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.
What I enjoyed the most was meeting other people from all sorts of different companies, and how well we all seemed to get on in the break-out rooms!
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 really enjoyed the challenge of putting myself in another's shoes and contemplating situations in which I could use the skills of each course. It was also fascinating to hear the different views and opinions of others on the courses, and the expertise of each of the instructors. Thank you very much Impellus!
This was an excellent training course and was delivered brilliantly. I was engaged the whole time and I have really taken on board good tips and strategies that I can use in my practice. Thank you.
I found that I have a better understanding of my management style and where I could be improving and adapting my style. And also to better understand which approaches are best for what kind of situation.
