SOFT SKILLS WORKSHOPS

 

You are making progress along your career path. You have mastered the practical aspects of how to get things done and meet the expectations of the organisation. Now you are gaining higher visibility in the business and handling complex challenges.

At this level, managing successfully requires the smart use of a range of more complex skills which are more intuitive, subtle and require discretion to be applied.
The Soft Skills suite covers 60 strategic tools with which to get results within a fixed time frame.

Objective setting, Leading a Project Team, Stakeholder Management are examples

The key to making Soft Skills deliver optimal outcomes for you is to use them in tandem with your unique management style which is just one of the takeaways from this workshop…blending skills with strategy.

    Coaching Now

    I came to Coaching after working for several years in the Corporate Training field. 

    Many of the skills and experiences I gathered as a trainer were useful for our Coaching sessions, sometimes as a basis for role play and other times because the content illustrated specific situations that we were reviewing. 

    Bringing your experiences to life in this way can be helpful and introducing these tools into our Coaching conversation helps to pinpoint issues and cast light on your experiences.

    WfH: THE
    PODCAST

    Responding to Disruption

    Of all the upheavals created by Covid 19, the most visible and perhaps the most unexpected was the overnight removal of business activity from the corporate workplace to the living rooms of its employees.

    Working from Home (WfH) as it became known, happened so fast and so smoothly that there wasn’t time to weigh up the pro’s and con’s of this move…good or bad. When given the go-ahead, employees undertook the biggest upheaval to hit the world of work since the invention of the printing press…the transformation of working from home being an occasional occurrence to it becoming the norm

    Our monthly podcast explores the experience of people who are taking the opportunity to make the Change which WfH made possible as meaningful and innovative as it can be


    Ideas, and experiences to make WFH work for you and your family.

    THE NEXT LEADER IS YOU

    Your personal management style is, in time, what you will develop and deliver to add to the blend of your organisations’ leadership capability. But delivering may not always be the same as leading and getting along with your peers isn’t the same as managing them.

    You may discover that what you’ve been doing well as you have moved up in your career is not necessarily how you will be expected to do things in your new role in senior management.

    It’s the biggest issue brought up in my Coaching Sessions because it takes time to build and adjust to the expectations of Senior Leadership. Working with an  Executive Coach and exploring your own authentic style can be helpful.
