This workshop will take your delegates on a journey of self and team discovery to build trust, honesty, respect and better working relationships to dramatically enhance their performance. The workshop will enable delegates to identify their own strengths and weakness as well as understand their colleagues better and give their team purpose and focus. The group will collaboratively establish a positive plan of action to take forward. This workshop will also assist delegates in building their resilience to stress and help manage change professionally and productively.


This workshop will provide each team member with:

  • A better understanding of themselves and how they relate to others
  • A mapped out strategic vision and its pillars
  • A sense of direction and purpose
  • An understanding of how to create and sustain optimum performance within their team
  • The ability to effectively manage and adapt to change
  • A full 360 feedback and develop an action plan as a result

Please note, this course requires minimum written work and rather includes group discussions and exploratory activities and exercises for delegates.

How we deliver

Training can be delivered in either of the following ways:

  • Online

    Online training is ideal if you have staff in different geographical locations who have the same Microsoft or Adobe training requirements.

    Our expert trainers can deliver Watch and Learn sessions to up to 100 people. Alternatively, they can produce an interactive session that allows delegates to complete practical exercises within the Microsoft or Adobe apps of your choosing.

  • Face to face

    Choose from one or half day training sessions or our popular 90-minute Sprint sessions, which can be delivered in your offices or at another location of your choice.

    All we need is a room with a table and chairs and we look after the rest. We can even provide laptops and a projector should you not have spare IT equipment to use.
