Free taster workshop

Do people ever behave in a way that you don’t like? Then join us for a free workshop over Zoom, ‘Dealing with negative behaviour’ on 3rd or 4th November 2022.

Our free sessions are really popular so we’re running two of them to accommodate everyone. Request your invite today.

The taster session is free, you'll learn something new and you'll get a feel for how the programme works. We typically have 100+ digital, product and technology leaders attend. So you'll be in good company and will meet people facing similar challenges to you.

What your teams will learn

1

Inspire everyone around you

Influence, persuade and show true leadership to other stakeholders, regardless of where you sit in the hierarchy

You’ll learn all the ins-and-outs of our exclusive storytelling, leadership and communication frameworks. There’s not much theory here – we focus on the practical and relevant things you need to do when working in a cross-functional team.

We’ll teach you all the best practices in our frameworks and give you loads of opportunities to practice in a safe environment. We’ll give you the confidence to be powerful leaders to colleagues, influencing and getting them to buy-in to what you’re saying.

2

Make teammates feel like heroes

Communicate in a way that makes everyone in your team feel unstoppable and enhances their performance

You’ll learn to bring out the best in everyone around you, working seamlessly together to achieve amazing outcomes. Team success depends on everyone bringing their A-game – and you can make this happen.

We’ll give you all the tools you need to avoid compromise and negotiate win-win outcomes; to create psychological safety for you and your teammates; and to build up rapport with colleagues so they feel you truly understand them.

3

Develop a powerful mindset

Feel unstoppable and take responsibility for your job and workplace relationships in a way you've never done before

You’ll learn to think powerfully so you can solve any problem. Watch your performance and enjoyment levels soar as you take 100% ownership of day-to-day challenges and actions.

We’ll build up your resilience so knock-backs feel like learning opportunities; get your empathy skills working on overdrive so you can always see things from other people’s perspectives; and get you able to reframe any situation so you can build up your resilience.

You'll start seeing increases in quality and velocity of team output, staff retention, morale and loyalty within teams. As you do, you’ll be wondering how your teams ever got anything done before. Oh, and you’ll be the envy of your peers as they see the transformed culture and performance increases.

How you’ll learn

Our People Skills as a Service® curriculum, exclusive frameworks and interactive learning experiences transform behaviour and create high performing teams.

team

Bite-sized training

A one-hour interactive session every 2 weeks, for your entire team. Focus on one skill per session, with lots of practice and group work.

Every bite-sized training session is experiential, immersive and interactive and focuses on one learning outcome.

We teach the best practices from our industry-leading frameworks and give you loads of opportunities to practice and learn from each other in a safe environment:

  • This is team learning in action – half of what you learn will be from each other and the ideas you generate together (the other half will be from us!). And with your whole team involved, you’ll all be going on the learning journey together
  • We encourage everyone to test drive their new skills day-to-day and we review how it all went each session. Each training module builds on previous learnings, bringing about long-lasting behaviour change

We also run 2 x additional bonus training days outside of the core curriculum, to deepdive on specific topics of your choice (and/or to allow new joiners to catch up).

coaching

Leadership coaching

One-to-one support for senior team and rising stars. Non-judgemental sessions with a coach help you solve challenges and lead by example.

We run 1-to-1 coaching sessions on the same day as the training, getting key team members to drive through learnings into their teams day-to-day (we need key people to lead by example to achieve long-lasting transformation).

Our coaching sessions unlock people’s potential, maximising their professional (and personal) performance. During our sessions we:

  • Work with coachees to set and achieve goals (to which we hold them accountable) in a safe and judgement-free environment
  • Facilitate coachees to describe their challenges/ideas and then come to the best conclusions themselves (we don’t teach or provide answers)
  • Help coachees take full ownership of difficult situations and personal blockers, reframing challenges so they seem solvable

Coaching is different to both mentoring (giving advice based on experience) and counselling (recognising and analysing problems). We don’t teach coachees; instead we get them to learn.

ongoing

Embedding skills

Building momentum with accountability, access to learning resources, and regular conversations about what everyone's learning.

Our comms between training sessions cross-pollinate learnings amongst the entire team. With videos, copies of our frameworks, regular tips-of-the day, quizzes and follow-up messages, we continually engage with training participants to:

  • Remind everyone of key learning outcomes
  • Encourage them to put these learnings into action
  • Share people’s learnings, behaviour changes and successes with the group

We put all participants into accountability groups, with group members holding each other to account over agreed actions and homework in between training sessions.

We also keep in regular contact with people in leadership roles (many of whom we’ll be coaching), making sure they’re putting into practice what they’re learning and leading by example.

As we progress through the programme we get regular feedback on how confidently everyone can apply what they’re learning. We feedback improvement scores to you.

Works with remote and hybrid teams

All elements of our People Skills as a Service® programme have been designed from the ground-up to be delivered remotely for either remote or hybrid teams.

We’re experts at using video conferencing and remote collaboration tools (especially Zoom) to present, facilitate and share.

Whether your teams are distributed or sit in one office, developing everyone’s people skills is within your reach.

You may have a few questions...

Who should enrol on the programme?

Anyone in your business that leads, works with, or works in digital product teams. Our programme creates long-lasting behaviour change, so it’s important your teams and their leaders go on the journey together.

How many people should we enrol?

You’ll need 40+ people to get going with a private programme. If you have 10-39 people then you can join the public programme (i.e. with teams from other businesses). We don’t usually take bookings for <10 people.

What are we committing to?

The programme runs in 3-month chunks and you pay every 3 months upfront. There’s no contract so you’re free to leave any time. The full programme is 6 months, with the option to extend to 9 or 12 months.

What are the programme dates?

Training and coaching run on the same day and time every other week. You can choose your preferred day of the week and start date. For public programmes, we allocate the programme dates.

How do you track programme success?

We track confidence against key learning outcomes with regular surveys. We can also help you with indirect measures around staff retention, team output, capacity increases and wellbeing.

Can the curriculum be customised?

We adjust all examples and exercises so they’re relevant to your teams’ day-to-day activities. Each module builds on the last one, so large-scale customisation is difficult.

How do you deliver the programme?

We’ve designed everything from the ground-up to be delivered remotely for either remote or hybrid teams. We can make minor adjustments to also deliver sessions in-person.

Do we get access to your frameworks?

We have a number of industry-leading frameworks. During the programme, you get on-demand access to these (plus updates free-of-charge) to help you implement your new skills day-to-day.

Do you do online courses or e-learning?

We don’t, sorry. We’re strong believers in the power of classroom training (delivered IRL or over Zoom) so you can interact and innovate with each other. Peer learning should account for half of what you learn.

Do you do one-off training or coaching engagements?

We run one-off workshops which are ideal for your next team day. Our workshops bring your team together for a positive and fun experience.

How much does the programme cost?

Pricing depends on your team size and a couple of other variables. Get in touch and after a quick chat we can give you a quote. Our programmes are up to 60% lower cost than standard industry pricing for training and coaching.
