20 Emotional Skills to Help Businesses Thrive
We deliver learning experiences for the modern world of work, collaborating with you to build a tailored programme based on the emotional skills needed by your teams in order to thrive. As well as developing the individual, we recognise relationships with others as an essential component to a thriving organisation. We apply psychological and therapeutic insights to team dynamics, encouraging self-awareness and strengthening communication.
Workshops are available virtually or in-person, and each workshop is accompanied by extensive supporting materials designed to help embed the learnings, allowing participants to practise the relevant emotional skills long-term. Each workshop is 2-hours long and for up to 30 people at a time.
