Resilience & Agility



Being aware of our typical responses to situations and practicing positive techniques are the starting points for learning to choose how we respond to challenges.  Using stress positively can be hugely empowering – knowing we absolutely have choices in everything we do.  Typical content includes:

  • The difference between stress and pressure
  • Establishing our purpose and values
  • Identifying our triggers and own limiting beliefs
  • NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) techniques to help with decision making

We all have our preferred thinking preferences which enable us to process information and make decisions.  Learning how to be more agile and utilise different thinking preferences can improve our flexibility which will in turn provide opportunities for different results.  Remember – if we do what we’ve always done, we’ll get what we’ve always got…  Typical content includes:

  • Insights Discovery
  • Jungian Preferences & Insights 4-SITE model of thinking styles
  • Practicing different techniques to develop flexibility
  • Recognising the benefits of different thinking styles in teams

Optimisation of People & Performance


Managing people is one of the most challenging aspects of management and leadership.  Utilising your previous learning from Insights Discovery, you will learn techniques to positively flex your style.  Using Forum Theatre with actors, enables delegates to see how ‘not to do it’ and then direct a sketch using the techniques learnt on the training.  The actors then facilitate small groups to practice the skills learnt during the day – enabling an increase in confidence and the chance to rehearse in a safe environment ahead of the real thing!  Typical content includes:

  • Insights Discovery
  • Recognising the impact of our leadership style on others
  • Techniques for coaching and challenging/improving performance
  • The use of positive and proactive language
  • Setting of outcome focused objectives
  • Practicing the techniques to improve confidence


Managing and Inspiring People Virtually


Since the middle of March this year we’ve seen a shift to greater levels of remote, flexible, and home working.  This provided an opportunity to shift my delivery to Zoom and also the inspiration for this new course.  Containing key messages from other courses, this is a short 3-hour course, delivered remotely with lots of interactive discussion and activities. 

It is not a webinar, so, therefore, is limited to 6 delegates to ensure the session is as close to a training session as possible – conversational and two way. 

The content includes:

  • Reflecting on your leadership behaviours and how they impact others
  • Considering how you behave under pressure
  • Exploring the human impact of remote working
  • Recognising the importance of social interaction
  • Reflecting on the impact of change on people
  • Identifying the behaviours we will need to model to inspire our teams and build trust
  • Reinforcing the team purpose and managing by outcome-focused objectives
  • Considering how we can be more productive and not just ‘busier’
  • Inspiring and motivating others through coaching
