Solutions – Your teams – thriving or just surviving?

The brain is the powerhouse of the body. Its ‘Archilles Heel’ is its thinking part – the mind. Yet we ignore the domino effect our thoughts can cause:

Emotions impact thoughts which impacts our behaviours which impacts on others

Great if those ignition emotions are positive. Teams will be productive, present, empathetic, genuine, expansive, resilient and empowered.

However, what if they are negative? Instead of the positive states, we’ll see disconnection, insensitivity, untrustworthy, limited thoughts, temperamental and possibly the worse state of all – indifference.

Our perception of our Emotional Intelligence and how we ‘show-up’ is not always the same as the reality experienced by those around us.

The services I offer can ensure your teams and business thrive – not just survive:

Digital survey taking the temperature of your workplace on how your teams are thriving in reality, what they expected and what their ideal level is across ten key emotions. This gap analysis is a conversational starter to identify areas of misalignment and exploration of development solutions.

Emotional Intelligence Assessments:

Diverse levels and sectors of assessments reveals areas of alignment and misalignment with raters experience of how those being assessed impact them:

Self – how someone feels about themselves

180 degree assessment – includes peers views of behavioural importance and the demonstration they really see in six core competencies – reveals gaps.

360 degree – as above with the addition on senior managements’ views.

I use the Genos EI assessments which deliver some strong differences with market competitors:

Unique Recruitment – Growing Talent!

Growing Talent is a B2B free service nurturing local unemployed people into permanent jobs giving the employer increased diversity and perspective and the individual the opportunity to take control of and change their lie.

Run in partnership with JobCentre Plus and charities, unemployed people who want to work but lack the confidence and workplace knowledge to secure a job through the traditional recruitment route, go through an information process before attending the first selection stage – we call speed dating.

This is a unique opportunity for unemployed people to meet employers with real jobs and the conviction to train and nurture them into a job which they can grow into a career. Without the shackles of a cv, formal interview, set, standard questions, each party gets to see the ‘real’ person.

The second and final stage selection is held on a 1:1 basis on the prospective employer’s site, enabling both parties to be confident the match is right. Over the term of Growing Talent, both employer and individual get to know each other really well and the future potential growth for both. At the point of hire, both parties KNOW the match is right.

Over the eight years Growing Talent has run, over 200 people of all ages and backgrounds have secured roles they have grown into careers. Both they and their employers said they would not have selected each other in a traditional recruitment route.

We’ve all had two unrelenting years of Covid and the peak and flow of uncertainty continuously taking the control out of our lives. Growing Talent gives some control back to employers and individuals. It’s completely free.
