Universities &

Business Schools

We work with Executive MBA and post and undergraduate graduate students at Edinburgh University, ISG Paris, the Baltic Management Institute (Vilnius), Kiev National Economic University and in centres of learning throughout the Middle East and Africa.

 

Our work involves training students to learn the language of business and to proactively influence and motivate their managers, colleagues, staff and internal/external clients. Our purpose is to show how the students can CONSCIOUSLY influence others and the business environment through the quality of their preparation to deliver win-win outcomes and the results they want. We explain what 'leader-managers' must do to proactively control all situations at work to ensure a positive result and that motivates all involved.

 

Delivered, using a phased format, we bring a new evolution in personal beliefs and identity. Understanding new behavioural skills creates new attitudes, beliefs and actions. Our approach impacts cognitive processes, such as, personal information processing abilities including perception, learning, remembering, judging and problem-solving.
