“I am really pleased with how you engaged the team, I believe the way you pitched the workshop was brilliant and as discussed I am really keen to revisit this because I believe we have set a platform to implement, monitor & systemise planning activities, which I am very hopeful over a period of time will show up a lot of opportunities to increase efficiency”.

Greg Stuart, Regional Manager, Competenz

“I got a lot from the workshop and my work is now beginning to reflect the changes I’m making… it’s a process. You are a very natural facilitator and that showed through. I found it very easy to take part in your workshop“.

Our workshops


This half-day workshop is for team leaders and teams who would like some support to enliven their organisation’s values in their daily work. It covers key aspects of values-based leadership and teamwork and allows participants to develop a set of ground-rules for their teams.



Research shows that the vast majority of Outlook users utilise Outlook to around 10% of its capability. Essentially we know enough about it to get by. Feedback from our 1 day workshop shows that people are seeing significant gains in productivity and job satisfaction.



Our WorkSmart workshops are based upon the work of leaders in the field of effectiveness and productivity. Let us help you refine your processes, master your email, plan and deliver your workload KPI’s, set goals (nail them) and reduce the time it takes to do it all.

Emotional Intelligence

Managers trained in EI deliver twice the profit than those who are not.

Emotional Intelligence is how somebody manages their personality to be both personally and interpersonally effective. It’s a top predictor of high potential – 90% of top performers are high in EI.

Like any skill, Emotional Intelligence can be developed and it takes practice. Noticing and managing our attitudes, emotions and behaviour in a changing social context is a continual process. We are able to unlock sustainable change by identifying the attitudes that underpin an individual’s thinking and feeling, which then drives their behaviour.
