This area of consultancy requires a combination of approaches. First, I work with you to identify your desired outcomes. What do you want to achieve? How will you know you have achieved it? What will be different? I will then provide a proposal of how I believe this can best be achieved. This might include; a strategic review, consultancy support, facilitation, training, management development, leadership development, team building, and/or coaching. A flexible project plan will be agreed with you which meets your timescale and your budget.
Projects have included: organisational restructuring, management and leadership development, team building and change management.
