It’s really practical because you are giving us tools, but more importantly, you are giving us completely different ways of thinking – ideas that would never come into my own head. I don’t think I’ve ever had this level of enjoyment and experience in any staff development. You guys have just got a different approach.

Thanks so much for the training last week, it was really good. It was amazing that you managed to develop the session exactly to brief, following just a one hour meeting with me. You met the brief exactly and completely picked up on the fact that the team was already functioning well and that this was an enhancement rather than a development exercise. The team responded to your approachable, open and confident style, and this really helped them to relax and engage with the session.

I have heard only good things back from the team. They seem to have enjoyed it hugely and to be very appreciative of the work that went into making it 'for them'

I really benefited from your coaching sessions at a particularly challenging time dealing with a staff-related matter.I have been thinking carefully about what we discussed and looking at my notes. I feel that I am already starting to feel the benefits. The sessions have been enormously valuable; thanks again for everything.

I’ve been to lots of staff development and different training over the years and this just feels completely different. It feels really tailored and we can tailor it to suit whatever situation we face.

Tailored coaching, facilitation and workshops for universities.

There is a new need to enable university staff to work effectively, change processes, take risks and sometimes to think completely differently.  Often staff need to display skillsets they weren’t previously required to have, and to be brave enough to do so within an environment of uncertainty for them personally and professionally.

We regularly work together with many different university departments to develop management capability, forge resilience and help teams collaborate and communicate effectively. We deliver tailored workshops, coaching and facilitation and bring pragmatism to theories in order to equip university staff with different ways of thinking and an ability to succeed in a challenging and changing environment.
