WORKSHOP AND COAcHING COMBINATION: An Alternative to Training Programmes for Managers and Team Leaders

Given the current economic climate, it's more important than ever that you get the best possible return on your training investment.

Tracey has devised a unique programme, combining ¨in house¨ team workshops, looking at essential 'soft skills' for managers (but tailored to the specific needs of the organisation) with one-to-one coaching discussions for each delegate to follow up on any matters arising from the workshop and devise a personalised action plan to reinforce sustainable changes. Delegates are usually at Management level, but in smaller organisations, whole teams (including managers) have attended and reported concrete benefits.

Feedback has been unanimously positive. For further examples, please visit the ¨Testimonials¨ page.

¨Being part of a management team that had recently grown considerably, it was gratifying that our Directors invested in an afternoon out of the office so that we could explore our group dynamic and have frank discussions about motivating our teams. Tracey kept us focused, engaged (and often amused) throughout what, if we followed more traditional 'management training' could otherwise have been a long afternoon. Following this group session, which I found very enlightening, I was offered a one to one session with Tracey.

On a personal level it was so helpful to remove myself from the workplace for just an hour and speak to someone who could focus my perceived worries and help me to find positive changes by using excellent coaching techniques. Tracey was very welcoming and put me at my ease immediately, which resulted in me vocalising thoughts that were causing me concern and which I had not really acknowledged previously. Tracey guided me to reach conclusions as to how I could stop these concerns affecting my behaviour and impacting on others around me. By helping me to arrive at the positive changes I thought needed to be made, rather than simply telling me what I needed to do, Tracey enabled me to commit more fully to the process.

I left the session with a better understanding of how my behaviour can influence both my own team and other colleagues, and would recommend Tracey's coaching methods whole heartedly.'       Claire Kelly, Basel Trust
