All our programmes are highly experiential, practical and relevant learning experiences that draw from the latest communication, behavioural, psychological and self-awareness theories, approaches and techniques, which involve all the fundamental skills to be the best we can be at all times.
They are typically run as a combination of masterclasses, 1-to-1 coaching sessions and playback sessions, the duration of which depends on the specific programme and the organisational needs. The coaching sessions are a vital part of ensuring that the learning gets transferred from the masterclass environment to people’s roles. It is designed as a confidential space within which to further explore the things that come up in the group sessions, to deepen and strengthen skills and their application and to handle sensitive job related challenges or issues that the leaders may to feel comfortable bringing to the large group setting.
We draw extensively from a theory of human development, personality, and communication known as Transactional Analysis (TA) for the Communication aspects of the programmes. TA provides concepts that offer a simplicity in making the implicit explicit, and offers us the language to be able to describe behaviours (good and bad) without the need for any blame, shame or judgement. It can be learned and applied as tools for personal and professional growth and change. The underlying philosophy is one of mutual self-respect and caring and a belief in peoples’ ability to be responsible, think for themselves and make their own decisions.
Additionally, our programmes offer another perspective, a common language, a new way of looking at ourselves, our personality, our reactions, our behaviours and we explore what is working well and what may not be serving us as leaders.
