Covid 19 - Our response to the current situation
With social distancing measures likely to be with us for some time, we are pleased to advise our customers that we are now delivering all our services virtually through applications such as Zoom and MS Teams. We have always been able to offer one-to-one and group coaching through this medium but we have extended this capability to the delivery of interactive workshops and action learning. Our clients have said how pleased they are that we have been able to offer continuity in the provision of learning events and how effective they are finding the new medium. Several clients, especially those working from multiple sites, have said they envisage virtual workshops to be an important part of learning and development long after the current crisis is over.
Workshops are now typically divided into two or three hour virtual sessions although we can vary this according to individual customer needs. Workshops retain the interactivity for which we are well known, with group discussions, syndicate work and one-to-one sessions with actor-facilitators, where included, forming the greater part of each short session.
One benefit of this new format has been the opportunity to include workplace learning as part of the experience, with participants being encouraged either to practise newly learned techniques to help consolidate learning or to conduct workplace research as an input into the following session.

Although based in Brighton, East Sussex, our consultants operate throughout the UK and overseas and we should be delighted to deliver our services at your premises, wherever you are located, or at a location of your choice. Some services, such as business coaching, can also be delivered via tele- or video conferencing, offering flexibility and providing both economic and environmental benefits.
We offer a wide range of programmes aimed at different levels of management from Management Skills for New Managers through to Strategic Thinking, Planning and Execution for more senior personnel. Our programmes encourage participants to reflect on their leadership styles and how they might apply their learning back in the workplace with their own teams.
Aimed at enhancing individual performance, these programmes build on the concepts of emotional intelligence and transactional analysis to help develop participants' communication skills in a variety of different situations. This suite also includes practical skills such as coaching, mentoring, facilitation, presentation and negotiation.
This suite of programmes covers basic project management skills and how to apply them to real-life projects, and the techniques needed to map, manage and improve processes using the widely accepted modelling standard, Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN). Programmes focus on applying the skills to each participant's own environment.
We provide coaching either as a stand alone service or as part of an integrated learning and development programme. Coaching can be provided face-to-face or via tele- or video conferencing. We also facilitate events such as team away-days, strategic and business planning workshops, and process mapping and improvement workshops.
