Think, take part and sit back in a tailored-to-you session, drawing people out of comfort zones to un-pick tangles and see fresh choices. Our post-event feedback shows how even the most reluctant get on board!
When the housing management arm of a local authority needed to reassess priorities ahead of a stringent external audit:
Their (volunteer) board of 8 needed to unite with a heightened focus, by developing their leadership and united front during an away day.
They adopted coaching techniques and gained a greater understanding of team dynamics.
They bonded more than usual, explored their strategic priorities and set clear ongoing actions, individually and as a united team.
When an international airport company was implementing their new company-wide financial reporting system:
Their 11 Finance managers needed to generate ideas for leading changes, both within their teams and with internal customers.
After 2 days of idea-generating and learning, they better understood how to identify and use the psychology around resistance to change.
They could then implement more comprehensive internal communication required to support the system change.
When two organisations needed to work together but were coming from different, sometimes obstructive, visions and cultures:
Their 25 staff needed a uniting programme that would aid mutual understanding, boost learning and confidence.
They spent workshop time acknowledging skills and skill gaps, comparing strategic intentions, exploring needed actions, behaviours and accountability and examining resourcing and language patterns.
They fed back that ‘It brought energy to the conversation and was facilitated in a very lively and engaging way that made the whole room feel comfortable!’
When a college needed management training, but on a tight budget and nothing seemed available for their sector:
Their diverse middle management team needed a bespoke programme. They were consulted on the design at every stage, regarding the learning approach and subject matter.
A 5-Pillar programme to up-skill them in the limited time and budget, supporting them externally but being managed internally, had follow-through activities to embed learning.
When a property consulting firm needed to unite small teams across Europe and for them to pick up skills quickly:
Their 17 staff needed a focused addition to their away day that was engaging and skill-building.
They experienced activities covering rapport-building and personal effectiveness and marketing psychology.
The animated selfies, a record of their workshop, showed the integration of cultures and energies.
