CUSTOM TRaiNING AND COACHING

Do you need some specific, customised training to achieve some specific outcomes?

We can work with you to understand your current context and what you want to achieve and then tailor coaching and training to match those needs.

We would work with you to understand what is happening and what is trying to happen. Knowing the developmental gap you want to address we would co-create a custom coaching and training package that helps you get there.

Get in touch to explore this further.

How we Train

We frequently shift between movement, speaking, drawing, listening and writing to help maximise your learning experience by addressing the different learning styles everyone has: visual, audible and kinesthetic (moving), observing and doing.

Courses are run over 2 days in person, or 5 half days online. We run our courses in pairs, so you have two coaches guiding you through the content and interactive learning experiences. Attendance is limited to ensure facilitators can give each participant the attention they need.
