Leadership Programme for SME’s

In 2014, Capability Group decided it wanted to take the design principles and learning model that underpins our various leadership programmes for corporate clients and see if we could support SMEs across New Zealand to build their leadership capability. We established a partnership with the Greater East Tamaki Business Association (with a membership of 2,700 small to medium-sized businesses in the East Tamaki area) to design and pilot the programme. We contextualised our existing offering to the unique challenges faced by many SMEs and ran the first pilot programme in 2015. The programme focuses on building leadership capability in a local geographic area and building collaborative B2B relationships amongst those participating organisations.

The first group consisted of people leaders from ten different organisations.  The Greater East Tamaki Business Association organised an external, 360 review of the programme at the end of 2015.  Capability Group made minor tweaks to the programme as a result and we have just kicked off a second cohort in 2016.
