Hurst launches leadership development program

One of the UK’s leading independent accounting firms have launched a new leadership development program for members of its team.

Hurst is first accountancy firm headquartered in the north to launch a Vistage Inside programme for future leaders – 12 of it’s employees have been enrolled.

Vistage, with 45,000 members worldwide, is a global leader in personal development and advisory groups for CEOs, key executives and leadership teams, providing insight, fresh perspectives, peer advisory groups, coaching and mentoring.

The two-year Vistage Inside programme combines tailored workshops with speaker sessions, insight papers, webinars and one-to-one coaching.

Hurt’s Developing Leaders initiative is being delivered by Victoria Gee, former managing partner at executive search company Warren Partners, in her role as the founder and chair of a Manchester and Cheshire Vistage CEO peer advisory group.

The programme began earlier this month with a full-day workshop and a talk by award-winning speaker, business author and ‘corporate athlete’ Brad Waldron on the key habits of highly-effective leadership.

“The partners firmly believe it is essential to equip our developing leaders with the commercial, client and people skills to ensure the continued success and growth of the practice,” said Chris Stewardson, the partner leading the programme.

“Several of the Hurst board have benefited from Vistage membership for some time, and we are now bringing Vistage to a wider group of people in the firm who are developing into a leadership role. The group is very excited to be working with Victoria to assist with their self-development and look forward to putting their learnings into practice.”

In a statement on Hurst’s website, Gee said it was encouraging to see the firm taking an “impressively proactive approach” to developing its talent and investing to ensure they continue to meet the expectations of their client base.

“The practice has a fantastic culture, a great reputation and a strong position in the market, which all set it apart, but its leaders understand they cannot be complacent as they compete to attract, retain and grow their talent,” she said.
