Developing Your Coaching Skills


Coaching is the quickest and most effective method for developing staff. It is the key tool for managers and leaders who want to motivate and support their team and develop new skills and confidence to improve performance and manage change.

We explore what we mean by coaching and the true purpose of coaching. We look at what a good coaching session looks like and what a not so good coaching session looks like. We explore the GROW Coaching Model and every attendee gets the chance to participate in at least three practical coaching sessions.

This one-day course will help managers and leaders at every level understand what effective coaching is while at the same time learn key coaching techniques that they can use in their everyday practice.

This one-day course is your answer. No matter what your current level is, you can teach yourself to be a really good presenter. Every aspect of presenting is covered, not only can you learn the nuts and bolts of putting a presentation together, but also the art of presentation performance.

Developing Your
Negotiation Skills

Developing Your Negotiation Skills

The ability to negotiate is crucial to business success today. Yet few of us are armed with the confidence, the skills or the qualities required for successful negotiation.

There is a belief that people are either good or bad at negotiation and little can be done to change that. There is also the belief that negotiation is an art rather than a science, and as a result people rely on gut instinct or intuition when they negotiate. Both these beliefs are myths.

This one-day course provides a clear, simple and effective approach and will equip participants with the tools and techniques to be more effective as a negotiator.

Managing Performance

Managing Performace

A robust performance management process is central to achieving high performance.

Setting SMART objectives that contain the “language of ownership”, monitoring performance both informally and formally, giving constructive feedback, knowing how to deal with under performance and holding an effective performance review meeting are essential skills for all managers.

This one-day virtual course will bring together the very best practice in performance management, enabling you to keep your performance management system and paperwork simple. This highly interactive virtual course will give you the confidence to sell performance management as a highly positive opportunity and encourage the very best performance from all your staff all day, every day.

Managing Change

Managing Change

The ability to cope with change is crucial to business and organisational success. To remain competitive in challenging times, organisations and the individuals within them have to adopt a positive attitude to change. Change should always be seen as an opportunity.

Changing how people think and what they do will always be a challenge because resisting change is just part of human nature.

Organisations seeking to change need to engage their people to not only be recipients of change but to be proactive in finding new ways of doing things. Because, at the end of the day, organisations don’t change – people change.

Train The Trainer

Traing the Trainer

The key purpose of a training event is to help people to learn. Learning is an active process – people learn best when they feel involved, can ask and answer questions, discuss, debate, try things out, work in teams, and reflect on and apply ideas. Great trainers understand how people learn, what stops them learning and how to create a stimulating learning environment. Great trainers are facilitators – they encourage and manage discussions, ask great questions, set up interesting activities and provide a truly engaging learning experience.

This practical-based, one-day programme is packed with tips and techniques to take your training to a whole new level. It is suitable for new and experienced trainers who want to avail of the latest thinking, delivery and facilitation approaches so that they can provide motivational, memorable and dynamic training courses.

This one-day course provides tips and proven techniques to confidently hold a challenging conversation.

Developing Your
Facilitation Skills


Group working is an essential part of modern organisational life and a group’s effectiveness is often greatly influenced by the ability of the facilitator working with the group. The facilitator acts as an enabler, bringing different people together to produce results greater than those that could be achieved individually.

This is one of our most popular one-day courses and is delivered in a highly interactive and engaging manner in a safe, non-judgmental environment. We will explore the science of facilitation and take part in a range of facilitation scenarios.
