What we do
Everything we do is about encouraging managers, leaders and key team members to consider the power and agency they have to deliver at the highest level.
We’re chosen repeatedly by many of the UK’s leading employers.
It opened my eye in the way I communicate to others and that I should think about what and how I say things, which I found extremely helpful.
Trainers were very knowledgeable and facilitated the courses in a fun and enjoyable way.
Following the courses, the team got together, competed presentations showing what we learnt, how this will effect our roles moving forward and also how this effects the long term plans of the business. We also discussed our own communication styles and how we could better improve the communication as a team and across the business.
I enjoyed carrying out the training with Impellus as it was very informative and the trainers were very knowledgeable in their subjects. The interactive nature of the training courses was very useful as it allowed me to engage with others from different industries, therefore helping me to view situations from a different perspective.
I found the structure of the course very good and enjoyable. I thought the interaction was brilliant between everyone.
