Action learning

These structured sessions can be run with four to seven people. They support group members to explore problems from fresh perspectives. These sessions help to build a strong team that works together to solve difficult and complex problems. We expect to run at least two session before the group are in a position to manage this process for themselves.

Personality profiling tools

These tools provide a framework to reflect on personal effectiveness and impact. They help managers to analyse their working relationships, to understand why some are easier than others and how to adapt to different styles. They also highlight potential strengths and weaknesses.

We are able to facilitate the use of a number of well-recognised and respected profiling tools. We can recommend the tool best suited for your needs, introduce the tool to managers and facilitate feedback and action planning.
