Plus, we have a great team of experienced specialists, lawyers and other experts who deliver engaging, thorough workshops. We can promise you energetic trainers who are highly acclaimed in their specialist field.
Our training and coaching can be delivered at regional venues or in-house across East Anglia and cover a variety of topics including:
We design and deliver training courses and workshops across the UK to directors, senior managers, line managers, supervisors and HR managers. We also work closely with businesses to deliver workshops to those employees who are being considered for management positions, or those new to management, to ensure effective succession planning takes place.
Workshops are highly interactive – stretching – but fun. They focus on shared experiences and positive action planning. In our legal training, we use ‘live’ case studies all based on the current legal position and our experience.
In our Management and Leadership training and coaching, we use team exercises, film, games and practical scenarios to ensure the topic is fully explored and as experiential as possible. Each course is fully developed specifically for the client with the end user in mind.
Detailed delegate workbooks underpin the workshops with practical notes to take away. Pre and post course questionnaires are written specifically for each course to assess the level of knowledge of candidates before course attendance. They also help with evaluation of the programme and demonstrate a return on investment. Ideally, budget permitting, facilitators then visit the manager in their business or discuss outcomes by telephone, to validate the learning, offer on the job feedback and further coaching.
To add a completely different dimension to our courses, we may also use experienced actors to ensure the delegate experience is as realistic as possible. Feedback from delegates is overwhelmingly positive for use of this practical element of the training. This is particularly impactful with topics such as interviewing skills, appraisal skills, communication skills, leadership skills, dealing with conflict and disciplinary and grievance handling.
In reality, we have never had anyone who has not enjoyed and benefited from the experience. Be assured, this is not role-playing as most people know it; we prefer to call it ‘real play’.
We have considerable experience in the implementation of Leadership Development programmes.
Our approach is effective because it combines key elements to engage the manager and generate trust and confidence. This is not an easy task, as some managers and most senior managers resist the need for personal development. We work hard to establish credibility and demonstrate a mix of development interventions. We offer:
We are developing a series of e-learning courses that you can complete online. They will be bite-size, up-to-date courses to be completed in your time on relevant and popular HR matters.
