Thank You - for checking out at my profile.
You're probably wondering why on earth you should take my online courses, or even work with me more directly.
Well, I've had the privilege to have been a learning and development professional for close to 30 years now. In that time I've worked with a very wide range of organisations and people from all walks of life, and many different countries and backgrounds.
My focus is on helping people learn skills, techniques and behaviours that will add practical value in their everyday lives. That's typically in their business and professional lives, yet often the skills and concepts are very applicable to more personal development outside of work. What matters to me is that the learning is not simply just theoretical, but practically applicable. Knowing stuff is good, but we get improved results and personal growth when we actually apply our learning and do something with it. That's where we really add value.
In support of this approach, I have a lot of experience to back it up. I have for 20 years held senior management positions in both public and private sector organisations. I have also run my own consultancy and people development businesses for almost 19 years working with many global brands in a variety of business sectors, family businesses, business start ups and individuals seeking to develop their own skills and abilities.
With all this experience and expertise I have come to realize that a great deal of successful business and people management comes down to effective communication. This may appear to be an obvious, straight forward insight, yet the day to day reality is frequently much more challenging. My favourite quote sums up this challenge nicely;
'the single biggest problem with communication is the illusion it is taking place'
George Bernard Shaw.
The ability to communicate clearly and effectively with people is so crucial to success in any endeavour. Whilst we say we understand that, most of us take communication for granted, and it is often a big mistake that leads to errors, misunderstandings, wasted effort, poor performance and even conflict.
Improving your communication and people management skills can be one of the best investments you'll ever make.
