All our programmes are developed in consultation with our clients and are carefully structured to meet their organisational needs.

Why Come to Us?
Does your management team have the skills and expertise to operate successfully in today’s business environment? Does your management team need to sharpen up their team building skills? Does management need to communicate more effectively with the rest of the organisation? Have you got staff who are moving into management or team leading roles in the near future who may be technically accomplished but don’t have the required management skills to lead, manage, inspire, coach, delegate, enthuse, guide and direct.
Companies we work with often have to overcome the following issues:
- People working across departments/silos
- Under-performing Teams
- Management don’t have the necessary skill set
- A need to identify the appropriate style of management
- Uncertainty, change in the 2008 world’s stock markets, recession, unemployment…
We will discuss your organisation’s needs and begin to create a tailor-made management training and development solution . Our programmes are designed to compliment your internal development processes – we believe this is the best way to achieve desired outcomes. These courses are designed to meet the requirements of different types of managers – be they new managers, trainee managers or senior managers with years of experience looking to freshen up their approach. Our philosophy is based on a blended learning approach to enhancing performance which is centred on experiential learning ce the concepts built into our management training and management development programmes.
We couldn’t put it any better than this:
“Tell me, and I will forget.
Show me, and I may remember.
Involve me, and I will understand.” – Confucius
Management Development Challenges
Our training courses are designed to have a ‘real world’ focus which aim to develop skill sets that are relevant to management and leadership in today’s workplace. We are fortunate to be located on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park and outdoor challenges can play a central role in our training depending on client needs. Not all programmes are based outdoors. In fact, the famous Llanelli Scarlets rugby team actually completed a one-day goal setting programme entirely indoors; likewise, we are currently delivering a two-day classroom-based creativity workshop to Panasonic. Our management training programmes help develop the whole person. In this context personal self-development can be defined as the identification of abilities that make the manager more self reliant and better equipped when returning to the workplace.
