger from our teams – or is it a generational thing.”

Leadership breakfast

The session provided the opportunity for Bristol businesses of different industry backgrounds to interact with each other. In attendance were managers of various levels, from company owners to smaller team managers. Kicking off the morning with complimentary pastries and refreshments attendees mingled and took their seats engaging in conversation with fellow leaders, forming new relationships and expanding their network.
