Corporate Training

Understanding new behavioural skills creates new attitudes. Our training impacts cognitive processes, such as, personal information and processing abilities including perception, learning, judging and problem-solving.

 

Our training methodology finds its origins in a broad version of the Palo Alto School of Communication and theorists including Fons Trompenaars, Marshall Rosenberg and Peter Senge. We deliver training in all leadership, management, sales and organisational development (process and Information Technology) themes.

 

Our purpose is to challenge established thinking, unlock insights and enable civil servants, corporate managers, bankers, lawyers, insurance underwriters, Information Technology specialists etc. to become as professional in leading and managing as they are in their specialist fields. We provide experienced leaders an environment where they can benefit from stepping back to reassess and develop their personal philosophy, impact and legacy.

 

In many sectors, people find themselves in leadership roles because of their technical excellence. Often, they have little or no effective preparation for the challenges of leadership. We design and deliver practical training programmes that connect individual aspirations to business needs. We produce confident, competent leaders, managers and employees to improve the performance and sustainability of their organisations.

Our corporate training typically features phased intensive workshops with project work between sessions over a few months. This facilitates personal application of the training concepts in the workplace. We also offer one-to-one coaching after each programme.

We design and implement bespoke training at all hierarchical levels. We enable technical experts – such as corporate managers, bankers, lawyers, insurance underwriters, civil servants or new hires – to become as professional in leading and managing as they are in their specialist fields. We install accelerated, measurable improvement in employee's skills to directly impact operational indicators and financial results.

To be effective, leaders need ever greater self-knowledge and practical understanding of human psychology in developing interpersonal relations and representing teams, departments and whole organisations. Leadership implies lifelong learning which may include unlearning habits acquired earlier in life.

A Creative Blend of Consulting, Training & Coaching

Through consulting, we provide a sounding board and source of advice and facilitation on leadership issues for Boards, CEOs and Managing Partners. Typical challenges that we help with include formulating and communicating business strategy, creating and sustaining a successful working environment and developing a climate that attracts, retains and develops people according to business need.

With the global business environment growing more regulated and complex, it is no longer safe to assume that individual, departmental or performance problems can be corrected simply by consulting and training. The obstacle may not be the lack of skills or knowledge. It could be an unnoticed bottleneck in corporate communications, ineffective management behaviours, processes or systems, an environment that inhibits motivation, or any of many other diverse but interrelated factors.

We offer aligned and bespoke training programmes to focus on your organisation’s business needs and gaps in competence. We design programmes using our clients existing internal materials and learning. When prefer to deliver training and coaching using a phased training approach. This means that in most cases training days are phased to allow some weeks’ application in real life between the training sessions.

Through 1:1 coaching, we enable executives and professionals at all levels to develop their leadership and business development capabilities, to plan and take career decisions, to balance the demands of work and personal life and to prepare for specific meetings and communication challenges.

We help our clients to proactively control their environment rather than being controlled by it. We demonstrate what 'leader-managers' must do to proactively control all situations at work to ensure positive results and that motivates all those involved.
