Management trainer Guy Williams reveals how business owners and senior managers can alter their approach to managing people to deliver better results from their teams, while simultaneously freeing up their own time.
Guy Williams, of The Training Guys, has seen people management at its worst. A business leader, or senior manager, disaffected with their role because the task of leading a team takes them away from what they do best. And try as they might to get a handle on the task, they can’t get a handle on it.
“Practice doesn’t make perfect: practice makes permanent,” says Guy.
