Success stories

Improved performance feedback

At a leading financial institution, we are working to enhance the skills of 2000 participants in the delivery of formal and informal performance management conversations.

This 14-month programme of work, designed by our Head of Perform, Roger Ayres, is being rolled out by our team of 14 skilled facilitators, all experienced in providing in-the-moment feedback, facilitation and roleplay. This programme aligns a move to shift the culture at the firm, including the adoption of a new set of values.

Roleplay to select future partners

At a global law firm, we provide roleplay at an assessment centre for future partners as well as ongoing support for a broader cohort of leaders developing communication skills.

Particularly when working with future partners, it is essential that our facilitators have the skills to offer detailed, in-the-moment feedback and that they understand how to demonstrate these skills within a business context.

Also, our core leadership programme, designed to help participants maximise their impact at work, focuses on the use of mindset, body language and voice for communication as well as techniques to influence others. This was rated the firms’ most popular programme in the last 15 years by participants.

New starters get behavioural training

One of the ‘big four’ global professional services networks, relies on us to provide trainers and facilitators for their annual training for graduate entrants in the UK. Each year, we co-run a five week intensive training programme so new joiners build behavioural and technical skills to succeed in the workplace.

We work with new entrants working across all service lines – audit, tax, consultancy – and we work on an ad hoc basis to provide additional support on leadership skills and coaching across the business.
