Personal Effectiveness Training


Personal Effectiveness Training

The Personal Effectiveness training programmes we design are bespoke to each organisation and participants’ individual development needs.

We place great emphasis on individuals taking personal responsibility for their own development. The personal development activities we design and deliver centre on work-place assignments, 360 degree feedback, facilitated workshops, action learning groups, one to one coaching, e-learning and the development and review of personal action plans.

Here is a selection of the personal effectiveness training we deliver and which we can tailor to your organisation:

Self Awareness

We often begin a programme of personal effectiveness development by increasing individual’s self awareness of their own impact on others. We run workshops such as Understanding Personal Preferences with Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) to help individuals understand their own strengths and development areas.
