Designed as an added-value offering for clients of the luxury retreat.
Assertive communication and emotional intelligence
Career progression, team harmony, customer service delivery and sales effectiveness all benefit from communication skills informed by neuroscience, designed to resolve conflict, and forge emotional connections that count. Learn to give powerful and persuasive business presentations with purpose, passion and panache.
Storytelling and listening for improved business performance
Building change and stress resilience in your organisation
In a world of constant change and growing demands, clever and deft planning, implementing and coping with change – at organisation, team and individual levels – is vital. Become swimmers not sinkers.
Unleashing your creative imagination
Drawing on insights from Roger Oesch’s explorer, artist, judge and warrior archetypes, Edward de Bono’s lateral thinking and even insights from Leonardo da Vinci (perhaps the greatest innovator of all time), your team will discover how to innovate together, and keep your business ahead of the game. Whatever your challenge: sales, service, product, brand, process ….
Introducing virtues-based leadership
Learn how leading companies have benefitted from making virtues-based decisions. How disconnects between stated values and actual behaviours may be prevented. How intrinsic motivation is activated.
Making right decisions and solving problems without agonising
Apply a framework and use templates for solving problems and making decisions quickly and accurately. Mobilise the logical, intuitive and emotional in teams and individually.
Move beyond forced compliance to introduce sustainability practices across the entire business-chain, learn to traverse the ever growing web of interconnectedness, and latch on to practices that work internally and externally. Learn nature’s lessons.
Managing your time and energy with ever-increasing workloads
No sooner is one issue handled than another two appear. In a world of sometimes bewildering pace, change and competitive pressures spurred on by information and communications technology and social changes, how does the busy, frazzled executive, leader, manager maintain a good work/life balance, remain sane? Find answers at this workshop.
Harnessing the richness of diversity
Time to revisit your vision? Discover a process for a values-based formulation of a shared vision that glues the organisation together, takes account of ‘black swans’ and scenario planning, asks you to look both inside and outside.
Employing deeper mindfulness
Neuroscience is showing how properly applied mindfulness can improve productivity, creativity, client service and business performance. On this workshop you will learn why and how, and take way the 9M model of deeper mindfulness.
Propelling customer service to new heights
Customer complaints increasing, process stumbling blocks being experienced, people issues, technology hampering instead of helping, contact centre no more than average, value-proposition weakening? The secrets to customer service excellence are explored during this workshop – both the forgotten basics from the past as well as new discoveries and insights.
