The relationship between leading a team and business success
There are stories abound of trendy offices where there are slides not stairs, where gyms and meditation spaces come before meeting rooms. However there is more to leading a happy team than providing a relaxation space, and with the weight of research pointing to happiness within teams leading to increasing productivity and reduced sickness absence, now is a great time to review ideas on team cohesion and business success. Drawing on 10 years’ experience as CEO of AestheticSource and previous experience including leading a team at Q-Med UK Ltd and 8 years running The Bowes Clinics delivering aesthetic treatments around the UK from 1996 to 2004 when the company was successfully sold, Lorna will spark ideas and present both concepts and tools designed to encourage collaboration, flow, team happiness and ultimately, as we all want, fiscal rewards.
