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.
The whole structure and presentation was excellent. It gave me a lot think about with the role I am currently in and things I can implement for future.
The whole experience, booking, looking at handouts, meeting the other delegates and the content was all delivered in a fun & educational manner. Well Done David Ross!
We particularly enjoyed learning how to choose the appropriate leadership style according to the situation. We were also able to apply what we had learnt from the courses immediately to our day-to-day work, for example in the Presentation Skills & Techniques course we learnt how to create and present memorable content to engage an audience who have mixed learning styles.
The content of the course was very helpful and I will definitely be doing some of the exercises with my team at the next opportunity. I enjoyed interacting with the group and sharing experiences and knowledge.
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.
