Black Sheep Institute’s Business Professional Development Program for Senior Managers, Entrepreneurs, Small Business Owners and their teams (BPD Program).
In British Columbia, small businesses employing 50 people or less comprise 98% of all business and 30% of the province’s gross domestic product. Small and start-up businesses face unique challenges concerning capacity building around human resource management, strategic management, business planning, sound process and healthy financial outcomes. The BPD Program uses a combined relationship and systems-based approach to examine business structures, processes, and functions within an organization and its leadership. Learners, both new entrants to the business world and seasoned professionals, will experience a deep exploration of personal strengths and values as they harness their business acumen to inspire and lead others to innovative business solutions. The goal is to become an effective leader who strategically aligns organizational objectives with individual development so that both roads lead to outstanding performance.
