5th May – Trial a Leadership Group exclusively for Estate Agency Leaders and take your business to the next level.


Peter Knight launched the first Leadership Group 10 years ago to help property professionals improve their personal and business performance. Members have included some of the most well known and successful firms such as Romans, Finders Keepers, Greene & Co., Karl Tatler, Keatons and Ashtons as well as many other businesses of all sizes.


On 5th May we have invited one of our most popular speakers David Smith to deliver a workshop on “Bad Bosses: The Top 10 Leadership Pitfalls”.

David has over 35 years corporate experience of change management, the last 15 years of which were spent in the turnaround of the Asda Retail Business. Asda has been transformed from a bankrupt broken business to the highly successful retailer it is today, and has also achieved the status of being the “Best Place to Work” in the UK Sunday Times Survey. David and his team led many of the changes which created a highly productive performance based culture, and laid the foundations for commercial success. Today, David is a highly respected author, business speaker and consultant. He has also been requested to mentor a limited number of CEOs and HRDs. He is Chairman of the Board of Institute for Employment Studies.

Session overview:

There is a dearth of great leadership in Politics (the UK Brexit debacle will leave its scars for years) and in Business (we regularly see CEO departures driven by greed and obscene bonus payments/high profile CEOs accused of bullying and sexual misconduct). Despite so many books written on the topic of leadership, and so many leadership development programmes – errors of leading others seem to be repeated regularly. David’s research into the topic of bad bosses and poor leadership, has included 100s of Vistage Members – who have contributed their stories of leadership failure with great enthusiasm. David has now compiled the behaviours which most demotivate followers. This is a very timely topic, which will hugely benefit Group members wishing to avoid the common behaviours which most demotivate their teams. Participants will leave with a simple practical explanation of the behaviours to avoid/and stamp out in their own organisation. They will have a method by which to measure and analyse their own and their Team’s leadership behaviours in this critical area. This is a powerful workshop, on a vital topic for the 21st Century.

Leadership Groups are suitable for individuals from companies of all sizes – owners of large companies are inspired by the ideas and innovations being adopted by owners of small and single branch companies and vice versa.

What is important, is a common desire to learn and help one another to have a better business. We learn better together and friendships are formed along the way.
