How we help
Ollie is a proven team-leader and specialises in four core areas:
- Culture & resilience
- Change management
By applying these to the workplace with practical case studies we challenge you across three distinct stages – Inspiration, Exploration, Implementation – to think differently, improving management and productivity in key areas, including:
- Helping leaders lead
- Growing innovation
- Developing teams
- Building relationships
- Resolving challenging or stressful situations
Inspiration – Exploration – Implementation
We don’t like to label what we do ‘motivational speaking’ because it’s a more of a two-way street than that and it typically happens in three phases.
First, in the inspiration stage, we challenge you to think about how you’re operating at the moment. In the exploration stage we find out more about you, your goals and how you’re set up to achieve them. Then in the implementation stage we help you define and grow the culture, behaviour and processes you need to succeed. All of this can happen in a number of ways:
- 45-minute pep talk or speech
- 2-3 hour focused session
- half-day, full day or weekend workshops
- Multiple sessions (typically 3-4) across 3-6 months.
- For competitive prices for these or regular longer-term contact sessions get in touch
