Do any of these sound familiar?

  • You struggle to find, train and retain the right staff.
  • You invest time, money and energy in your people only to see them leave for another opportunity or to a competitor.
  • You feel frustrated at the time needed to get your team members to the standard of skill and competence you’d like them to be?
  • You are burning out with repetitive team underperformance.
  • You’re micro-managing instead of doing more rewarding work.
  • You need to develop yourself for your next career move.

Most people managers struggle with these questions. You are not alone, and we are here to help. We don’t just deliver training, we are committed to you.

Imagine how you would feel if…

  • You could trust your team to deliver high performance and results all the time. (A totally accountable team who take ownership for delivering excellence everyday)
  • You were less stressed out and anxious about the work your team is doing or the results they are achieving? (You experienced consistently lower levels of pressure and stress)
  • You freed up your time to work on high-value tasks instead of micro-managing crisis after crisis (Swapping mundane, repetitive tasks for engaging new projects)

“The content of the course was relevant and concise with a really easy to follow flow. The online experience was excellent, I could get through parts of the course as time allowed, and return to where I left off to continue right where I left off. My level of understanding on the topic has been greatly enhanced and I have managed to use the learnings day to day in my work. I would highly recommend this course! Thank you Reg”

“I highly recommend Reg and his Leadership & Management Development Training programme. I thoroughly enjoyed the training which provided me with great insights into my own levels of self awareness and the importance of emotional intelligence in enhancing the effectiveness of my leadership skills. A focus on effective communication & conflict resolution helped to give me fresh perspective on best practices in these area and gave me practical takeaways I could put to use straightaway. I believe this training had elevated my management competencies and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to refine or refocus their leadership skills.”
