Developing communication skills

We help you bring your key messages to life in every part of your organisation by equipping your leaders and line managers to be more confident and skilful in engaging their stakeholders.

Employees consistently tell us their preferred way of learning about the things that matter is from their boss. Yet managers, often technically gifted in their field, get promoted into roles with neither the skills nor development opportunities to truly engage, inspire and motivate their teams.

Here’s how we help:

With communications coaching, training and tools we develop your leaders and practitioners to successfully land the messages that deliver action.

Executive coaching

Having advised blue-chip boards, our executive coaches are both highly skilled and valued.

We establish your unique needs to determine your coaching match.

With strategic and operational breadth, spanning multiple industries, we’re bound to have an executive communications and engagement coach that can help you.

Skills development

With decades of communications know-how we offer a comprehensive series of proven workshops which can be delivered face-to-face or virtually – and mixed and matched to meet your precise needs. From learning how to communicate lasting change to presentation skills or becoming a better facilitator, our workshops provide all the tips, tricks and techniques your leaders and line managers need to get their people thinking, feeling and doing things differently.

Tools

Already in the hands of more than 30,000 professionals, our pocket book ‘How to be a better communicator’ is an example of the types of practical tools we can produce to help your people overcome all kinds of communication challenges.

From ‘how to’ help sheets to more comprehensive handbooks, for example on delivering change, we can help you identify and develop the right tools to support better communications.
