tailored fit

I offer a range of bespoke skills development workshops that are tailored to suit your needs and audiences.

This may involve delivery of my own programmes, creating new content or using existing client content to refresh and reinvigorate the learning and development process.

 

Here are some examples of my recent work:

Executive Awareness Session

A practical session to raise awareness and educate the Executive team on the background, context and content of a Leadership development programme being rolled out across their organisation to middle/ senior leaders. Worked in partnership with the Executive team to let them experience the ‘Importance of Vision’ exercise activity as part of the programme and then facilitated a conversation to identify and agree their role in supporting this initiative in future.

Problem Solving 

Designed, developed and delivered a participative and practical workshop underpinned with robust theoretical knowledge and research. To ensure embedding of the learning post workshop participants are encouraged to draw on their own experiences, align with the tools and techniques and then relate this to actual challenges/ issues they wish to resolve. Personal action planning is positively encouraged and supported as a key output of the workshop.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Develop your problem solving skills by learning how to tackle issues and challenges using a solution focused problem-solving process: Define (Why?), Discover and Develop (What), Implement (How), and Evaluate
  • Learn and practice a range of tools and techniques to develop, decide and deliver the right solution every time.
  • Learn and practice how to apply a review practice that allows you to learn from your mistakes and successes.
  • Develop a personal action plan for developing your Problem Solving skills

Mentoring Skills

Mentoring is a learning relationship between two people. It requires trust, commitment and emotional engagement. It involves listening, questioning, challenge and support.

This is a participative and practical workshop underpinned by the most up-to-date research on mentoring. Reference is constantly made to ‘real’ situations and the workshop is run in the ‘mentoring mode’. Participants are encouraged to draw on their own experiences and relate this to mentoring activity. Personal action planning is positively encouraged and supported a key output of the workshop.

Learning Outcomes:

  • To define what is Mentoring and what is the Mentoring relationship
  • To define the benefits of Mentoring for the organisation and the individuals involved
  • To understand and be able to demonstrate how to apply the process of Mentoring
  • To develop and practice the key skills of Mentoring and assess your own capability
  • Be aware of specific organisational issues surrounding mentoring i.e. Business impact
  • Develop a personal action plan for developing your Mentor skills
