Sunny Dhadley said: "I'm delighted to have been given this Award by CMI in recognition of my management and leadership abilities. At one point in my life I didn't think that anything was achievable. This award has shown me – and others – that everything is."
"As a leader, I'm constantly looking at how we can improve our business – we're taxpayer funded and taxpayers need to know that their money is being spent in the right way. The business acumen I have picked up through Chartered Manager has enabled me to make sure that it is. If we perform better it's not only good for our finances, but good for the people we serve and for the community as a whole."
CMI's West Midlands Chair, Phil Ryan, congratulated Sunny on his prize: "Achieving Chartered Manager status is a kitemark that a manager is among the best in the profession, but Sunny's exceptional leadership makes him stand out. He is a worthy winner of this CMI Award for Excellence. Sunny is clearly committed to using his abilities to make a real impact and making sure his organisation performs at the highest levels to make a real difference for service users in the local area."
The Award comes as CMI prepares to publish research showing the impact of Chartered Managers in all sectors of the economy. Analysis shows that Chartered Managers deliver up to £391,443 in value to their employers by exceeding targets, improving processes and innovating. Meanwhile, some 92% of Chartered Managers report increased self awareness as a result of achieving Chartered status, with 90% reporting increased self confidence in their roles – traits that help them lead effectively.*
