A new course called Smart Coaching at Work is soon to be launced and has been accredited by the CPD Registration Service. It is designed for managers, trainers and HR practitioners who want to build on their existing people skills and develop some new ones, and discover how to get more discretionary effort being applied at work by your employees and boosting performance. We make life easier, creatively, which makes us a little bit different.
