Elizabeth has adapted each of these workshops to the current Covid-19 situation, the unusual working arrangements, logistical and financial challenges, as well as the tricky emotional responses that have surfaced. They can all be run interactively during this time.
These are some of our most popular workshops, which can be tailored to your company’s needs, whether yours is a small start-up or a FTSE 500 corporation.
With the workplace spanning across three generations, understanding Baby Boomers, Generation X and Millennials is imperative. Whilst diversity is often related to race, gender and sexuality, we know that generational differences also come under this umbrella. Enhanced understanding of ranging generations is key to effective collaboration and communication; maximising staff performance and retention.
Since 2015 millennials have made up over 50% of the workplace. With ongoing difficulty in managing and retaining them effectively, there is a need to understand the nature of millennials better. In this workshop, we’ll look at my research ‘on millennials, by millennials’ in which millennials were interviewed regarding what gets the most out of them at work… and what exactly pushes them to leave!
Failing to adequately identify and address staff mental health issues costs UK businesses billions annually. Thankfully, mental health discussions are higher on the agenda, but education and awareness are vital for staff at all levels; from the C-suite to the intern. This workshop provides a foundation that will enable you to develop a mentally healthy workplace.
Instagram has engaged millions of users, accumulates ‘likes’ from a significant proportion of the population. How do they do it? If only your company could get so much engagement, and approval, from so many people globally! This session looks at the e-book I have produced looking at the top 10 most liked Instagram posts – and what the psychological impact these posts have that has caused a combined approximate 121 million likes!!!
With a range of personality traits, cultures and lived experiences, working with other people can be a bit like an orchestra – it’s either harmonious or it just doesn’t quite come together. It has been found that with better understanding of personalities comes better collaborative work and performance. This session will explore different personality types and how to optimise performance when they all come together.
All too often people are scared of difference. This is a shame, especially since research has repeatedly found that diversity in fact boosts productivity. When carefully harnessed, diversity at work can reap creative and effective results. This session helps you to understand diversity, clue in to why it can feel difficult, but addresses how to embrace difference and get the most out of all that it can offer.
Nonverbal, verbal and technological communication lies at the heart of the workplace, but how much do we know about it? Communication can foster potential and develop creativity if used intelligently. Since it resides at the heart of business – everything from management and meetings to appraisals, clients and deals relies on effective communication – it makes sense to understand what it is and how we can maximise it.
Getting up and trying again can be difficult. Failure can feel personal. Disheartening. Demotivating. Getting up, trying again and learning how to optimise performance thereafter can be even more challenging. Thriving amongst challenges and difficulties in the work place is essential for success, and can be developed with exploration and understanding.
With emotional intelligence (EQ) becoming an increasingly hot topic over the years there is an increasing amount of research associating EQ with staff performance and retention. Like IQ, EQ can be explored and developed in a way that is conducive to higher levels of productivity and performance.
There are multiple ways of viewing the same situation, and some perceptions are more conducive to success than others. Despite common misconceptions, attitudes and perspective can be harnessed with increased knowledge and awareness. This can not only maximise personal performance, but also management of others.
Despite our various differences and nuances, we all have underlying, fundamental human needs. For optimal functioning and performance, these all need to be met. It is important to be aware of these needs so that we can ensure they are being catered for accordingly in the work place, building an environment that encourages peak performance and staff satisfaction.
Understanding how our brains work can help optimise daily functioning. This neurological perspective can help us engage our impulsive tendencies with our sensible decision-making faculties. Enhanced awareness and understanding of these basic yet intricate processes leads to enhanced understanding of ourselves and others we encounter.
Culture keeps the workforce united in performance, values and behaviour. If culture is purposefully curated, your company will attract and retain the best talent in the field, whilst encouraging higher performance and engagement. Company culture isn’t something you can afford to leave to build itself. In this session we’ll unpack the elements that every workplace culture needs to consider and provide the building blocks for you to create your own.
“The session was really interesting. I was genuinely shocked at some of the generational differences we had in the room... Had never really thought about it before!”
Really enjoyed your workshop, the format worked very well.”
“I thought that your subject provides a good topic as 'everyone talks about millennials' but few have any structured and tangible understanding and insights. Even fewer have formal strategies for embracing, managing and developing millennials effectively. It is a rich and interesting topic that everyone can contribute to and I thought that you engaged with and pulled everyone into the meeting really well.”
