Staff Development

  • Is your role staff and leadership development?
  • Are you looking for a ‘people-skills’ course that will improve self and social awareness in your staff?
  • Is it important that the training you offer your staff is robust and rigorous, founded in existing and on going research?
  • Do you want these skills to be sustainable – not techniques to be adopted, but values and attitudes that can be harnessed?
  • Would you like a workshop that is interactive, inclusive and gives your staff an opportunity to learn about themselves and each other in a challenging and supportive environment?
  • Would you like the training that you offer your staff to be directly linked to the context of your workplace, to ensure that it’s relevant and realistic?

When I was a Staff Developer, these are the questions I asked Freelance trainers.  I have designed and delivered hundreds of people skills workshops for many organisations, some of which are listed below.  If you don’t see what you want, give me a call.
