Tailored Workplace Training: Unleashing Your Organisation's Full Potential

With the increased workload caused by the fast pace of workplace change, there is an understandable concern amongst senior leadership teams and HR departments around the issues of attracting and retaining key team players

Your teams are dealing with unprecedented change, including varied and complex work structures.

In recent years, significant cultural changes in the workplace have brought about several new challenges. For instance, the transition to hybrid working has increased workloads by around 20-30%.

Team leaders and HR departments are aware of the issues around helping teams to work well together cohesively and therefore reduce workload by :

> Addressing communication issues to reduce time wasted on miscommunication, excessive emails and online meetings.

> Resolving conflicts in a way that feels safe and collegial 

> Promoting effective collaboration by creating a ‘can do’ growth mindset to challenges, 

> Optimising team structures so leaders can set practical expectations without overwhelming their team. 

Organisational leadership programmes need to be personalised and include a strong bias towards resilience to deal with the aftermath of intense change and increased working pace.

There are several ways in which I can assist in providing an understanding of the issues that are identified and building a workable structure that will enhance employees’ motivation, job satisfaction, and commitment to work. 

Developing strategies to keep employees engaged and invested in their roles by creating a strong psychological contract between your organisation and its employees. This, in turn, will help to shape a positive organisational culture by defining and aligning core values, norms, and behaviours that align with the company’s mission and foster a productive and harmonious work environment.

What is critical to any intervention is to develop workloads that ensure they are aligned with employees’ abilities and needs to create a healthy work-life balance, which is critically important to those job-hopping Millennials.

These bespoke solutions are found by first recognising the real issues for your organisation and creating bespoke facilitation and training packages around these core issues.

Knowledgeable & passionate about personal growth and helping people to find ways to be their best selves. The sessions you ran were effective with rave reviews and attendance levels. I really appreciated the effort you put in to understand our business so the content was as relevant as it could possibly be. It felt like we had worked with you for much longer!

Adele recently did some training on mental resilience for Saunderson House and it was slick and inciteful, whilst also being extremely helpful.

Problems I solve...

Reducing stress in the workplace

Bespoke trainings are created to raise awareness around employee wellbeing so that managers can have confident conversations around stress.

Resilience strategies are designed and implemented which will benefit employee health and wellbeing.

Training that support employee wellbeing so that their productivity and role effectiveness remains consistent

Reducing stress in the workplace so that organisations retain high productivity and reduce presenteeism.  Increasing team resilience so that organisations have a better wellbeing strategy ROI.

Organisational, Team and Intrapersonal Resilience

Using the Organisational Resilience framework that I have developed so that we can step back and understand strategic overview by assessing the organisation’s goals, values and mission.

Taking a snapshot of “where are we now” in terms of the organisations wellbeing culture so that trainings can fill the gaps so that any time or financial budget is directed effectively.

Once the strategic overview is understood then a bottom up approach is used to ensure relevancy. 

Rather than initiating trainings from what we ‘think’ employees need; instead pulse surveys (5 weekly questions) dig deeper and training is bespoke, crafted in real time.

Efficacy is created by gaining strategic buy-in, promotion and belief from management teams before it is promoted company-wide so that engagement with the training is much higher

Resilience training develops consistently resilient senior managers so that they are then able to support their own teams who in turn support the organisations clients.

Mental Resilience for improved organisational productivity

By building workplace resilience colleagues are stronger and more empowered so that they can work with the high pressure and build endurance to deal with the fluctuating intensity of workloads. 

Organisational resilience agility and resilience is developed by increasing managers awareness around current behaviours and wellbeing practices.

Awareness creates change.

When team leaders are more aware of how they can be more effective at work will mean that whilst at work, they will be more efficient.

Powerful personal resilience develop intrapersonal skills so that managers can regulate their personal resilience, they can control the controllables and create their own work life boundaries which will mean that when they are at work they are more focused, creative and innovative.

How organisations can help stop zoning out at work

‘Presenteeism’ is zoning out at work or not fully performing whilst at work

Presenteeism affects the ability of people to learn and pick up new tasks/routines

Managers are feeling pressured and not looking after themselves, which will affect their job roles
