We believe that investment in leadership and management skills is vital not just to the growth of the business but the growth of our employees. Two key members of the Harvey team are honing their skills on a leadership and management course.

Deborah Wood, office manager, and Neil Sharp, Service Team Leader, are both halfway through an Institute of Leadership and Management distance learning course; a course offered to them and paid for by the business.

Martin Harvey, managing director, said: “At Harvey we have a strong, loyal team of people who really want to help the business prosper and grow. As such, it is important for us to support and help them develop within their respective roles.”

Deborah said: “It was great to be offered this opportunity, particularly as my team continues to grow. The course is really making me think about current ways of working and ways in which things can be constantly improved.”

Neil added: “The course is proving to be very insightful and I’m really glad I accepted the opportunity to do it. It’s all too easy to carry on doing things as you’ve always done, but this course had made me think of better ways operating; and all for the benefit of the wider business.”

The course enables Deborah and Neil to gain a range of key management skills and put these into practice within their own roles. In leadership terms, it gives them the confidence and capability to motivate and engage teams and manage relationships confidently.
