Managing the people in your business can be like herding cats. Trying to herd them in the general direction of your goals, business plan or targets is even more challenging.

This workshop will equip you to strategically lead your various cats* in the direction you want to go.

*Cats include professional staff, admin staff, referrers, suppliers, life partners and of course the most important cat: you.

The course leader is Craig Allingham - physio and MBA trained  with decades of experience managing clinicians and support staff. He is the Director of the Practitioner Business Academy and author of 'Book More Clients'.

  • Hire smarter
  • Clarify the contractor versus employee relationship
  • Have their team actually doing their real jobs

'Thanks for your follow-up email. This has been the most productive I have ever been after a PD course - not sure whether it was knowing you were following up or having my practice manager hassle me about the goals I wanted to achieve. Thanks for the resources, information and strategy for HR'.
