New Course – The Leaders of the Future
Changing Organisational Culture to Generate High Performance
The demand for change in business practice has never been greater than it is today. And the fact that the traditional culture of businesses has to evolve is hardly questioned now. The dot.coms have shaken up the way things have been done and are helping to redefine the relationship between organisations and their employees.
In doing so, they are reaching into reservoirs of previously untapped performance. Graduates typically fought for placements with blue-chip corporations. Now many of them dream of careers with organisations such as Google (Alphabet), Facebook, or the like who are doing things differently and pledging to provide a meaningful and exciting journey for their employees.
Furthermore, these new-generation leaders will indisputably create the conditions for a high-performance culture. So, this represents the next evolution of business, the reconnecting of business to its purpose, to its reason for being – after all, don’t all businesses exist to serve a need?
The evolutionary journey of our species has reached the stage at which the hierarchies of the past are being replaced by a new form of devolved leadership and collective responsibility.
What are the implications for organisations whose leaders are not changing with the times we now live in?
This One-Day workshop will set explore the reasons why all organisations need to embrace a new way of doing things, adopt a new leadership style and how it is a triple win for people, planet, and profit.
Early Time Management strategies were 1-D and all about getting our “To Do” list done. Today we our World is 3-D so how to stay ahead rather than catch up? Here, you will learn HOW in videos and activities for you to complete to achieve Time Mastery.
This programme is in 10 Modules that can be delivered over two days, or broken down to fit in with you.
Effective Influencing Skills
Now, more than ever before, personal effectiveness determines the quality of our achievements and relationships. The concept of power and authority that position / roles / job titles give to individuals has declined and in all of our work environments, our personal success depends largely on our ability to positively influence people – to achieve our objectives through others and to do so while building, or at least, not weakening our relationships.
This workshop introduces you to a highly user-friendly model of personal influence behaviours and demonstrates how the model can be applied in a large number of situations. The session will help you to become more aware of how you currently influence others, identify your strengths for further refinement and explore those alternatives that you under-use or avoid. As a result, you will enhance your flexibility to act in the most appropriate and effective way.
Handling Difficult Situations
This workshop is ideally suited to all those expected to effectively handle conflict with customers and / or team members and want to feel more confident and informed in doing so. The workshop is structured so that delegates increase their confidence in identifying and resolving conflict. The emphasis is on taking away useful tools and techniques that can be readily applied in the workplace and life in general.
Coaching for Leaders
Whether you’re a manager trying to develop your people, helping people with their careers or you are developing your own career, you can have a more effective and positive impact on the business by operating more as a “Coach” than as a “Manager.”
A study carried out in America, by Bersin & Associates, showed that organisations with senior leaders who coach effectively, frequently improve their business results by 21%, compared to those who never coach.
If you are up for the challenge, your people, the business and your career will all benefit from you operating in a “Coaching” mindset. Leaders will be developed and challenged in a way that realistically builds new skills and enables them to learn from experiences. In the process, your own career will also blossom if you are known to be a good developer of people – a critical skill for long-term success.
During this one-day workshop we will discuss the benefits of coaching, how to integrate this with your current role and how effective coaching empowers individuals and teams to achieve greater results so your Company can lead the way in its field.

Six Thinking Hats
In this workshop, we explore Dr Edward de Bono’s Six Hats theory – which he claims is the first new way of thinking to be developed for 2,400 years – can be used to cut the length of meetings, take the egos out of business and help people to reach better decisions.
“Thinking is the ultimate human resource. Yet we can never be satisfied with our most important skill. No matter how good we become, we should always want to be better.” – Edward de Bono –
The Six Thinking Hats theory presents a simple but effective way to become a better thinker, separating thinking into six distinct modes, identified with six coloured “thinking hats”:
“Putting on” a hat focuses thinking; “switching” hats redirects thinking. With the different parts of the thinking process thus clearly defined, discussions can be better focuses and more productive. Using real-life situations as examples, we create scenarios that show how the effective use of “thinking hats” helps us to focus our thinking more clearly, lead to more creative thinking and improve communication and thus decision making.
Dr de Bono’s concepts are applied by some of the world’s largest corporations. Six Thinking Hats clearly illustrates how his ideas have proven to be essential in their management development and techniques. FIND OUT MORE

Beyond Positive Thinking
“WORK is love made visible”, wrote Kahlil Gibran. Everybody can be an artist, everybody is creative. This workshop focuses on how to follow your passions, be professional and achieve peak performance.
People often take three steps towards pursuing their vocation: they focus on their values, vision and visible results. They then perform creative work in their chosen profession. Soul wisdom is vital, and so is street wisdom. We need to achieve the right balance between pursuing our mission and paying the bills. This workshop explores how to make this happen; we show you how to clarify your values and translate them into a clear vision and produce visible results.

Mind Maps can be applied in a variety of ways including: – Preparing notes, Planning, Revision for examinations and Projects. This workshop gives an opportunity to explore where you are with mind mapping, and how it can be of benefit to you and your organisation.
Most of us forget what we note down because we use only a tiny fraction of our brain during the note-taking process. To make good notes, we have to break with tradition and use both the left and right sides of our cortex, as well as the fundamental memory principles.
During the workshop, we show you how to take a blank sheet of paper and use a Key Memory Image to summarise the central theme of the notes you are making and then, from this central image, develop a series of connecting lines on which are written, or drawn, the Key Image Words or actual images of the main sub-areas and sub-themes you wish to note and remember. In this way, we can build up a multi-dimensional, associative, imaginative and colourful Mind Map memory note of everything we wish to note down and remember.
Noting in this way, you will not only remember almost immediately and totally everything you write down because of the application of the Memory Principles, but you will also find that the approach allows you to understand, analyse and think about whatever it is you are noting, while at the same time giving you more time to pay attention to what is going on around you.
