Training and Development

We want to help and we want to deliver genuinely useful results for your business. We spend the time – and the energy – that it takes to understand your business fully. This allows us to produce engaging, stimulating, relevant and bespoke programmes that are properly informed by your real needs.

Training is critical because it is how we can equip your staff with the knowledge, skills, confidence and attitudes that will enable them to be successful in their roles, both now and in the future. From identifying and then filling skills gaps to helping specific individuals step up into senior roles, we can help you, your business and its people to solve problems and achieve goals.

Developing your people is a key means of moving your business forward and improving your results. Not only that, but good training helps you retain great staff. By helping you approach training strategically, we focus on creating a steady pipeline of quality people who can progress into roles as your business needs them. Relevant training and development achieves demonstrably improved business performance.

What We Do

We provide a full service from multi-module blended programmes and coaching to one-day workshops, from board level to newly recruited junior staff.

Leadership and Management Development

We help your key people develop leadership skills fit for purpose. Whether through one-off events or as part of larger, multi-module blended programmes. We focus on everything from team building and team development to emotional intelligence and training – whatever fills the gaps we identify together.

Business Skills

Your business is only as strong as the skills of your people. Training is about developing and enhancing those skillsets in order to improve better business results. From negotiation skills, presentation skills, sales training, leadership, Emotional Intelligence, our training workshops focus on inspiring and engaging your staff to understand their roles – and take ownership of their results.

Leadership Coaching

Business coaching is fundamentally about problem solving. Leadership coaching best complements a structured training programme, but adds value to that wider process by focusing on the key elements of good management. We focus on an investigation both of an individual’s strengths and those skills, such as problem solving, which make the difference between being the boss and leading a team.

Organisational Development

Your business’s commitment to training shouldn’t end with the latest workshop. Developing an organisational capacity for continual learning is key – and we’re proud to support our clients to thrive. To do so, we deliver train the trainer courses and climate surveys which seek to build your internal capability. Sustainable development is our watchword – our work isn’t done when the course closes.
