Workshops are available on various topics, please get in touch for more information or to discuss a bespoke brief for your team.
Coaching skills for managers: When the pressure is on to meet targets and managers are rushed off their feet, coaching is usually the first task to get dropped. Yet coaching is essential to building successful teams. Coaching can even be seen as fluffy and unnecessary. Even if your management team understands the importance of nurturing the best out of their team, coaching can often be done in an unstructured and ineffective manner. This coaching skills for managers training course will help develop the coaching skills of supervisors, team leaders and managers and ensure you deliver a successful coaching as part of their day to day skill-set.
Workplace wellness: is about organisations and individuals taking a proactive approach to ensuring the health and wellbeing of their workforce. By focusing on the wellness of employees, organisations can help prevent issues with mental and physical health, reducing stress levels and absenteeism and ultimately improving performance. Raising awareness will help encourage people to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing. Therefore, this course is aimed at anyone that needs to develop a heightened awareness of workplace wellness for both the organisation and themselves.
Developing resilience: Help ensure your employees have the resilience required to cope with workplace challenges. Resilience is the ability to cope with the challenges, problems and set-backs we face in life, and to become stronger because of them. It relies on different skills and draws on various sources of help, including rational thinking skills, physical and emotional health, and an individuals relationship with those around them. In the increasingly complex context of today’s working environment, the resilience of individuals, and organisations becomes critical for business success.
Stress management: This course has been developed to help participants identify the causes and effects of stress and to assist them in developing the skills required to manage stress in their own life. The word ‘stress’ is used to describe the physical and/or emotional response to the demands and pressures that modern living means we come under from time to time. Stress can be a positive thing, which drives us on and helps us to grow, develop and be stimulated. However, when stress reaches a certain level, it can overcome a person’s ability to cope and can impact on their physical and mental health. The focus is on the positive things that they can do to make changes in their life which will reduce the impact that ”bad” stress places on them.
Effective communication skills: Being able to communicate effectively is a cornerstone to building positive working relationships; it will enable you to build rapport, develop relationships and feel comfortable and confident around others. People who can communicate effectively are great at getting others to open up and discuss feelings and emotions. They are able to respond appropriately during difficult conversations and feel less pressure when communicating with superiors and peers. Perhaps you’re looking to improve the performance of a team that lacks communication skills and is unable to work together effectively. Or you want to include communication training as part of management development.
Assertiveness in action: Being assertive is being able to express yourself with confidence without having to resort to passive, aggressive or manipulative behaviour. By developing assertiveness and becoming aware of our own strengths and weaknesses, we can modify our behaviour for greater effectiveness in social and business interactions.
