We train teams and facilitate change in close partnership with your organisation.
Together we create a work environment where your team thrives and individuals meet their full potential.
You’re in HR, or perhaps you’re a Director with a responsibility for the people in your team. We want to help you get the most out of your employees.
We know it’s challenging when your employees aren’t meeting their full potential, despite everyone’s best efforts. It’s hard to witness people feeling stuck, and the negative impacts on team efficiency and mental health.
Our services help you tackle the complex demands of running a high-performing team. We develop employees, and in particular managers, who are then better able to succeed in the face of the challenges of their role.
Manager training is often insufficient in developing the ‘softer’ people skills they need for the job, with ‘bad managers’ being one of the top reasons people cite for leaving their job.
People are expected to just get on with it once they’re promoted into management; they were great at their job – surely they’ll be a great manager too. Right?
Imagine a team of managers with high-quality and direct communication, excellent leadership skills, and core coaching competencies. We can help you build that.
Leaders often assume that effective communication and management skills are obvious; that people are able to do these aspects of the role without specialist training.
In fact, it turns out that a study into ‘accidental managers’ found that above 50% of managers claimed they had had no formal management or leadership training.
We offer training and coaching to support your managers with the unique skills their role calls for:
We believe that issues like high turnover or low engagement are addressed by improving management skills, communication, and staff wellbeing.
Your line managers will feel more confident and capable in the complex, interpersonal areas of their role. They will be better holding challenging conversations and implementing clear boundaries with their direct reports.
Managers will have increased job satisfaction as they develop the leadership skills they need to support their teams. They will develop in many areas, including learning how to:
Management training will dovetail effectively into existing manager support programmes and people development processes. Our coaching interventions will increase engagement with the systems you already have, rather than competing with them.
Your people are not able to give their full potential at work, with surveys and exit interviews bringing staff satisfaction issues to the surface. And you recognise a core part of the challenge is the competency of your managers.
All too often managers feel out of their depth and are under-trained. This means they’re unable to support their reports in meaningful ways; issues are frequently escalated to HR or director level, and teams are under-performing.
You’ve tried to put management training and improved people processes in place, but they’re not having a deep enough impact.
