CML Community – Cast Series*

Being successful, thinking strategically about how to develop and support staff and tips for management education & graduates  

This month we interviewed Richard Maybury, IoD Surrey Chair & Managing Consultant Attitude Solutions. Richard shared his views on staff development, growth strategies and surviving the fast paced working environment.  

Clip 1: Are you working hard but you are not successful?

Clip 2: Why are staff support interventions always taking place at the point of pain instead of the point of growth?

Clip 3: Why do SMEs develop people more at the point of growth than at the point of pain and what can we learn about that?

Clip 4: Where should graduates start their first graduate job to get the most support?

Clip 5: What can we as a business school do to support students in being able to survive the fast pacing world of work?
