Developing your people

Do you shy away from giving feedback because you're worried it will go badly? Do you want your people to own their development and progression but don't know how to make it happen? You're not alone. But it needn't be a big deal. Learn some basic psychology around how we process feedback and learn how to give feedback in ways that are helpful and effective. Develop and practice using questioning techniques and basic coaching skills to help release the potential of your people. Create and take away an action plan to keep you on track and measure your success.

Engagement Masterclass

An engaged workforce will help take your business to the next level; they’ll understand what you’re trying to achieve, contribute ideas, give discretionary effort, be emotionally invested in the business, enjoy coming to work and delight your customers. A disengaged workforce will create confusion, will hold back their skills and talents, may cause reputational damage and may ultimately leave you causing recruitment and retention challenges. In this half day masterclass, learn how to assess engagement in your company, understand your role and that of the rest of the team in improving engagement and get some top tips to improve and maintain engagement in ways that are both immediate and long-lasting.

Knowing Me, Knowing You

Whether it's a team member we just don't see eye to eye with, a difficult supplier or a customer that we struggle to strike up a conversation with, we all have those moments when we wish we could get our message across more effectively. Taking steps to understand ourselves - our preferences, our personalities and how others perceive us - and also understanding others, can significantly improve how effectively we communicate and how successfully we influence. In this half day course, learn how we make decisions and how we can influence decisions in others. Discover your personality preferences, learn how to identify others' preferences and learn how to adjust your style to get the best out of future interactions. This course is particularly effective when run in-house with people who work together regularly.

One to one coaching & mentoring support

Have you got a development need that isn't covered here? Would you welcome some one-to-one support to help you through a particular challenge? Our accredited coaches can work with you to provide a programme of coaching, mentoring or a blend of the two to help you develop your skill set as a leader, to work through professional challenges or to have a sounding board for your ideas and thoughts. Taking time to step away from your business, reflect on performance and work through any barriers that are inhibiting your potential can pay dividends in the long run. Coaching sessions can be one-off or part of a longer programme.

Prices from £250 (90 minute session). Packages and availability on request.
