Take your business to the next level!

Is your business growing but you’re not sure how to take maximise the growth opportunity? Has your business grown and now you find your systems and people aren’t able to support your growth? Are your staff moving up the career ladder but in need of training?  Could your business benefit from sustainability and productivity up-skilling? Hawke’s Bay employers are telling us that business growth coupled with labour shortages means they are promoting staff into Leadership roles but don’t have the time to equip them with the appropriate skills. To assist, the Hastings District Council economic development team has partnered with The Lean Hub to run a three-month, tailored Leadership Development Programme for local businesses. This development programme is unlike any other that your staff may have attended in the past and it is proven to deliver real results to your business – fast! This partnership includes opportunities to share the costs of the programme with the council. Participants will be mentored to develop key skills including:

  • KPIs & Metrics

Businesses that take part in the Leadership Development Programme will also gain an insight into progress with the Hastings District Productivity Programme, a 12-month programme based on the LEAN principles of being focused on performance and creating efficiencies. What were the benefits of completing the Hastings District Productivity Programme? Mark Currie from Drainways undertook the programme last year and said: “With help from The Lean Hub we were able to get some early runs on the board through making small changes that contributed to the bigger changes that boosted our turnover and created new jobs within the business. “It’s well worth the investment, Steffan did such an amazing job, he was proactive and very hands-on.  It wasn’t all text book stuff, he came out and observed the team on projects, which helped refine our systems and processes. Our business has already seen a substantial return on the investment in a very short time and we are now in a position for sustainable growth.” To find out more about the Leadership Development Programme visit www.theleanhub.co.nz or for a more personal chat about this Programme call Trev on 027 5311666 or Steffan on 027 6968516
