Ensure your people enjoy better work lives and wellbeing, improve your culture, develop and retain your talent
Corporate Training and Consultancy
Workshops and training programmes that create space for learning, reflection and action for positive change to take place.
The topics I teach and coach on relate to:
People and relationship skills (sometimes known as soft skills)
When people are able to do these things well they feel good, they're engaged, resilient, collaborative and ultimately their performance and impact is greater. This is mutually beneficial for both employees and the business.
These skills can be learned, developed and honed. This is where I come in and is the reason I specialise in these areas.
Over my career I have led, developed and coached new and established teams and leaders to enhance their effectiveness, credibility, relationships and ultimately impact in their personal and business life.
Workshops that are designed and ready to go.
I will meet with you before the training is delivered so I can understand more about your people, culture, mission, values, leadership, environment, challenges and business objectives. This is so that I can tailor my delivery to suit your audience.
* please note if you'd like the training to be specific to your organisation or include your branding, tone of voice, language and reference your organisational initiatives, this will fall under bespoke training as you'll need a learning needs analysis and design time. After an initial chat with you I can send a proposal for this.
