    • We know your role is to make the person you look after as effective as they can possibly be.
    • We know your workload is huge and you want to know how to be more efficient and productive.
    • We know that since the recession, you have taken on many of the middle management tasks but have never had training in how to do them properly.
    • We know that you are in a unique position in your company as the “go to” person who solves all problems.
