You’ve been running your business for a while and it’s going well. Now it’s time to scale up and take your business to the next level. But to do that successfully, it’s important that you have the right skills at your disposal.
In this blog, we look at how to do a skills gap analysis so you can meet your business needs.
Keeping up with your continuing
professional development (CPD) can be tricky at the best of times, and chances
are that the stresses of lockdown have not made this easier over the past few
months. But if you’re feeling up to it, you might find that doing some CPD from
home could be beneficial for you and your business.
Of course, you shouldn’t put any
pressure on yourself to be productive during this time. Lockdown is hugely
stressful for all sorts of reasons, and there’s no need to add to your mental
load unnecessarily. It’s essential that you take care of yourself first and
give yourself a break if you need it!
However, if you do feel up to the
challenge, you may find working on your CPD really valuable. Perhaps you don’t
have as much to do right now and you’re in need of a distraction or something
to give structure to your days. Or maybe you’re keen to feel that you’re still
making progress with your business, even if your normal workload has changed.
Whatever inspires you, here is our guide to doing CPD from home.
